I would like to bypass the pcm to check if the compressor is bad or if its the pcm


U have basically two wires running to compressor - a hot and a ground. Identify the hot wire and splice into it a hot wire from the wall. If compressor is good it should immediately kick on.

Ac not working not a fuse or relay ?


The accumulator or dryer looks like a long cylinder, it has a pressure switch on it and two wires attached to it. pull the wired molex off, with the ac set on max cooling, jump out the two wires with a wire or paperclip, if the clutch on the ac compressor engages, check the cab to see if its cooling, if it does cool the switch needs to be replaced, if it does not cool, you may need freon, and there could be a sign of a leak in your system, that can be best checked with ac manifold guages. the low pressure switch is there for safety if the canistor or accumulator is low or has no freon the switch opens up and keeps the clutch from running so that the compressor will not burn up. good luck!

A/c on 97 chevy blazer v6 will not stay on unless I hot wire it and then it still blows hot air. what might be the next thing i check or do to find the problem?


It is probably low on freon. The low pressure switch will turn it off to protect the compressor because it needs the freon to circulate the oil. Hot-wiring it defeats the purpose of the low pressure switch and runs the compressor without oil. If you have not already destroyed your compressor by hot-wiring it, you can probably get it working better by charging the system.

I have a 1998 GMC Jimmy & there's no power going to my low pressure switch which is located on the accumulator. I ran a hot wire from the battery to the ac compressor, filled the system with 1.8lbs of...


Running a hot wire bypasses any compressor cycling. Low side should pull down to 20 psi or less when compressor is hot wired. If not pulling down you may have weak compressor or way to much freon in system.

Sounds like low freon, the switch I believe is working, by you a can of 134a with an attached hose/gage and add a little, cost about $16.00 for the can of freon and you should have some left over for next year.

1998 Nissan Altima -Trying to check and see if the clutch on the compressor is or isn't kicking on. On my GMC the pressure switch on the Accumulator is 2 wire and easy to bypass. The Nissan has 4 wires,...


Using a power probe or a test light, you have to check to see if you have power running to the clutch first. If yes, then the wire to the clutch is usually grounded to the compressor itself, so you find it by working backwards from the ground. Hope this helps.

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

Ac compressor won't kick on


Just had the same issue and posted. Just found the solution is the control module in the dash. Went to the junk yard since new is expensive on these units. Plugged new unit in, was able to charge a/c now blows cold as ice.
