Hi. It sounds like it is low on gas and it needs re-gassing.

A/C compressor is engaged even when turned off inside. battery also is being drained when car is not running.


Unplug the power lead from the AC compressor.If it stays locked up it a mechanical issue with the new Clutch. If it unlocks check the following. Look at the AC Relay. If it has fused or failed in the closed position the ac clutch will remain engaged. As I don't have the vehicle details I can't provide further details

Initial start up the engine sounds like its running on 2 cylinders under powered intil the temp gauge reads normal ???? any body got the answer please


Cold starting misfires can often be caused by either tired high tension spark plug leads or ignition coil packs. If replacing leads, then replace with a full, new set. Coils can be changed individually, but it is often the case that if one has failed, then the others aren't far behind. Some cars have individual coil packs on each spark plug. Some cars have a single pack for all plugs and some have coil packs which may control two or more plugs.

To check for a misfire (ignition failure) follow these steps:

(Cold start) (Use a pair of insulated pliers)

1) Start the vehicle

2) When the vehicle starts misfiring, disconnect plug leads or coil pack connections one at a time. If the vehicle idles even more roughly, then that plug or pack should be considered fine.
Replug each connection before disconnecting the next one. Once you disconnect a plug lead or coil pack connection and find no difference in poor engine running, then you have likely found the offending cylinder. Check the spark plug condition, lead and/or coil condition and connections on that cylinder.

3) Replace components as necessary.

I have a 1998 chevy cavalier, I was driing and the AC was working. I stopped and when I started teh car again a couple hours latter the AC was not working. The fuses are good and the comressor and dryer...


Did you check the AC relay? Usually located under the hood, try swapping it with another relay with the same part number that isn't required to run the vehicle. If the AC now works, then replace the relay. If not , then verify compressor operation. With the engine running, watch the compressor clutch while someone else turns on the AC control. The clutch should engage and begin to run. If not, then find the pressure cycling switch usually located on the accumulator. Disconnect the harness and jumper the contacts. With the engine off and the key turned on , turn the AC control on. You should now be able to watch the clutch engage and disengage by removing and replacing the jumper lead. If it does, then replace the switch. I hope this information is helpful. Thanks for trying Fixya.

I would take it back to whoever replaced the module however, if you want to check for the problem yourself, Look for the AC compressor. with the AC turned off have someone start the vehicle, while watching the AC compressor have the person in the vehicle turn the AC on. If the clutch engages then you have lost your freon charge and need to have the AC unit serviced. If it does not start turn the engine off and check all the wiring connections going to the AC compressor. If all the connections are good start the vehicle, and have the person in the vehicle turn the control to cold and turn on the defroster. If the AC clutch engages then you have a bad ECM module or mis-programmed ECM take it back to be Properly programmed and repaired. If the clutch does not engage it is possible the AC compressor is bad. Take the vehicle to the Mechanic to have teh AC system checked to see why it is not engaging.

Air conditioning won't engage


To reset your AC compressor, you need to remove power for at least 15 minutes. After you reconnect, the compressor should turn on. If it does, immediately turn to high and try to add refrigerant. Best of luck.

In my 1990 Cadillac Deville there is a sticker that says that one can reset the computer that controls the compressor by disconnecting the battery for a few minutes and reconnecting.

Did you disconnect the battery to reset the a/c system?

The symptoms you are describing lead me to believe that there is a safety feature that prevents the compressor from engaging when the compressor has been run for any length of time without at least .5 lbs. of freon in the system.

You said that you had to run a hot wire to charge it up with freon. But, if you ran it without freon, it may have automatically invoked the 'safety' feature.

I have seen this happen on my 1990 cadillac. I haven't had any problems on my 1997 Cadillac Limousine, because I never had a low charge on that car.
