Look at compr, the belt pulley will always turn with engine on, the front plate of the compr is the clutch, should all spin as on when compr. is on.

Smoking belt


Not knowing if you have a single serpentine belt or separate belt for the AC compressor, this is most likely the compressor bearings out. If the belt is smoking, and it has its own AC compressor belt I would recommend cutting the belt off so it does not break and cause other damage under the hood.

AC COMPRESSOR


Someone would need to check and see if the system is full of freon, and if you have power at the ac compressor clutch.
And the sending unit in the gas tank would need to be checked to diagnose the fuel gauge. The sending unit gets voltage from the gauge on the dash and provides the ground for the gauge.

Belt broke on 2000 chrylser convertible ac compressor froze i need diagram to show how to bypass it


I don't think you can bypass the compressor.
Chrysler would have to build a model without ac and as far as I know they all have ac.
When they do have an engine without ac they usually have an idler pulley to take the place of the compressor.
Re-routing the belt runs the risk of turning the alternator or water pump in the wrong direction.

I ust had the water pump replaced. Now my ac has gone out. I know nothing about cars but I do know that I hear a strange noise and the front part of the ac unit was turning and now it's not. It seems...


It is unlikely that the replacement of the water pump and AC failing are related, however ensure that the V belt is correctly positioned and under tension. The AC pulley should be spinning continuously by the V belt. The AC compressor is engaged by an electrically operated clutch within/behind the pulley wheel. If the pulley wheel is not spinning but the belt is sliding over it then you have a seized AC compressor and this will most probably need replacing. If the wheel is spinning but the AC compressor is not working (no cooling) then it is the clutch that is not engaging. This could be due to a worn clutch, failed clutch actuator, broken electrical connection, failed relay, broken fuse a failed interior thermostat (the car thinks that the 'set' temperature has been reached and so switches the AC off). To check, put the AC on the lowest setting and test the voltage at the AC compressor connection. If voltage is being supplied it is likely to be a failed AC clutch. There are lots of AC clutch repair videos on youtube and these should be a great help.

Sounds like the some issue I have with my Mom's 96 Cav. No Cmprsr


I would check the freon level in the AC system. The computer looks at the voltage from the pressure switch in order to activate the compressor clutch. If the voltage is not in the right range the computer will not turn on the compressor and in turn will not turn on the cooling fan. It is set up this way in order to prevent damage to the AC compressor. I would almost bet that the system is low and may have a small leak. Your local mechanic can check it for you and correct the charge level as needed.

1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder A/C Only Blows Hot Air


I would take it back to whoever replaced the module however, if you want to check for the problem yourself, Look for the AC compressor. with the AC turned off have someone start the vehicle, while watching the AC compressor have the person in the vehicle turn the AC on. If the clutch engages then you have lost your freon charge and need to have the AC unit serviced. If it does not start turn the engine off and check all the wiring connections going to the AC compressor. If all the connections are good start the vehicle, and have the person in the vehicle turn the control to cold and turn on the defroster. If the AC clutch engages then you have a bad ECM module or mis-programmed ECM take it back to be Properly programmed and repaired. If the clutch does not engage it is possible the AC compressor is bad. Take the vehicle to the Mechanic to have teh AC system checked to see why it is not engaging.

The AC is not cooling and when I check the clutch on the compressor it isn't engaging and turning the compressor.


You must of lost freon and when there is no freon your clutch will not activate.Must check it for pressure in the lines.If there is pressure check pressure switch.Good luck let me know
