SOURCE: 2001 dodge stratus clutch wont turn on

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

SOURCE: How do I change turn signal flasher on 1997 Dodge

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.

SOURCE: 2001 dodge stratus air conditioning

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

Siezed up a/c compressor

Usually pretty hard to find to get the right one. There might be one that fits your Stratus if a model was produced that had your same engine but without air conditioning. But keep in mind that that other model may have the other belt-driven accessories in a different location on the engine than yours. So the belt may or may not fit.

An alternative is to buy an "A/C Delete Pulley and Bracket" and install that in place of your compressor. It's just a free wheeling pulley set-up, then you can use the same belt without having to find a replacement size. Some company makes them, they probably have an application for the Stratus.

My air condition work only when I hot wire the compressor clutch. Otherwise it not engaging when I turn on the ac.

You have to insert a can of R134A refrigerant and hose on the low pressure port.
Normally it is the fatter of the two hoses coming from the compre3ssor.It should then kick in with the A/C switch engaged.
If not you may have a bad fuse,switch,compressor,or relay.

2001 Dodge Stratus AC goes on and off?

Check the fuse for a/c compressor make sure it is completely pushed in slot then check wiring going to the high and low pressure switchs also if you have electric fans on radiator make sure it comes on when you turn on the a/c that would most likely be the cause of intermittent a/c issue also check plug on compressor if it was a lack of freon it wouldn't work at all

The ac in my 2006 dodge 2500 gas engined truck does not blow cold when the engine is at idle. when running normal speeds the air gets cold

start by cleaning or replacing your in cabin air filter. check to see if your AC condenser fan is turning when the AC is turned on. Make sure the front of the radiator is not clogged with bugs, mud, etc. Check AC compressor relay-make sure the compressor clutch is turning the compressor with engine at idle. lastly check for proper refrigerant charge.

My 2005 Dodge Stratus is having air conditioner problems. I just replaced the alternator. The next day, it was hot enough outside to run the air conditioner. When I turned it on, I only received hot...

The pressure switch on the accumilator is at fault if you bypassed it and the compressor worked. Remove the plug-in on switch and move plug away from the accumilator. Then with a small wrench or small pliers remove pressure switch. (be sure to grab it at the base as close as possible). The freon will stay in the system after removal of switch ( there is a valve core inside the accumilator DO NOT REMOVE IT) Replace the switch and check to see that a new o-ring is on switch. Use a little refrigerent oil to lubericate the o-ring before installing. Hope this will help you.

Air Conditioning of my Renault Megane is not


Have the driver's door window open and the front bonnet open,
we are going to listen for a clicking noise, the noise that we are listening for is the Compressor engagement being activated after three seconds from the control panel.

Start the engine and switch on the air conditioning by pressing the AC button (with a request for maximum cold temperature and the passenger compartment fan running).

If you hear that clicking noise, then it is most likely that you have a leak from the AC system or a possibly in need of a top up do to service of the system not been carried out.

Otherwise if you don't hear that clicking noise then there is a case that the Compressor clutch is not being engaged.

Do to the following reasons

1. fuse blown in the UPC in other terms the fuse box (engine compartment)

2. AC Compressor faulty

3. AC pressure switch faulty

4. If there is not the slightest bit of pressure left in the system which is very unlikely.

I hope this information was somewhat helpful for a real diagnosis test a diagnostic tool is needed.

2005 stratus w/burning smell, ac cycling fast and blowing hot air

Sounds like your ac system in low. To get the compressor to engage you must find ac resistor (usually under hood with fuses) and cross connect circuits. Most time right to left corners, you can hear and see compressor clutch engage. Now, fill system with proper refrigerant.
Once charged, compressor will=should cut on and off properly.
