Question about 1996 Ford Taurus
I have a 1996 Ford Taurus. The ac compressor won't come on. Is there anything else that might possibly cause this other than a faulty compressor.
Hi, yes there is a high low pressure switch in the a/c circuit which is a safety switch for the system, if the a/c gas has leaked and dropped a bit of pressure this switch will prevent the compressor from activating as the gas also is a lubricant for the compressor and prevents/ saves a major failure. Take it to a a/c service centre and they should be able to tell you quickly if this is the case, it would be a simple regas and leak fix, this symptom is the most common I have seen. Good luck and have a nice day.

The clutch?? no gas will stop it from working or the clutch itself ,run a wire direct to test it
