Compresor dont get current has diagrams for free when you register your car on their site. You can test the low pressure cut-off valve downstream from the evaporator tank by disconnecting the harness from the switch and using a good size wire to loop into the harness.

If the compressor clutch kicks in, you have either low system pressure or a bad low-pressure cut-out switch. This is a test procedure. Even bypassing direct as you have done can risk damaging the compressor.

Besides Freon, compressors need oil, the right type, and a small amount. There are Freon cans which include an oil charge as well as sealers and conditioners to prevent or fix leaks. Remember that the system has a volume limit and more additives leaves less room for the Freon to work good.

If you have low pressure, it is possible that what is left is contaminated. Freon is a gas. Air is a gas. The system was suppose to start with Vacuum negative pressure by using a Vacuum pump(Loaner item). This means that total volume inside your hoses could be wrong. It is easier to understand when you consider the Freon changes back to a liquid and Air needs a much lower temperature to become a liquid. So you lose volume for the Freon to change back from liquid to a gas. It constantly cycles like this to make it transmit heat from the cabin to the outside.

I hope my solution is helpful.

Se activa y desactiva el compresor del aire acondicionado

Cuando pasa eso muy seguido digamos cada 10 segundos el refrigerante esta muy bajo, si esta en clima frio no use el defroster muy seguido el compressor se puede descomponer, va ha llegar un momento que el refrigerante este tan bajo que el sensor de presion no va a activar el compresor pero no se espere a que eso pase llevelo a reparar o ha recargar.

Landrover 2001 cuts out after 5 to 10 minutes (no spark,no fault lights/warning signals)After 30+ minutes car starts runs perfect for 5 to 10 and cuts out.Help needed, thanks

I just ran into a 2002 Discovery doing the same thing. What ended up being the fix was a cam sensor and crank sensor. That is about all I can say without more information. Hope this helps and best of luck.

2001 chevrolet S-10 I installed a new A/C compresor and the dryer and then I charge it with R-13 but it only last 2 days

This is a sign that you have a slow leak in the a/c line, recharge it with the the R-134 and run it for 5 minutes and check for a leak by putting soapy water on the exposed a/c lines. also check the seal on the new A/C pump itself.
