Question about 2000 Cadillac Eldorado

1 Answer

My 2000 eldorado low refrigerant warning came on-I tried to hook a can of 134a up but it woudn't take it---the compressor didn't kick in-is there a sensor/switch you have to reset so that it will kick in? The car has 75,000 I tried to run the defrosters to see if the compressor would kick but no luck--

Because improper use of refrigerants, polute the atmosphere and hardly anyone has A/C training and the proper equipment to work on automobiles, I only recommend ,you take it to a repair shop.
Some people here will help you, but when you lack auto technology and refrigerant knowledge, any help you get will not be of much use. It is a steep learning curve, to work on todays high tech vehicles

    you have to first disconnect on cable from the battery and then with key on put your foot on the brake for 4 mins, that will reset your ac to kick the comp. back on to fill it. took me forever to figure that out and the dealer will not tell ya but will charge you both legs to do it! insane but it works! promise I have the same car and just did mine 2 weeks ago.

1993 Eldorado Cadillac ac compressor won't take freon. Display says compressor off, low refrigerant. How to bypass computer? Can compressor relay be jumped using paper clip? Which holes? to


Grab some refrigerant gauges and take readings. If the low side has more than 40 psi or so of pressure, the low limit switch will close and allow the compressor to run. If there is indeed low pressure causing the compressor not to run, you will need to flush the system after eliminating the source of the leak. If the a/c compressor has never been changed, it is probably the source of the leak.

First thing is have the AC charge checked by a shop, if that is OK then the AC compressor low side pressure switch may be defective or the compressor relay is defective.

NOPE STOP CHARGING DONT PUT NO MORE REFRIGERANT IN SYSTEM.DO GOING TO DAMAGE NEW COMPRESSOR AND THE EXCESS PRESSURE WILL BUILD UP CAUSE THE REFRIGERANT CANISTER TO BURST EXPLODE INJURY OR FATALLY HURT YOU. BEST TAKE CAR TO A GARAGE.LET GARAGE PUMP DOWN AC SYSTEM AND CHARGE UP.BECAUSE YOU WILL DAMAGE NEW COMPRESSOR. MOST OF TIME I WILL HOT WIRE THE AC COMPRESSOR. MAKE SURE COMPRESSOR HAS 2 OUNCES OIL IN IT.IF COMPRESSOR START UP NO OIL IT WILL LOCK UP.DONT KEEP PUTTING REFRIGERANT IN THE AC SYSTEM, THE R 134A GOING TO FREEZE UP TOO MUCH MOISTURE IN SYSTEM YOU HAVE TO HAVE A VACUUM PUMP TO PUMP DOWN AC SYSTEM CHECK FOR LEAKS BEFORE CHARGING SYSTEM UP.LOW SIDE NEED TO BE 31 - 36 PSI THE HIGH SIDE SHOULD BE 165 - 205 PSI.

The A/C system is most likely low on refrigerant. A pressure switch will disengage the clutch on the compressor if it drops below a certain point. The compressor will not need to be removed for conversion to 134A. The conversion kits are available at most automotive retailers in addition to leak detecting and fixing agents which can be introduced into the system. It is very important to identify the low pressure access point in order to use these products and read all the safety warnings before attempting this on your own.

it is the low pressure switch trying to save the compressor. the system is low on refrigant. on this ford it should be R-134a all new cars are that refrigant.

you should be adding the 134a to the system the low pressure switch is doing its job by not allowing the compressor to kick on, it wont kick on until there is enough 134a in the system to be above the preset pressure for the low pressure switch.

1999 volkswagen beetle , a/c blow a little air on low speed when changed to higher speed compressor kicks off and vent fan only have checked fuses they are fine any help


Your a/c gas (134a) is too low, there is a safety feature for the a/c compressor to "kick off" if that gas (134a) is too low thus saving your a/c compressor from seizing up. Have a garage check to see how much is in the a/c system they can easily recharge the system for you. Keep in mind this is the simplest fix and most common problem from what you described.
