The clutch on the ac compressor of my '96 Jeep grand cherokee engages for about 5-10 seconds then disengages for another 5-10 secs. Any idea on what causes this?

Have your freon pressure checked out, more then likely low on freon, low pressure switch will cut a/c compr off, when not enough freon pressure, or it will damage the compr.

Ac doesn/t blow cold air


There could be a leak in your a/c system. Does your a/c compressor engage when the a/c is turned on? To check, locate the compressor, its a big cylinder on the serpentine belt, you should see the wheel engage(spin) and disengage(stop) when the a/c is activated. If it doesn't move, then your compressor is bad. If it does move, then there is a leak in the system that will need to be repaired.

The AC compressor looks like this:

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee. AC problem. Fan and inside controls have power but compressor clutch not engaging. I am thinking that there may be a relay that is out. Any suggestions for troubleshooting...


The compressor clutch won't engage unless there is freon in the system. Connecting a gauge to the low pressure port should tell you if there is. Pressure in a system that isn't running varies with the outside temperature.

It sounds like the bearing in the compressor or the clutch in the compressor either way changing the compressor should fix your problem.

97 Jeep Grand Cherokee A/C compressor clutch will not engage.


the fuse for ac is under the hood. the lid usually when you flip them open on that tell you what is what. if fuse is good you may have just lost enough freon to keep compressor from kicking in.

No cold air for a.c.


Well Bruno it sounds like you lost freon from your a/c system.The cabin filter wont restrict you from getting cold air.Check that your a/c clutch engages when you turn it on.if it dont you need freon and have to check for leaks

2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Ltd 4.0L A/C problems


this is most likely a a lack of r-134a (as freon is no longer used), if your system is completely out or close to it then the pressure sensor will not allow the compressor clutch to engage, it is also possible that there is an electrical issue but less likely. to know for sure you need to put some gauges on the system
