First of all check the fuse/relay panel under the hood for a blown fuse or bad a/c relay. If all is good there,then start the truck,turn on the a/c control with the fan on. Go to the outside on the passenger side of truck,look on the a/c line next to the accumilator and you will see a pressure switch with two wires connected to it. Unplug the switch and install a short jumper wire into switch. If the compressor clutch comes on then it's telling you that the system is low on freon. If not possible cause would be defective switch or the compressor clutch is bad. replace items as needed. hope this will help.

Hi, My guess you have a bad relay. The relay makes the clutch engage. Replace it.

Hearing water gurgling sounds in the cab


I have an 04 Ram and have heard the same sound. Mine is actually refrigerant gurgling when I have had it on defrost. When defrost is used the air conditioning compressor cycles. They do this so oil will be circulated through the compressor during winter months. Keeps the clutch and everything working and keeps seals from drying out.

Check system for freon, does compressor clutch have power to it? first off check all fuses for power on both sides of terminals, check for power at a/c relay and check relay (you can do this by using another relay from like the horn to see if the a/c one is good) then unplug compressor clutch connector start vehicle and with test light see if connector on vehicle side has power on one side of connector. if so then jumper wire from one side to the oter and see if compressor runs
