2001 nissan pathfinders a/c compressor will not cycle on

System has been recharged to 1.88lbs, I have replaced the a/c relay and the hi/low pressure shut off switch. I can hot wire the compressor and it works great. I have constant power to the number 1 and 3 terminal on the relay block and good ground. but I still cannot get the compressor to work normally. any suggestions?

There is a sensor in the evaporator box, I believe its a cabin temp sensor. Need to bypass or replace it.

SOURCE: Where can i find the Low pressure switch on my 92

The low pressure switch in an A/C system cannot be manually "switched" on or off.
most A/C systems have 2 switches. Both of these switches are "switched" by the pressure of the freon in the system.
One is located on the high side of the system, and the other is on the low side of the system. The one located on the high side is a normally closed switch that opens the A/C clutch circuit and shuts the compressor off when the high side pressure gets dangerously high - usually around 350 - 400 PSI. This keeps you from having an explosion in the event that the hoses become restricted for any number of possible reasons.
The low pressure switch opens the A/C clutch circuit and shuts the compressor off when there is not enough pressure on the low side of the system to safely operate the system. usually somewhere around 20 PSI. The compressor is oiled by oil circulating along with the freon in the system. If the freon leaks out, the pressure drops and the oil cannot circulate because there is not enough freon to push it through the system. So the low pressure switch shuts the compressor off to keep the compressor from blowing up due to oil starvation.
Failure of these switches is very rare. Almost every one that I have replaced was not because the switch didn't switch, but because it was leaking freon.
If your low pressure switch is keeping your A/C compressor from running, it is most likely that the system is either out of freon (due to a leak somewhere in the system) or because it is unplugged.
Your Nissan is equipped with a "Dual Pressure" switch. it does the job of both switches by opening under extremely high pressure as well as extremely low pressure conditions. it is located beween the front grill and the A/C condensor near the Accumulator just to the right (as you are facing the front of the car) of the right headlamp area. See picture.50e4218.gif To determine if this switch is functioning properly, you must hook-up an A/C pressure manifold gauge (to find out what the actual system pressure is) and use a volt/ohm meter to determine if the switch is opening and closing under the correct pressures.

105 psi? If so that is way to hi...especially for a mid-sized car. You ideally want you pressure to be between 40-50 psi. If you pressure is that hi you might have blown the pressure valve on you compressor, which is not a part that is sold seperately. You should take your car to your local Pep Boys and have them run a A/C diagnostic which runs around $45 to give you an better idea. If you don't know what you're doinf the A/C system is not something you want to play a guessing game with. Especially since it's illegal to work on it without the proper tools and licenses.

2001 Nissan Altima air conditioner turns on and


It is normal for it to turn on and off to some degree. Low refrigerant will cause the A/C compressor to cycle on and off more frequently. You most likely have a slow leak. Eventually it will not work at all when the pressure gets too low. You may need a recharge, that might fix your problem temporarily. There are dyes you can put in with the refrigerant to detect where your leak is.

When i turn on the a/c,the compressor does not work


CHECK REFRIGERANT CHARGE. USING A MANIFOLD GAUGE SET. HOOK MANIFOLD GAUGE SET TO LOW PRESSURE PORT AND HIGH PRESSURE SIDE PORT. LOW SIDE PRESSURE SIDE SHOULD HAVE 25 - 36 PSI AND HIGH PRESSURE SIDE SHOULD BE 178 - 237 PSI. IF LOW SIDE PRESSURE SIDE READ BELOW 20 PSI THE LOW PRESSURE SWITCH WILL NOT TURN ON THE AC COMPRESSOR CLUTCH NEED TO ADD LITTLE MORE REFRIGERANT. IF REFRIGERANT LEVEL CORRECT CHECK AC COMPRESSOR FUSE AND RELAY.IF POWER GOING TO AC COMPRESSOR CLUTCH YOUR COMPRESSOR CLUTCH HAS OPEN WINDING. AC COMPRESSOR CLUTCH NEED REPLACING.

No a/c not cooling at all it does cycle on and off the compressor turns on and off just charged has dual heating and cooling controls blend door sounds like it is working but only after you turn it off...


Compressor may be worn, unable to generate enough pressure to cool effectively. Could also be clogged expansion valve. If compressor checks out OK on high and low side pressure gauges, moisture in AC system is likely cause. Replacement of accumulator/receiver-dryer and vacuum purging prior to recharging system would correct this. It sounds like the air door actuator may also be faulty, or the HVAC computer may be malfunctioning do to pressure and thermal sensors registering a fault.

2001 Chrysler Voyager - A/C won't engage


This definately sounds like the clutch cycling switch or the low pressure switch is bad. You just simply evacuate the system, screw off the old and screw on the new and then evacuate and recharge the system. This should get you fixed. You might also want to check and make sure that you have enough refirgerant in the system. If there is not enough then this switch will not allow power to flow to the clutch to prevent any damage to the compressor from there not being enough oil in the system.
