Find the connector near the canister(tall aluminum and about 4 inches in diameter) and remove it from the pressure switch. Put a paper clip across the two connection pins and start the vehicle. With some one else watching at the same time turn on your AC. Make sure you only do this for about 5 seconds or you can fry the compressor. Generally they won't operate because the Freon level is to low to keep the system lubricated and cooling. You can pick up a refill kit for around 30-40 dollars, no, its not like the old days.The instructions are very specific and easy to follow. In about 15 minutes you'll have nice cold air again, as long as it's above 65-75 degrees outside.If you still think it's a relay, take the one from something else(not pertinent to the engine operation) and switch them. That's it.

Ac compressor clutch does not have power going to it. Clutch relay is energizing and both pressure switches are closed. Is there any other device that can break the circuit? 1997 dodge ram 1500

You most likely have a wire .or connection problem,the ac clutch relay directs 12 volts directly to the ac clutch,if needed,find the wire,from relay,to the ac clutch,and run a new one to correct the problem,if his was at all helpful please rate,thank you.

You can only purchase R134a. If your vehicle still has R12, you'll need to have a system retrofit kit installed. If it has been converted, there should be a label in the engine compartment.

1990 dodge carvan won;t start back up when it get hot but when it cool off it will start jj

Check starter relay at the time of a no start. It will be the 2nd relay from the water jug. Just have someone to attempt to start it while you are holding you hand on that relay. It it doesn't click, tap it with the back of a screwdriver handle. If it starts then, replace the relay.

Changing spark plugs

as you know the front ones are rather easy to get to, but the rear bank is a bear..the best way is on a lift but you can get to them using a 3/8 rachet a 3inch extension and the plug socket.. take the air tube off the throttle body.. reach under the throttle body behind the engine you will feel the plug wires that way.. once you get the wires off the plugs are a pain but changable..
