On that model,it will cycle on and off while you add freon.If it does not ,then the ac system might have a problem.The low side pressure switch is located on,or near the accumulator .Unplug the switch and take the wire end plug and connect the two plug in`s together(cross it out on the wire).This will make the ac compressor engage and you can charge the system,do not leave the wire connected,plug it back up to switch.If the ac compressor does not come on ,then have the system checked out.

Air conditioner won't work added freon changed low pressure switch compressor comes on when jumped across at low pressure switch just no cold air


The low pressure switch turns on appox 26 psi. If the pressure is lower than that, it wont work, you have a leak.

You need to check the freon level and if that is good check the compressor. If you have no pressure on the low side, when I say pressure on low side I mean vacuum, then most likely the compressor is bad or you have a leak someplace. You can get a freon fill kit at Walmart, Target, Auto Zone and most any auto parts stores. These kits comes with a gauge and connection hose. Typically if the freon is low the compressor won't activate. Connect the fill hose to the low Side of your AC and turn the AC on to Maximum with the engine running. If its a low freon problem the compressor will start to kick in as the pressure increases. Make sure you don't overfill the system as this will cause a seal or line to blow. Being a 1998 your vehicle should use R134A freon which is what can legally be purchased by a home mechanic. It cost about $12 to $20 a can and usually includes a leak detector additive and seal conditioner.

When i turn on my air conditioner in my 1999 durango it blows out hot air. can i put in antifreeze myself or do i need to take to the dealership?


Antifreeze is only for the radiator, does not affect the air conditioner, make sure you have the setting on cold, if it is still hot than take it to your local air conditioner re gas station, most auto electricians do it, dealerships usually send them out which you end up paying extra for!!! You just need a re gas in your air conditioner.

Air conditioner does not cool in 2000 Yukon.How do I check freon level and how to replace freon if need be


Get an r134a refrigerant add kit from Walmart or your local auto parts store.

You can even get a can of Arctic Freeze by Intermatics that has a hose and a gauge on it.

Connect the hose to the low side port. You can find this port on the 'thicker' piping that comes off of the compressor (versus the thinner piping that comes off the compressor which is the high pressure side).

Pressure should read 25 psi to 45 psi on the low pressure side when the compressor is running and the a/c is on.

Pressure should read 75 psi to 100 psi on a hot day when the car is off.

However, you'll want the a/c to be running when you add freon.

Press the button on the can to install more freon, if needed.

The air conditioner compressor on my 2000 S-10 would not run. I added 2 cans of 134a and changed the low pressure switch. Now the compressor will not cycle off and on and everything frost's up. The low...


Hi IM AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair

The cycling switch is what keeps the system from freezing up and comes in different forms for instance. Some vehicles is located inside the a/c housing close to or pushed inside the evaporator, on other vehicles it's the low pressure switch. NO, you do not have to much Freon because if you did the high side pressure would go well past 350 to 400 psi. I would google how to change the cycling switch on your vehicle and watch the video. Hope this helps and have an awesome day. AL with Big A's Auto Repair.

1995 j30 air conditioner just blows hot air. set to auto and no noise from compressor. happened all at once, working when car was shut off but not working when restarted. compressor going bad or a switch...


I would start with adding freon to system, from what you are stating freon is low. You may have a small leak, so use freon with leak seal, also use freon with gauge so you dont over fill and blow orings.

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.

that light goes on mostly likely cause you need freon. the compressor will not go on if there is no freon. buy a userfriendly can at autozone. put it in low pressure valve(blue)  if it works but no cold enough air check under your hood for the proper pounds or ounces needed of freon.  if it doesnt work its your compressor.  GOOD LUCK! :)
