No electrical power to AC Compressor. The switch light comes on in car when AC power button is turned on.


  1. Check if air blows with the fan setting turned to high.
  2. Check that the radiator cooling fan engages when the A/C button is pressed.
  3. Locate the compressor.
  4. Turn on the A/C.
  5. Check if the compressor's clutch has been engaged.
  6. If the clutch engages, the fault is elsewhere.
  7. If the clutch does not engage, check for power to the clutch.
These steps might help find the problem.

Radiator fan always engaged when AC is on


Radiator fan is supposed to blow anytime the A/C is on. Thats how you check to see if a fan is working, cause its supposed to blow anytime the A/C is on , but not neccesarily anytime the engine is running.

Why does the compressor for the ac on my 2003 ford focus keep clicking ?


I assume it's because your clutch is engaging and disengaging. Could be from a loose electrical plug to your compressor coil on the compressor. It could be a loose plug to the pressure sensor or a bad pressure sensor because that sensor will shut it off if the car is low on Freon causing low pressure in the system. Could be low on Freon so it's on the edge of having enough pressure to turn it on and then shuts it down again because it dips below the pressure threshold when the compressor kicks in. Could be a bad compressor coil that engages the clutch. Maybe a loose connector to the AC Button in the car or the AC Button is intermittent. Could be an intermittent relay engaging the compressor clutch. That's a good list of what all could cause it and if you end up needing to replace the compressor, I made a video on how I did it.

I ust had the water pump replaced. Now my ac has gone out. I know nothing about cars but I do know that I hear a strange noise and the front part of the ac unit was turning and now it's not. It seems...


It is unlikely that the replacement of the water pump and AC failing are related, however ensure that the V belt is correctly positioned and under tension. The AC pulley should be spinning continuously by the V belt. The AC compressor is engaged by an electrically operated clutch within/behind the pulley wheel. If the pulley wheel is not spinning but the belt is sliding over it then you have a seized AC compressor and this will most probably need replacing. If the wheel is spinning but the AC compressor is not working (no cooling) then it is the clutch that is not engaging. This could be due to a worn clutch, failed clutch actuator, broken electrical connection, failed relay, broken fuse a failed interior thermostat (the car thinks that the 'set' temperature has been reached and so switches the AC off). To check, put the AC on the lowest setting and test the voltage at the AC compressor connection. If voltage is being supplied it is likely to be a failed AC clutch. There are lots of AC clutch repair videos on youtube and these should be a great help.

I replaced an AC clutch. I tested it with lead wires, it engages. When I plug it in with the AC on it will not engage. I have 13 volts to the plug with AC on. what would keep the clutch from engaging if I...


Hi

Here to understand why it’s not engaging first check the electric system, fuses, circuit breaker, and connection to the clutch assembly. Chances are your refrigerant level is low and the low pressure cut out switch is preventing the clutch from engaging in order to protect the compressor. You can jump across the terminals at the overload fuse to check operation of the clutch but only for a short period of time in case your system is low on oil. Evacuate and recharge the system to resolve the issue.

Let us know if you want to know something else accept the suggestion.

My ac on mt 2000 xterra works when it wants to but


you have a electrical problem either in the control panel or the a/c compressor clutch connector
tray by moving the plug on the side of the compressor clutch. if that engage and disengage the clutch replace the connector "pig trail".
but if that don't change wait on till the a/c is not working unplug the a/c compressor and cornet a test light on the loose cable
if you don't get any power replase your climate control module.

1997 Eagle Talon AC button switch blinks AC won't work


If the button is blinking, this means the clutch is either worn out, or the clutch is not engaging because of an electrical problem. Check the electrical connection going to the AC, does it look alright? Is there any fluid inside the connector? I would replace the AC compressor if the clutch persists to not engage.

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.
