Possible it is out of freon. Some cars have low pressure cut off switch that cuts off compressor when freon is low.
Hope this help

A/C compressor spins, but why is there no cold air?


You may need a shop manual to get the wiring diagrams and test procedures.
The ac compressor gets power from several sources and those would need to be checked. The control on the dash, the low and high pressure switches, the relay, and so on.
If the compressor is ok, you should be able to jumper the clutch like you did and feel one line cold and the other line warm if freon is flowing thru the system.

Ac clutch won't engage on a 1999 dodge grand caravan automatic


Tap the clutch with a hammer lightly while a/c is on full blast. If it still doesnt engage its time for a new one. Future reference in the winter keep your heat on defrost some of the time, it activates your clutch in the A/C compressor so the bearings wont seize when you go to turn it on, on a hot day.

No power to a/c compressor, I have checked the fuses, relays and freon.


The trigger from the dash switch activates the relay which in turn switches on the solenoid pulley to engage the compressor to work. If this circuit is traced the fault of a open circuit can be found out. If there is no power in the fuse or relay then the main wiring must be checked.
Also a failure of the solenoid clutch cannot engage the compressor and so the circuit to this section must be checked.

Clutch on comp will not engage tried jumping checked frion have 150 on high side 55 low side checked fuses even unpluged high pressure switch on back of comp.


if the Ac compressor clutch isnt engaging even with a hot wire then the solonoid has packed up if does engage then it could be a pressure safety switch although i would empty the system with my machine and weight the gas i take out as if less than 150 grms then it will not work ,never mind the pressure its the weight of gas in the system that makes the switch allow the compressor come on

A/C compressor clutch stays ingugae when switch is off


check the compressor clutch relay. The contacts may have fused together. If there is something constantly enegizing the coils then it is either a bad switch or a shorted lectronic component, usually a single transistor inside an electronic control box.

A/C Clutch not engaging on my Tuarus 1998


YOU CHECKED ALLOT BUT YOU DID NOT MENTION THE AC COMPRESSOR CYCLING SWITCH, DID YOU TEST IT? DOES THE COMPRESSOR RUN IF YOU JUMP IT, HAVE U CHECKED TO SEE IF THE COMPRESSOR TERMINAL HAS 12 VOLTS AND GROUND WHEN TURNED ON? THE CYCLING SWITCH AND THE COMPRESSOR CLUTCH ARE ALMOST ALWAYS THE PROBLEM WHEN THE SYSTEM IS CHARGED BUT THE COMPRESSOR DOES NOT RUN.
