Question about 1997 Buick LeSabre
Long story short: I totaled my 97 Buick LeSabre on a deer, and in rebuilding it had to replace the A/C condenser. The work was done during winter, so I have waited until today to put a vacuum pump on the system and recharge it. The clutch will not kick in when the A/C is turned on (for charging), so we bypassed the wiring to run the compressor, but even with refrigerant in the system, the compressor still will not run via the car's electrical system. I am assuming there is something wrong with the cutout switch, but cannot verify this as I do not know where it is located. Am I on the right path, and where is this switch?
It has a low pressure sensor on the low side line. You put freon in first and when there is enough pressure the compressor will come on. Never straight wire it, you might cause more damage.
