Question about 1994 Cadillac Eldorado

1 Answer

2000 Caddilac Eldorado Compressor won't kick in

Compressor will not kick in. No power to energize the compressor relay. When relay is bypassed from the hot side, the compressor operates and will freeze you out. Cycling switch bypassed along with all other switches, still no power to compressor relay. Any idea? Thanks.

1993 Eldorado Cadillac ac compressor won't take freon. Display says compressor off, low refrigerant. How to bypass computer? Can compressor relay be jumped using paper clip? Which holes? to


Grab some refrigerant gauges and take readings. If the low side has more than 40 psi or so of pressure, the low limit switch will close and allow the compressor to run. If there is indeed low pressure causing the compressor not to run, you will need to flush the system after eliminating the source of the leak. If the a/c compressor has never been changed, it is probably the source of the leak.

AC compressor won't turn on by itself.


I would check the low pressure switch next. The switch cuts power to the compressor if the pressure is too low. The switch can fail.
Same goes for the high pressure safety switch.
As for leaving the relay bypassed, you would need to use a test light or meter to see if you are using battery power with the key off. I would not recommend it.

First thing is have the AC charge checked by a shop, if that is OK then the AC compressor low side pressure switch may be defective or the compressor relay is defective.

AC compressor will not energize


First thing you should check is all your grounds, on the body and your battery connections. Also double checked to make sure you have the air conditioning on with the fan on. If this is good the next thing to do is to get a wiring diagram. Verify that there's power going into the switching and coming out of the switch. Next find the compressor relay verify that there's power going two it. If this is good use your tests light to ground out the relay. If this works find out where the ground wire goes to the computer or the wide open relay. Good luck.

My 2000 eldorado low refrigerant warning came on-I tried to hook a can of 134a up but it woudn't take it---the compressor didn't kick in-is there a sensor/switch you have to reset so that it will kick in?...


Because improper use of refrigerants, polute the atmosphere and hardly anyone has A/C training and the proper equipment to work on automobiles, I only recommend ,you take it to a repair shop.
Some people here will help you, but when you lack auto technology and refrigerant knowledge, any help you get will not be of much use. It is a steep learning curve, to work on todays high tech vehicles

Dodge Ram AC not blowing cold


By pass both pressure switches one at a time with small wire or a paper clip. If comperssor kicks on replace the swich that you bypassed.
if not it could be the fan clutch ot the compressor. Compressor runs about $400.00
