you will need new radiator fans if your car heats up to past half way on the temp guage and the fans do not kick in.

SOURCE: ac compressor clutch relay 1991 honda accord

Difficult to describe, but I will give it a try.
Inside the driver's side fender, close to the front of the car, there is a bracket that is held in place by one bolt, but which has a short horizontal bar as part of it which has two large clips encircling two cylinderical devices which have wires clipped into them at the bottoms. The one closest to the front (radiator) is the compressor clutch relay. The other one is the condenser fan relay.
Hope this helps you find it.

It sounds like the A/C compressor clutch is shorted. You will need to have the clutch and / or the complete compressor replaced.

2002 Honda cr-v ac compressor clutch won't engage, and the clutch coil has no electrical continuty. Can the coil / brushes be replaced without replacing the entire compressor?

you change the clutch on the end with no problem ,just the nut in the middle then underneath is some more bolts if i remember correctly ,i had two of these clutches laying around and i would have sent you both as they worked but i had a clear up about a week ago and threw them in the scrap bin.same model with a 4 cyl engine and the compressor had a snail cam type mechanism to pressure up the gas which is not a very good system as they wear out too quick and they are over a 1000euros and only available from honda .

After i put the ac on my bmw x5 2003 get over heat and smell burn

pls. check your ac compressor magnetic clutch attached in front of ur compressor if its working/ ac clutch engage when u turn the ac switch on and disengage when u turn the ac switch off/ it normally makes a clacking sound when it engage with the rotation of ur compressor/ if its not engaging it means ur magnetic clutch is stuck up giving excessive load to ur engine thats why it overheats/ it smell burnt because its magnetic coil is fried/ or check cooling system of ur car might be that coolant is empty/ fan is not working/ radiator is clogged or thermostatic valve is stuck blocking coolant flow....

Could be the flap that directs the air flow. Are you getting air flow to all vents? The flap is inside the venting and controlled by a vacuum operated actuator.

Ac not throwing sufficient cold air

I would try recharging the system. if the recharge doesn't produce could air, this will confirm a compressor failure.Inspect the clutch function. the AC clutch should click when it is engaging the compressors actions.

1997 honda accord 4 cyl auto ac compressor makes noise when you first take off and when you slow down and take off again,is it the clutches going bad?

it could be a bearing going bad, i had the same problem in my ford focus with noises then a week later the bearing locked up, go get it checked ASAP to avoid an $800+ repair bill. it could be low on oil and freon, it probably needs to be flushed out and new oil put in and new freon as well.

AC problem

Sounds like the bearing and clutch went out. Its best to replace the compressor, unless you got the tools and knowhow to chg. the clutch and bearing. If you just chg. out the compressor, the refregerent has to be drained out first, and then unbolt lines on back of compressor, and electrical wires, and belt, and bolts then remove. Put new compressor on in reverse order. But system should be vacumed be for its recharged with refregerent.
