Question about 1996 GMC Jimmy
The clutch cycle switch is on the accumulator by the A/C housing, it looks like a silver cylinder. You can replace the new cycle switch without discharging the system, just unscrew the old one and screw in the new one. Just make sure you hove the new switch ready and the O rings have oil on them, need to be quick so you don't lose that much R134.
After installing the new R134 check the R134 pressure and recharge if low. Good luck and hope this helps. Note: if the system is low on R134 the clutch will not activate or if the relay is bad too.
The relay is in the glove box, at the back of the glove box there is a access door labeled relay. There are three relay's in there, the fuel pump, rear brake light and the A/C. Think the middle one is the fuel pump and can't remember which is the brake light. If you have someone push on the brake's you can feel which relay is the brake light. You can always swap the relays around.
Good luck and hope this helps.
