The reason its not is because you need to get the compressior to turn so your low preasure switch needs to be shorted across to get the compressor to take freon then just hook up your low preasure switch back up and you will be just fine, I hope the helps you and have a merry x mas

Ac problems

well,i'm in the same boat."fixed income"... BUT! if you have to keep the car instead of takin out a cheap car loan like i had to. I can tell ya, if the c-box isn't getting continuity,[check on firewall] on olds pre 2001. If you are, than the compresser needs to be purged,there is an air bubble in there that's a pain in the **** to get out. "GOOD LUCK''

Dear Friends, I have 2003 Lancer GLXI , I have a problem mention below When Engine and AC are started there is a vibrating noise of the bonnet. One local mechanic said its ECM problem. Car does not...

ECM - electronic control module? Maybe, but there are other issues to be checked first.

You AC is clearly not functioning.

The vibration when the AC is on may be the AC belt idler pulley, or perhaps the compressor clutch.
This is easily checked. The belt can be loosened, and the idler pulley checked for free rotation. At the same time, (engine off) the compressor pulley should be easily rotated. The compressor clutch is controlled by the thick single wire that runs to the compressor. Locate the connector to the main wiring loom and disconnect it.

Run a wire from the battery to the clutch wire. You should hear a load click as the compressor clutch engages. You should be able to rotate the compressor pulley, but there will be a significant load resistance. If the compressor seems jammed, then I'd suspect it has a serious problem.

There's a High pressure A/C valve some where near the front of the car. The cap is probably light blue. Press the valve inside momentarily. If you hear a loud psssttt, the AC pressure is probably OK. If you get a soft sssss sound, you've lost pressure. The usual reason is age or pin holes in the condensor in front of the radiator.

I have a 1995 pontiac Bonneville compressor is locked up and broke the serpentine belt need to fix please help thanks Ron

Most cars have an option to buy a belt for a car with or without Air Conditioning. I would check first if your car offers that option (then if you don't need AC you can just buy the other belt and not have to fix the compressor). If you need AC you will have to buy a new compressor (local junkyard is your cheapest bet). I would have a mechanic install either the new belt (to make sure no other pulleys were bent when the belt snapped) or the compressor (some AC lines can be difficult or dangerous to repair or replace). Good Luck!

Installed new air conditioning compressor in 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix - how much compressor oil do I need to put in?

If you have not cleaned out the ac system,the ac system will have oil in it,but,the compressor most likely does not have any in it,so pour about 4 to 5 oz in the low side opening on the compressor before installing it,and turn the center nut of the compressor clutch about 8 to 10 times,oil will try and come out the high side,when it does,this will be enough turning.If the system needs more oil,add as needed when freon is put in the system.If the oil is not added to the ac compressor before installing,the compressor could be damaged.Please rate if this was helpful,thank you.
