Every vehicle develop small leaks over period of time or soon will quit, its common for all vehicle although parts tend to ware and brakes. I would first check the fuses and relays making sure they are good. second check the pressure and the pressure switch. if you systems running low on refrigerant (feon) than you have small leaks or running low. if there not enough pressure in your systems than it wont trigger the switch to run the compressor and that may not cause the AC unit not to run. If your ac just quit running all of sudden, more likely its probably low on freon, than again switch may also be bad. if everything check out as fuses,switch,pressure than next would compressor.the switch will have two wire to it, location can be on the line, on compressor, evaporator and for most of kia on top of the dryer.I would have the systems check for proper pressure before you start replacing different parts. want to save some money, you can get most expensive parts from a junk yard, like compressor, evaporator and motors.

Replaced compressor on 2007 Kia Sereno and compressor wont kick on. What's the problem? Please help.


ac compressors are controlled by relays , switches , high and low pressure switches and fuses
replacing the ac compressor will require the gas charge to be administered as too little or too much will affect the high/low pressure switches
have it inspected by an accredited ac specialist shop for a proper diagnosis and a quote

Why won't the A/C turn on?


You did put 134a back in? But possibly not enough? There is a pressure safety switch somewhere in the system that detects pressure and opens the circuit if not enough freon. At least that is where I would start. Does the Compressor turn freely otherwise by hand? Did you get enough compressor oil into the system (new Compressors need special charge with compressor oil).

Ac light wont come on to start ac. replaced ac relay fuse and recharged ac. still doesnt work


does the blower motor work when the heat is turned on?
Also, have the pressure sensors in the a/c system checked. A bad sensor here would prevent the a/c system from working.
ALSO,
Check for power at fuses # 1, 5, and 6. If power if present, you'll have to check for power at the a/c switch, a DB/OR wire (Dark Brown wire with an Orange strip).
The BCM (Body Control Module) controls the a/c operation.

When i turn my car on, my ac wont start up automatically anymore. I have to do it manually.


Your low pressure switch may have cut out the power. Since winter doesn't see much need for AC, the system can weep down. Find the switch and temporarily bypass it with a paperclip (no more than 30 seconds!) and see if the air gets cool, if it does, then re-plug it back in. If it doesn't work, then you are probably low on "freon" 134A.

Ac clutch not kicking on


ADD Freon. It's a R134 system and the pressure is too low. Trust me add Freon and it will work fine. With a low amount of Freon if you jump the low pressure switch at the accumulator it will be very cold but will not have enough pressure to kick on the low pressure switch.

Ac compressor on 92 f350 wont turn on but system is charged


The most common issue with automotive ac not turning on when the system is properly charged is a bad low pressure switch. The easyist way to check is find the switch in the low side line unplug the 2 wires from the back of it and jump the two wires together. If the switch is bad this will turn the ac compressor on, caution should be taken when doing this because if the system is not properly charged and you force it on by jumping the pressure switch you can seriously damage the compressor.

Air conditioning comp not turn on


if you used a pressure washer ,you could have caused a leak ,if there is no freon the low pressure switch wont let the compressor turn on,even if you didnt use high pressure,engine degreaser may remove corrosion on the line set or the condenser ,also causing a leak, the high or low pressure switches may still be wet, follow the line set ,fat line (low pressure switch with a plug w/2 wires)unplug it make sure its not still wet inside,do the same to the high pressure switch on the small line,check the fuses ,pull the ac relay make sure there is no water underneath,and the prongs are dry,if the blower fan in the vechile isnt working on 2,3,or 4 speed it wont let the ac turn on,if all that checks out ,turn the fan on high max ac unplug the green wires or wire on the compressor right behind the belt pulley,check for 12v dc,if none,you lost a relay or one of the pressure switches,fuse,maybe broken wire,if 12 v. is there,your clutch coil fried on the compressor pulley,good luck, hope you figure it out
