Location of the Ac low pressure switch 2007 Mkz


The low pressure switch (also known as the AC compressor switch) will be under the hood, it will be located in the low side AC line from the AC compressor, this is the larger of the two lines from the AC compressor. See picture below, looks like it has a three wire connector. Also what is the AC doing that makes you think this switch is defective? Cycling on and off constantly?

Where exactly is the high pressure switch located...my A/C is blowing warm air...I jumped the low pressure switch on the accumulator and the compressor cuts out at 40...on the gauges...


If the high side switch was bad, the compressor would come on at all. The low side is only on with the compressor running. You need a set( high and low) gauges on it to determine the problem.

High and low pressure switches


The high pressure switch is usually located on the a/c compressor. If pressure gets to high on the high side the switch will open and turn off the a/c compressor. It is a normally closed switch. The low pressure switch is usually located on the lager of the two lines, or on/near the accumulator (also known as the receiver drier). It's function is to turn off the a/c compressor if pressure gets to low. It is a normally open switch that requires a minimum pressure in order to close.

Hot air blows out wen ac is switched on how do i re fill ac unitif that is the problemb


You can buy the connector with a gauge and insructions to the low side at any store that sells auto parts and 134a refrigerant. The low side valve is located right on the front of the compressor. The low side connector will only connect to the low side port as the high side is a different size.

Where are all the ac switches and relays located


Check the low pressure switch,it is on the dryer or on the low side line,the large ac line,this can be the problem,try jumping the two wires that are plugged into the switch.If the freon is low,or out,this switch will not allow the ac compressor to come on.

Where can i find the Low pressure switch on my 92 nissan pathfinder. and how can i check to see if its bad or switch it on?


The low pressure switch in an A/C system cannot be manually "switched" on or off.
most A/C systems have 2 switches. Both of these switches are "switched" by the pressure of the freon in the system.
One is located on the high side of the system, and the other is on the low side of the system. The one located on the high side is a normally closed switch that opens the A/C clutch circuit and shuts the compressor off when the high side pressure gets dangerously high - usually around 350 - 400 PSI. This keeps you from having an explosion in the event that the hoses become restricted for any number of possible reasons.
The low pressure switch opens the A/C clutch circuit and shuts the compressor off when there is not enough pressure on the low side of the system to safely operate the system. usually somewhere around 20 PSI. The compressor is oiled by oil circulating along with the freon in the system. If the freon leaks out, the pressure drops and the oil cannot circulate because there is not enough freon to push it through the system. So the low pressure switch shuts the compressor off to keep the compressor from blowing up due to oil starvation.
Failure of these switches is very rare. Almost every one that I have replaced was not because the switch didn't switch, but because it was leaking freon.
If your low pressure switch is keeping your A/C compressor from running, it is most likely that the system is either out of freon (due to a leak somewhere in the system) or because it is unplugged.
Your Nissan is equipped with a "Dual Pressure" switch. it does the job of both switches by opening under extremely high pressure as well as extremely low pressure conditions. it is located beween the front grill and the A/C condensor near the Accumulator just to the right (as you are facing the front of the car) of the right headlamp area. See picture.50e4218.gif To determine if this switch is functioning properly, you must hook-up an A/C pressure manifold gauge (to find out what the actual system pressure is) and use a volt/ohm meter to determine if the switch is opening and closing under the correct pressures.

A/C problem


The low pressure cut out switch located in the larger refrigerant line (the low pressure side) in front of the evaporator (passenger side, under the hood) may be sensing low refrigerant. Also the low pressure switch may have a bad electrical connection or the switch may be going bad.
