Look for an AC clutch RELAY ... the low pressure switch often operates a relay that in turn provides current to the clutch .. you can probably get a diagram from the library .. there also may be a fuse for the clutch power ..

There are 3 likely problems:

  1. system could be air locked; when recharged, its possible more air than refrigerant was pumped into the system
  2. clogged or bad expansion valve
  3. AC clutch is bad; although it will engage when you jump it, the clutch could still be bad preventing it from engaging when you turn on the AC
Hope this answers your question. Best of luck.

Ac does not engage


Most vehicles have a low pressure switch that prevents the compressor from engaging so as to prevent damage to the compressor. You need to place a gauge set onto your AC to read the high and low sides of the system. Probably have lost enough gas(R134) over time to prevent the compressor from engaging. You can jump the pressure switch to check it with a simple jumper wire.

Put a jump wire in the high pressure switch plug. If the compressor works. replace the high pressure switch. Let me know and we can go from there.

I have an 2000 f-250 super duty and my a/c doesnt work i have checked all the fuses and had it checked to see if its was low all was good i was told their is no power going to the compressor any even...


I don't have color codes here but i know that in your ford there is a fuse link going to the compressor. It's closer to the compressor itself so I would pull the wires go From the compressor back until you come acroos it. It's not that far from the compressor so you should need to pull to many wires. I would guess that would be the problem since you did try jumping it at the pressure switch. I hope this helps and good luck.

2000 ford taurs a/c dont work it blows cold when i power up the compressor.its running 45 lbs on my gage on the low side.


Hi...
Perform the following basic Checks and Information
1. Check Drive Belts,If belt is intact proceed to the next step.
2. Check for Compressor Clutch Engagement - Turn the air conditioner to the "on" position and set controls to the coldest setting. Start the engine and allow to idle. Then open the hood and inspect the clutch at the front of the compressor, is it turning? "Engaged" if so, the system has enough refrigerant to activate. If the system is low on refrigerant it will not work properly. In this case an air conditioner recharge kit is needed to recharge the system. If the compressor clutch is not turning proceed to next step.
3. Inspect for Refrigerant Leaks
4. Check under dash panel and under hood power distribution center
5. Check Temperature Control Vents - The vents inside your car are controlled by a cable, electrical servo or vacuum servo. If the vent door is not functioning properly it will cause warm air from the heater to exit the vents. To check this start the car and allow the engine idle, next turn the blower motor speed on low, switch the temperature control from warm to cold while your ear is close to the vents. You should hear the door move inside the heater box as it swings from open to close. If not, inspect for a vacuum leak or a shorted motor in the servo, repair the leak or replace the servo motor.
Thanks
Smith

02 taurus won't move


Torque converter is locking up, common for this model. My wife's is doing the same, just changed filter, fluid, and added Lucas trans fix. Hope this works for a little bit, 2000-2500 to fix this if not.

Change a new air compressor but doesn't work


if you have no power the the clutch on the compressor check the low pressure switch on the receiver dryer if you have power there take a jumper wire and put it between the two wires in the female switch you should hear a click and the compressor will run dont let it run to long because you`ll need to find out if the low pressure switch is bad or if you do not have enough freon in the system.

Air suspension not working


on the passenger side inside the wheel well there is a high current relay for the air compressor it is a silver metal relay assy 4 wire plug two smaller wire are the relay power two larger wires are compressor feed. if you jump the two larger wires and the compressor works check the smaller wires for power and ground if ok the relay is bad. usually these relays go bad due to compressor drawing high current and usually need to be replaced
