Question about 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser
If you can hear or see the compressor operating, change the thermostat and ensure there's sufficient coolant in the system. If the compressor will not operate when you turn on the air conditioner, you most likely have a leak in the system and have lost sufficient refrigerant to operate it. Most compressors need a minimun of 20lbs of pressure to operate. A lack of refrigerant will prevent the compressor from operating as a protective measure. Although it's possible to recharge the system yourself (products are available to both diagnose the leak and recharge the system) if you're unfamiliar or uncomfortable with doing it yourself, it should be serviced at an authorized service station that does AC work.
