It might be an over sight, but is the recharge can been punctured?? With the recharge hose connected to the service port and the R134a can. close the valve and then open the valve to let the R143a empty out in the system. If you have done that and the compressor has not come on to pull the R134a out of the can, shake the can till the compressor activates to pull the R134a in to the system. In this case you may need up to thee cans, your system has a capacity of 1 pound and you only have a 12 ounce can. Good luck and don't over charge the system. Keep me posted, be glad to help.

If the freon level is ok, you have an electrical problem somewhere. The system will not activate because the control module "thinks" the freon level is low or because of another problem. It could be the module too.
You'll need a shop manual to get the test procedures for climate control ac to check the components and circuits.

Most of the Toyotas in your year range have an updated AC relay. If the system is full of freon, the pressure switches are operable, try replacing the relay.

If the system is low of freon, it won't allow the compressor to start up.

There is an easy way to check the compressor clutch, but I can't explain it unless you understand how a relay works and which pins to connect in the relay box.

Ac won't get cold anymore power to compressor but won't click on clutch won't engage possible problems are compressor or evaporator what do you think?

Has the Freon been checked with a gauge to see if there is enough Freon to allow the system to work. Low or no Freon will not allow the compressor to engage. The low pressure switch is most likely activated due to low freon, and will cause this condition.

I'm trying to put freon in my car and it won't take it... What can the problem be?

To put freon in the system,the vehicle has to be running and turn the ac to max. it may take 5 minutes or so per can . if it still won't take it ,the valve where you are refilling could be bad or after you put the hose on the can of freon you have to unscrew the t handle screw that is used to puncture the can to release the freon through the hose.

My ac is not working properly cold air only blows thru 2 vents the other 2 only air but not cold...put freon and wasnt a solution...

If you put the can freon in you probably did not equal out the high side as well. The gauge on the can freon won't help you. You need the professional gauges to get it right. Sounds weird but That's what happens on GM's when the pressure is not correct for the ambient temp.

AC compressor works but cool air does not come out.

it sounds like you are low on freon. to check this you will need to follow the ac lines until you find one with a cap on it you will need to take off the cap and attach a gage that will tell you if your freon is low you can usually get a gage when you get the freon. make sure you don't over fill the system if you so the compressor still won't work and you could wreck something in the system.

How do I put freon into 1993 grand cherokee 5.2 engine?

Look for the large ac line/hose coming out of the ac compressor,and follow that line until you come to a small ac port,this is the low side where you will hook up to to charge.I take it you have purchased a charge hose and freon?Put the can of 134a freon on the can tap at end of charge hose,and the quick connect will snap on the low side ac port on the vehicle.Turn the freon can upside down and turn the t handle on the can tap until it pierces the can.Start the vehicle,and set all settings high blower motor,max air,recirculate mode.The ac compressor should cycle on and off,this is normal,until there is enough freon in system.When the can starts to empty,shake the can lightly until empty.It will be hard to tell,but you will figure it out.Turn the can t-handle back out,and unscrew the can an repeat process until enough freon is in the system.You can get to much freon in the see hoe much it takes to fill it on the label under the hood.If the system was not empty,it won`t take the fill amount,go slow,and feel the cold parts(large ac line near the firewall).They should get dern cool,to cold,and sweating really good.Stop when this happens,and it is cool inside.
