Yes there is. I am not sure with the car that you have but it should be found either in the box (it would be indicated in the cover which relays are for) in the engine bay where most relays are located or under the dash where some manufacturers would put it.

Have a 1988 Lincoln Town Car, have put in new A/C compressor,new drier, new condenser, new hoses, new evaporator & full of freon. But compressor want cycle, what could be my problem???


If the compressor wOnt cycle, it means that the pressure is not correct. How much freon, (and what type) did you put in, and did you PULL DOWN (with vacuum) the system to about -29 inches before putting the freon in? Did you use manifold gauges? If so, what is the high pressure, and what is the low pressure, at what ambient temperature?

Could be a fuse or a relay. You may need a wiring diagram to track the power to the compressor clutch.

Air conditioner compressor won't come on to accept freon charge


unplug the clutch cycling switch its on the accumulator jumper the the wire plug ccs also works as low pressure switch and will cut off a/c comp when system is low on freon you may also need to disconnect negative cable from battery for appx 10 minutes leave jumper until system charged then remove it plug connector into ccs (clutch cycling switch ) on accumulator if properly charged system should cycle on and off

Air conditioning compressor not getting power on 96 Chevy Tahoe


Freon is what you are missing, our more specificly a refigerant charge that exceeds 45psi on the low side pressure line. This system has two pressure switches, a high side cut-out switch mounted on the rear of the compressor, and a low side or pressure cycling switch on the suction line.
Jump the low side switch contacts to ensure the electronics are sound for this system. If the compressor cycles, you know the system is low on a refrigerant charge. Turning on the AC is a request, and certain criteria must be met before the system operates as designed. Good luck

A/c compressor engages intermittently


Check the connections on the plug going to the compressor clutch and on the pressure switch on the low side. Also check the gap on the clutch. It may be too wide after where to engage correctly. Good luck.

A/C Clutch not engaging on my Tuarus 1998


YOU CHECKED ALLOT BUT YOU DID NOT MENTION THE AC COMPRESSOR CYCLING SWITCH, DID YOU TEST IT? DOES THE COMPRESSOR RUN IF YOU JUMP IT, HAVE U CHECKED TO SEE IF THE COMPRESSOR TERMINAL HAS 12 VOLTS AND GROUND WHEN TURNED ON? THE CYCLING SWITCH AND THE COMPRESSOR CLUTCH ARE ALMOST ALWAYS THE PROBLEM WHEN THE SYSTEM IS CHARGED BUT THE COMPRESSOR DOES NOT RUN.
