2000 Mercury Villager compressor wont kick on

2000 Mercury Villager, a/c compressor will not kick on, it is charged, if I take off the low pressure switch and bridge it, still doesnt, if I take out a/c relay and bridge terminals, it kicks on. Someone suggested maybe the high pressure switch could be causing this? I have done all steps in Haynes manual for testing, showing no power at compressor, BUT then it wouldnt work by bridging relay I wouldnt think. help?

    Fuse is good and I swapped the relay with the fuel pump relay, car still ran. If the low pressure switch was it would that keep it from working even with taking it off and bridging the terminals? I believe the climatic control is okay because when I turn everything on the clutch fan kicks on like it does when bridging, showing me all is functioning except the actual compressor. How do I check for ECM interruption? and I have not checked the continuity at the compressor yet.

PERHAPS IT IS JUST A BAD RELAY THAT NEEDS TO BE REPLACED. HAVE YOU TRIED TO SWAP IT WITH ANOTHER ONE IN THE FUSE BOX? THIS MAYBE THE ONLY TROUBLE. MAKE SURE THAT THE FUSE IS ALSO GOOD BEFORE THE RELAY IS REPLACED. HOPE THIS HELPS. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA AND FOR AN HONEST RATING IN ADVANCE. BEST OF LUCK. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED.

Hello maddaddy23...if the low pressure switch on your villager is not stuck open, check the compressor clutch coil it could be open (shorted or loose), Check the climatic control switch... and last but not least make sure compressor operation has not been interrupted by ECM...
Good luck...i hope this helps

You need some manifold gauges to determine what you are doing. Autozone and Oreillys lend tools out for the deposit. When you return the tools you get your deposit back.
There should be a A/C sticker under the hood to show the capacity of the system. Its by volume so it will only hold so much no matter what kind you used.

The ideal amount of Freon will keep the pressure in a range between 2 extremes. You have a low pressure switch and a high pressure switch. When the system is circulating the Freon the pump will run the longest when the pressure is in the middle.

If the oblong tank is frosting up and the lines from it have frost, then you have enough. The tank should be sweating vigorously. You are probably close to full but I don't think you need a full can to top off. This is where the gauges matter.

2000 saab 95 air con - relay not receiving message to start compressor.


a/c systems have what is called a low pressure switch, If there isnt enough pressure(freon) in it the compressor wont kick on. I would read the pressures and go from there. 99% of the time when a compressor wont turn on i find that it is low on freon.

1997 Mercury villager, Air conditioner was working, now compressor kicks on and off, shows over charge in the red, why? Nobody added any freon.


high pressure is usually from heat not being removed from freon in the condensor. Usually it's because the cooling fan is not sucking air through the condensor. Check your cooling fan relays (3) in the battery box in front of the battery. Also, check to see if cooling fan has failed.
Does it work ok when the engine is cold and then quit after engine warm up? That would be a clue. When pressure gets too high, there is a high pressure cut-off switch.

Other posibility is a restrcition in the system. not common though.

Why a/c runs cold for a while then stop in 1996 mercury villager?


POSSIBLY YOUR HI SIDE PRESSURE SWITCH. YOU MAY WANT YOU'RE HI AND LOW SIDES OF SYSTEM CHECKED OUT. SOUNDS LIKE COMPRESSOR IS RUNNING TOO LONG AND HIGH SIDE PRESSURES ARE SHUTTING SYSTEM DOWN UNTIL IT DROPS IN PRESSURE AND CYCLES AGAIN

My AC compressor on a 99 V6 Cougar does not stay on for more than 3 seconds at a time. The charge is ok but the compressor kicks out 2-3 sec after it starts. I think it is the capacitor????


no its not the capacitor.
put more freon in it untill it stops cycling on and off.
thats the low pressure switch keeping the comp from killing it self on the suchion side.

it needs more freon .

A/c wont come on


have the system charge checked, the system waring is activated by this condition in most cases, u can confirm that by putting a jumper wire across the low pressure AC compressor cycling switch located in the low pressure line from the compressor near the accumulator.
