My air condition work only when I hot wire the compressor clutch. Otherwise it not engaging when I turn on the ac.

You have to insert a can of R134A refrigerant and hose on the low pressure port.
Normally it is the fatter of the two hoses coming from the compre3ssor.It should then kick in with the A/C switch engaged.
If not you may have a bad fuse,switch,compressor,or relay.

Air conditioner

turn your key on and your air on and see if you have power to the compressor clutch, if yes needs new compressor, if no check pressure switch/ switches. usually screwed into accumulator. Make sure there is power to switch and then put jumper wire in plug to see if that kicks compressor in, if yes the get new switch if no power to switch trace wires and look for a rub/break in wire. if there is power and you jump switch and compressor still has no power to it then keep tracing wires. If harness is good check for power coming out of control panel in the dash. this is just basic troubleshooting, npt specific for your escort.

A/C Compressor won't turn on Can jump compressor from battery and compressor comes on & cools. Hi pressure switch checks out ok and 12 volts going to hi pressure switch no voltage to compressor

the high pressure switch kicks the compressor off when the pressure rises, the low pressure switch kicks it on, check that switch, unplug the wire and use a continuity meter to see if the switch functions, also check for power getting to the plug itself

I have a 2001 Cavalier Coupe, I am having problems with the air condition. Freon was added, that evening the air condition started to work. The next day, I turned on the air condition, no cold air. I was...

There is a power distrobution box under the hood containing relays and a few heavy duty fuses.
I'd take the cover off and find the A/C relay usually depicted in the diagram inside the cover.
Start the car, turn the A/C switch on and then under hood at A/C relay give it a light tap with the handle of a screwdriver to see if compressor clutch on compressor "kicks on".
Relay can even be pulled out and put back in to make a better connection.
I'm betting the problem is that relay...or dirty contacts.

Hope this helps...

Air condition compressor will not come on what could cause have checked low and high pressure switches

If the A/C compressor does not come on, the compressor clutch is not getting power or the freon level is too low. Reasons for no power include blown A/C fuse, bad switch on console, bad solenoid on compressor. I would check the fuse first. If that's ok, next check for power at the compressor with a test light or volt meter. Next, try to jump power to the solenoid to get it to pull in. Do yourself a favor, and get a schematic for the car. It will make it easier to trace out the wires and find the problem. You can check out repair manuals from the library and copy the schematic from the manual.

Air condition and fan dont work

If all fuses are ok then check wiring to fan and compressor both, if wiring is also ok and current is passed till the terminals then you have two problems, one the magnet forming coil on the compressor head is burnt, you have to replace or get it repaired. second your fan itself needs checking.

Temp fan failure could be the thermo temperature sensor. I am not sure of the actual name of it but if you can direct wire your fan and it works, then the fan is good, the sensor is bad. I myself have rewired a switch to them so I can control when and how long the electric fan runs.

It may be low on refrigerant if the pressures are to low, the compressor will not engage.

Air condition compressor won;t kick in

Most likely a loss of refrigerant ( freon ) in the system. The A/C compressor uses a low pressure switch as a SAFETY to insure it wont turn on without freon in the system. Hope this helps.

A/c wont come on

have the system charge checked, the system waring is activated by this condition in most cases, u can confirm that by putting a jumper wire across the low pressure AC compressor cycling switch located in the low pressure line from the compressor near the accumulator.
