1st solution is to check the charge in your a/c system. it's maybe just low on freeon. if not that, suggest you have the a/c compressor checked out. hope this helps!!

I have a 2001 aurora and code p1860 p1860 came up what is this and how much to fix


P1860 All GM - TCC (transmission Torque Converter Clutch) PWM Solenoid Circuit Electrical.
P1860 Description The Torque Converter Clutch Pulse Width Modulation (TCC PWM) solenoid valve controls the fluid acting on the converter clutch valve. The converter clutch valve controls the TCC application and release. The solenoid attaches to the control valve body within the transmission. The solenoid receives ignition voltage through circuit 239. The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) controls the solenoid by providing a ground path on circuit 418. Current flows through the solenoid coil according to the duty cycle (percentage of ON and OFF time). The TCC PWM solenoid valve provides a smooth engagement of the torque converter clutch by operating during a duty cycle percent of ON time.
When is the code detected? When the PCM detects a continuous open, short to ground or short to power in the TCC PWM solenoid valve circuit, then DTC P1860 sets. DTC P1860 is a type B DTC.

Possible causes - Faulty Torque Converter Clutch Pulse Width Modulation (TCC PWM) Solenoid
- Torque Converter Clutch Pulse Width Modulation (TCC PWM) Solenoid harness is open or shorted
- Torque Converter Clutch Pulse Width Modulation (TCC PWM) Solenoid circuit poor electrical connection. Unless you have a factory manual and very good auto repair skills this is best left to an expert. It is a messy dirty job that requires removing the parts inside the transmission for testing..

The compressor cycles on an of at stop light and blows hot and cold air the hoses comeing from condenser is hot


clutch going bad--low on freon so short cycling ---condenser lines will be hot the evaporator lines are the cold ones

I have Honda Accord 2001and I put the scanner this Code come out p1768 what this means


Possible causes
- Clutch Pressure Control Solenoid Valve harness is open or shorted
- Clutch Pressure Control Solenoid Valve circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty Clutch Pressure Control Solenoid Valve

Has to do with the solenoid or wiring to the solenoid inside the transmission. You should have the problem addressed at a transmission shop.

Climate control want work


Your EAC has self diagnosis by flashing symbols on the display panel,When a fault is detected the control will flash the appropriate symbols, This climate control is based on rapid a/c clutch cycling,if a fault is detected from the a/c clutch it will be disabled for all ignition cycle,remove battery power this will temporaily restore a/c operation ,if there is a rapic a/c cylcle the system will disable a/c operation,or if the a/c clutch is shorted,open,or grounded you will have no a/c operation

A/c compressor clutch wont disengage when switch turned on but does when relay is jumped, tried changing relay but problem remains


Do you mean the clutch wont engage when switched on? If that is the case then maybe the system is low on refrigerant.
There should be a two wire low pressure cycling switch on the dryer/accumulator. Turn the a/c on and jumper that switch. If it works then you may be low on refrigerant or that switch is bad. Unless it was removed, there is supposed to be a shrader valve behind that cycling switch so it can be removed and replaced without loss of refrigerant (unless the shrader is leaking).

If it still does not work then it may be the controls. I can't get more specific as you did not give any info on the specific vehicle.

I have a 02 lincoln ls . the air conditiong is not working . i took it to a local shop they check the compressor, fuses, relays, pressure swithches, all is checcking out good. They jump the compressor...


YOU COULD HAVE OPEN OR SHORT IN THE BLACK YELLOW WIRE GOING TO AC COMPRESSOR CYCLING PRESSURE SWITCH. CHECK FOR A SHORT OR OPEN IN RED YELLOW WIRES AT THE AC PRESSURE CUTOFF SWITCH. USE VOLT METER AND CHECK FOR VOLTAGE AT BOTH SWITCHES. PROBLEM COULD BE IN THE EATC MODULE THAT SEND POWER TO PURPLE WIRE THAT FEEDS THE AC PRESSURE CUTOFF SWITCH AND AC CLUTCH CYCLING PRESSURE SWITCH THEN FEEDS THE AC COMPRESSOR CLUTCH SOLENOID.

When I turn the airconditioner on or the defrosters, the heater/airconditioning fuse blows? Any thoughts on where to start looking?


Problem is in the a/c circuit. Any time the defrost is on the a/c compressor will cycle on & off as it is used to dehumidify the air directed to the windshield. That's why the fuse can blow even in defrost mode.

Unplug the power connector at the a/c compressor and see if the fuse still blows. If not, then with a dmm or vom test a/c clutch winding for short. If ok, then test clutch diode for short. The diode is usually mounted at the clutch winding, but I've seen Chevy's with a diode that plugs into fuse/relay block under the hood. I have replaced these so don't overlook it.

If fuse blows with compressor unplugged then first check circuit between compressor and a/c relay (power side) for a short. It's possible for the wire to rub a bare spot in the insulation along it's travel along the block, bracket or manifold to the compressor. If ok, then test from relay (winding side) back to switch.

Good luck.
