You need to have both the high and low sides checked before we begin. Compressors can fail and passages can become plugged. About the only thing you can do is look at the compressor to see if the clutch engaged when turned on. If it doesnt then most likely the AC relay or PCM is the problem if its an electrical problem. Or you have low pressure, or a AC pressure sensor is defective.
A quick check with a bidirectional data scanner can check to see if the PCM has the ability to turn the AC on. If it will turn on with a scanner then the pressures or sensors are most likley the problem.

    THE COMPRESSOR WOULD NOT ENGAGE WHILE I WATCHED IT WHEN THE TEMP WAS 100 DEGREES. NOW IN THE 90 DEGREES WEATHER THE CLUTCH WILL ENGAGE

    IF THE AC SYSTEM IS WORKING PROPERLY WILL THE CUTCH ENGAGE WHEN THE AC IS TURNED ON ANY TIME

  • atdgld Jul 10, 2010

    IF OUTSIDE TEMPS RISE TO 100 DEGREES , WILL THIS KEEP A NORMAL RUNNING AC SYSTEMS FROM WORKING

    Unless the car has another issue it should still work at any temperature. If the car has something else not AC related going on the AC can be commanded not to work in order not to stress the engine. If this is the case you will need a professional diag to get to the bottom of this.

Nissan 2000 ac hot when idle


the a/c condenser has a fan in front ( there is actually 2 fans if you sit on the car it will be fan on right side ) if this fan does not
come on immediately when you are parked and engine in idle
there is a problem with power to it, or motor failure. If you drive it
on the highway and a/c operates fine that's because air is circulating though condenser (thats what the fan is supposed to do at idle or slow traffic)
