Question about 1996 Toyota Camry
My 96 Camry a/c switch (as well as the defroster switch) does not engage the compressor clutch. I changed the swithes inside but was not the problem. The a/c switch stays green and does not blink. As far as I know, I do not have an AUTO button for climate control. I jumpered the compressor and the cluch works fine. At the wiring harness plug near the compressor, it appears there is no power at the plug when switch is on. Although the a/c has not work for a long time, recently, it did start working and blew COLD air for a long time. However, once car was turned off, the switch stopped working again. It appears the AC is ok, but must be something electrical going on between the switches and compressor. Also, coolant level looks good in the sight glass. Help...its summer and getting hot.
May be a part called an Amplifier, The compressor on my 96 toyota Camry was cycling off, there was no refrigerant leak , compressor itself was ok ended up being the Amplifier1

The pressures of the refrigerant must be close or the system pressure sensors will not let the AC cluch pull in. AC is just not wise for DIY without some gauges and knowledge. Sorry.
