Hi everyone, i hope you can help me... The air condition compressor of my dodge stratus 2005 works perfectly while the engine is 900 rpm but when i speed up the engine, the compressor turns off and begin to work like a flasher... This fail got broken the AC compressor but I already change it for a new one... And another thing i saw is that the negative wire of the AC relay get flashing at the time i speed up the engine...

SOURCE: ac problem
if the compressor is not engaging,the clutch on the front of compressor may be faulty..remove a/c clutch relay from fuse block underhood and jump relay pins 30 and 87 with engine running..clutch should engage..make sure you have power on pin 30
you may have a faulty a/c pressure transducer

i presume it was recharged by a certified hvac tech, then take it back that should still be under warranty,otherwise check your a/c relay hvac /fan fuse control circuit,with car engine turned off switch on ignition,but dont start,you should hear a click from the clutch magnet on the compressor,and if possible check for 12volts d.c. at clutch wires lack of voltage wont let comp operate,then it needs to be diagnosed from clutch back thru to fuse/relay panel

I would not attempt as the steering wheel has to be removed and this involves the air bag. You will save money by taking it to a mechanic, rather than blowing an airbag.

you can but it is a lot of work. many pulley changes bracket changes. you have to find the same engine that does not have AC and take all needed parts off of that. it is not worth it. consider just going to a salvage yard and getting a used compressor. it doesnt even have to work, it just has to have good bearings. it would be a lot less work going this route. any questions, reply back
