That's exactly the problem. But the fault could very well be the electronic relay module that activates the clutch.

Before you go buying a clutch first check both the dash switch and the relay to ensure they're not the far less expensive problem.

A/C compressor spins, but why is there no cold air?


You may need a shop manual to get the wiring diagrams and test procedures.
The ac compressor gets power from several sources and those would need to be checked. The control on the dash, the low and high pressure switches, the relay, and so on.
If the compressor is ok, you should be able to jumper the clutch like you did and feel one line cold and the other line warm if freon is flowing thru the system.

A/C Cluch Spinning, Fluid Full, but No Cold Air


Many A/C compressors rely on a computer generated reset of data to perform properly. Check the gauges, while attempting to energize the system to see if the fluids are up to the proper levels. Too much pressure can also be caused by a blockage in the lines and thus leaking from the valves. When filling with Freon, it is important to do a full Vacuum of the system to prevent air locks, and false readings on the gauges.

A/c blows hot air


Not sure what you mean by diode slot empty.
Have you checked to see if the system is full of freon ?
If yes, then you would check for voltage at the compressor relay and then the compressor clutch.

MY AC COMES ON BUT DOESNT BLOW. COULD IT BE A RELAY FUSE AND WHERE IS IT AT?


COULD BE MULTIPLE PROBLEMS...LOW FREON = NOT COLD..BAD COMPRESSOR =NOT COLD=LEAK IN 1 OR MORE HOSES OR EVAPORATER OR CONDENSER =LOW FREON =NOT COLD.SO WHAT IM GETTING AT IS LOTS OF POSSIBLITIES,IF IT HAS THE PROPER AMOUNT OF FREON IN IT YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO SEE IF THE CLUTCH IS SPINNING ON THE COMPRESSOR.CHECK ALL THAT I WOULD SAY TO PUT SOME FREON IN IT BUT IF YOU PUT TOO MUCH YOU COULD DAMAGE THE SEALS AND =NOT COLD FOR GOOD.THANKS AND GOOD LUCK.

My 2002 neon's A/C blows warm air. The vent pressure is working well- but it blows warmer than the outside air. Can I fix this myself? What might the problem be?


If you are handy, yes you can. Most likely causes are loss of freon which would prevent the compressor clutch from being engaged and operating the compressor, a lack of 12 volts being applied to the compressor clutch because the a/c compressor fuse or relay has failed, preventing the clutch from engaging the compressor, or the compressor clutch itself failing. Easy test is to watch the compressor pulley with the motor running. The pulley will, of course be spinning, but the circular assembly mounted to the front of the pulley will spin with the pulley only when the compressor is engaged. There is a sensor mounted to the a/c line that prevents the clutch from engaging the compressor if there in not enough freon in the system. You could go to auto zone or checker and buy a can of freon r-134 with a hose for around $15.00. It is fairly easy to follow the instructions to charge the system. If, after allowing some of the can to pressurize the system, the compressor clutch engages then you can continue to charge the system. Cold air should start to blow by the time the can is empty. Or you can locate the a/c relay located in the fuse panel, remove its plastic cover and manually close the contacts while observing the compressor pulley assembly. If the clutch doesn't engage then the problem in probably electrical, a fuse, the relay or the electric clutch itself. Go to auto zone and check you their dvd on a/c repair for under $9.00. Hope this helps! Dano

2002 Chevy Express 1500. A/C Full of freon, fan blows hot air and not cold at all. What can it be?


check all fuses first. does ac compressor come on? if not, unplug pressure switch in low pressure line near where you add freon and short across pigtail. comes on now and cools? replace switch. if not plug back in. apply manual voltage to ac compressor. comes on and cools? if not compressor or clutch is bad. if it does, check ac relay. that's about all you can do with limited tools in the driveway. if no progress has been made, time to take it to the pros.

My A/C will not blow cold on 2002 jetta 1.8t


The problem is the temperature blend door. Very costly to fix. I have a 2003 with the same problem. A diverter flap door that allows it to switch over from heat to air, is broken. The part is 400.00 and the labor itself is 800.00. The whole dash needs to come off. Everything is behind the dash. Sorry!

Acura integra 96 Air Conditioner compressor did not run


Check the A.C>Relay or It could be low or leaking freon

Screeching noise, then a/c stops blowing cold air. Still blows air, just not cold air.


it could be the air conditioning clutch going out. to check turn your car on and idle it with ac on and hood open. at the ac compressor it will have a pulley on it with a clutch that engages when the air conditioning is on. if it engages and disengages it can be the clutch itself has gone bad, the ac clutch will also disengage if there is not enough freon in the ac system, will also engage and disengage if the pressure gets too high in the ac system. Depending on the year of the vehicle it will disengage at full throttle and come back on when you are not at full throttle.
If it is a metallic sounding screech for example take a coke can and drag it across pavement kind of sound it could be a bad compressor or a bad ac clutch. If it is a more rubbery sound for example a car spinning its tires kind of noise it could be a loose belt.

1. Check to make sure all belts are tight under hood
2. start car and look at ac compressor to make sure compressor pulley is turning and that the fan clutch is engaged spinning
