SOURCE: Volkswagen passat 96 AC relay location

You should never connect a 12volt to the compressor solenoid.unless you unplug it first, because on some cars the ac solenoid is driven by an electronic circuit. Semiconductors are very sensitive to excessive current. I once had to repair the computer on a mercedes because the other mechanic did that. Luckily I know how to repair electronic circuits, or they would have bought a 500 dollars computer the little chip that blew only costed a dollar fifty cents at radio shack,.LOL. Anyways back to your problem, Have you checked if there is a leak, and all the refrigerant might have leaked out? This would prevent the compressor from coming on. Along the ac line there is a switch, sometimes by the reciever drier, when the system looses refrigerant the pressure inside drops and that pressure switch disable the compressor. , and the compressor wont come on. This is to protect the compressor, because it will be damaged if you run it without refrigerant. Ac clutch solenoid is usually is not driven by relay, because an ac solenoid don't really take much current to to kick in, unless of course it is shorted. It would either be directly from the inside switch usually in series with the fan control or driven by a small transistor in a circuit, and the electronic circuit is driven by the ac controls inside. I think the problem with your ac is that it has no refrigerant thats why the compressor wont come on.

SOURCE: air conditioner relay location 2004 passat

hi,
the a/c pressure switch is located to the left side of the condenser radiator, as you stand in front of the vehicle. you may have to remove the bumper in order to get access to this switch.
there are 2 relays dealing with the a/c , numbers 16 and 17, on the relay plate at the drivers knees, the plastic panel will have to come down. 16 is the clutch relay and 17 is a/c control module.
hope this is of some help

Where is the air compressor dryer located on a 1999 mercury mystique


I assume you mean the ac compressor dryer. It is located on the large low pressure suction pipe between the ac compressor and the firewall of the vehicle. It is about the size of a tall beer can and will have the large pipe going in one side and out the other.

2007 passat ac compressor will not engage doesnot have electric clutch plenty of freon fuses good no codes


Check the Aircon pressure switch, try another if possible. Switch located on Aircon condenser behind front bumper. Either a to high or to low pressure in the system will prevent the compressor from engaging. Pressure switches do go faulty at times.

Brake/ABS/Traction lights on plus no AC


These problems do not seem to be related at all. The cause of the warm ac air could be several things from a low refrigerant charge to a plugged condensor fins to the compressor clutch not kicking in. You just have to follow a systematic approach when diagnosing these problems.
