You can jumper the low presser switch to in gage the clutch until you have enough freon in the a/c unit to keep the Freon low presser switch in gaged.hope this helps.

Are you trying to charge the system with the engine running? the compressor will not engage because there is no refrigerant in the system - you need to charge it before the clutch will engage.

New ac compressor, not accepting freon, not engaging


IF this was a DIY job then I have to ask if you evacuated the system and or did you have isolation valves on the compressor? Are they open?
If you have the valves then you dont have to evac the system if it did not go all the way empty. Short of that are you putting freon in the high or low side? Did you bypass the low cutoff to see if the compressor is going to engage? Did you replace the oil? The receiver dryer?

My air conditioning began making a rythmic squeaking noise when the AC was on. It has now quit blowing out of the front vents. It works on the feet, defrost vents and in the rear air. What could this be??


  1. Air conditioner system is discharged. Have the system evacuated, charged and leak tested by an MVAC certified technician, utilizing approved recovery/recycling equipment. Repair as necessary.
  2. Air conditioner compressor clutch not engaging. Check compressor clutch wiring, electrical connections and compressor clutch, and repair or replace as necessary.

Not getting power to the a/c compressor to kick on the clutch. what could be causing that.


If freon is low, AC will not engage. There's a low pressure safety switch incorporated in compressor so it doesn't burn up under low pressure condition. Have system evacuated, refill w/oil & freon

I replaced an AC clutch. I tested it with lead wires, it engages. When I plug it in with the AC on it will not engage. I have 13 volts to the plug with AC on. what would keep the clutch from engaging if I...


Hi

Here to understand why it’s not engaging first check the electric system, fuses, circuit breaker, and connection to the clutch assembly. Chances are your refrigerant level is low and the low pressure cut out switch is preventing the clutch from engaging in order to protect the compressor. You can jump across the terminals at the overload fuse to check operation of the clutch but only for a short period of time in case your system is low on oil. Evacuate and recharge the system to resolve the issue.

Let us know if you want to know something else accept the suggestion.

Change ac compressor on ford f150


First, why are you changing the A/C compressor? The most common problem is the clutch that goes bad and won't engage. It's a magnet and they get rusty and needs to be changed. If it's just not working it could just be low on freon. A comp. won't engage if the pressure is too low. You need to "jump" the sensor with a wire to make it kick in to refill the system. Another thing is that the system is under pressure, so when you unhook the lines freon blows out into the air which is against the law. It needs to be evacuated with a special machine.(By a qualified repair shop)

When your R-134a runs too low it will NOT engage the compressor. You need to refill your a/c system before the clutch will engage, I also suggest finding the leak.

The ac light starts flashing when i begin to refill the system. I replaced the compressor, dryer, evaporator, expansion valve, and pressure switch that connects to the same piping. It is my understanding...


usually you have to have these ac systems vacumed while refilling, also you could have a bad compressor, even if it is new, friend of mine has this same car, bought new comp from autozone, basically same problem you are having, check with auto parts to see exactally how much comp oil is needed and freon, you may have to much freon in it.

Ac compressor will not engage when ac is on. System seems to be full of gas. Quit without warning. This is on a 2003 Nissan Altima with 2.5L. Secondary fan does come on when AC is switched on.


Check A/C compressor relay. When you say it seems to be full of gas(freon) have you actually put a pressure gauge on the system? If the pressure is too low, the compressor will not engage. If the compressor relay is functioning, check for power at the compressor clutch. If it has power to it and it still is not engaging, the A/C clutch may need replacing. It is usually almost as economical to replace the complete compressor with clutch installed than to just purchase a clutch. Keep in mind if you replace the compressor you should also replace the receiver/dryer also referred to as the accumulator.
