Question about 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
I have changed more low pressure switches than high pressure. You can jump the connection for the LOW pressure switch while the engine is running. Do this after the Compressor has cut off and if the Compressor starts again, it will be immediate. Then you have to determine if it is the switch or low Freon.
If you do not have gauges, see if Autozone or Oreillys have loaners. If no gauge try a new LOW pressure switch. Also ask the Parts guys if you have a Thermal switch for the Compressor. The old models would just blow like a fuse, but the newer ones may reset. If the Thermal is causing problems you need a can of Oil Charge especially if the Compressor was getting noisy. This caused extra heat and tripped the Thermal.
If the new Low pressure switch does not help, your Freon must be low or you have the Thermal problem I mentioned. Freon pressure is directly related to outside air temperature. As the Freon circulates it changes from gas to liquid. This change will explain why you start out with pressure and it works, then cuts off when it is starved. Be patient and go step by step and you will track down the problem with the least expense.
