Hi
If the air compressor is new and its within warrenty period,its suggested to contact the dealer or the manufacturer rather than trying your hand on it and causing inner damage or wiring fault by your own.

Let us know if you want to know something more else please accept the suggestion.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com

I would be assuming and I hate to assume

are you talking about the clutch?
there are actually 3 or 4 different compressors for this vehicle
does yours look like this?

    Actually not the clutch. There are three wires on top of the old compreesor and one wire goes from compressor to the clutch and the other wire is connected to the nissan. The other wire is connected the the compressor to a ball shaped connection. Compressor is a CALSONIC PART# 92600 060-084-0040 506021-4290 Type DKV14C. Sure wish I can send a picture.

    sounds like you have this compressor


    therefore I suspect you got the wrong part!!!!




  • Cesar Martinez May 31, 2010

    That is correct compressor exactly as the OEM. If you can see there are wires on top of the compressor. How can I take those connectors out and place them on the new one? Since the new compressor came without them. Below is a link to compressor.

    I believe they are called ORIGINAL COIL PLUGS OR SENSORS, CONNECTORS & MANIFOLDS

    looks more like the thermo protection switch

    while I could not find any information on removal or installation of the switch and I could not find any torque specs therefore based on the picture I suspect it just twists out

What connectors? You will need to do more than just "put the compressor on" like replace the drier, evacuate and recharge with the correct amount of r134

Bought reconstructed a/c compressor for my 98 nissan altima. But did not come with connections. How do I change the connections from the old to the new?


The old pipes should fit right in the new holes and bolt right up. If they don't, you have the wrong compressor. It should be exactly what you took out. If it isn't, you won't have to worry about hooking it up because it probably won't fit. Check it out.

1997 nissan altima a/c is blowing hot air,will not hold replacement can of coolant


You mean freon, not coolant. You have a leak somewhere, check the A/C lines, check condensor for leaks, broken tubes, check compressor.

1998 Nissan Altima -Trying to check and see if the clutch on the compressor is or isn't kicking on. On my GMC the pressure switch on the Accumulator is 2 wire and easy to bypass. The Nissan has 4 wires,...


Using a power probe or a test light, you have to check to see if you have power running to the clutch first. If yes, then the wire to the clutch is usually grounded to the compressor itself, so you find it by working backwards from the ground. Hope this helps.
