Hiya Bruce,
The system has a low pressure cut-out,I believe that you have a system leaking refrigerant causing the compressor to energize only when you hot wire it.Charge the system with Refrigerant/dye formula and run system and check for leaks and repair as necessary. I hope this helps you Bruce, Good Luck!

I would like to bypass the pcm to check if the compressor is bad or if its the pcm


U have basically two wires running to compressor - a hot and a ground. Identify the hot wire and splice into it a hot wire from the wall. If compressor is good it should immediately kick on.

Can you tell if the radiator fan is working ? It should come on when the engine temp reaches 225 degrees and when the ac is switched on.

A/c on 97 chevy blazer v6 will not stay on unless I hot wire it and then it still blows hot air. what might be the next thing i check or do to find the problem?


It is probably low on freon. The low pressure switch will turn it off to protect the compressor because it needs the freon to circulate the oil. Hot-wiring it defeats the purpose of the low pressure switch and runs the compressor without oil. If you have not already destroyed your compressor by hot-wiring it, you can probably get it working better by charging the system.

The compressor is not running and we have checked the fusses but it is blowing hot air. Could you please advise on this


Does it have freon? Compressor will not run unless it has freon. This is to protect it from breaking.

The car has been sitting for almost a year. I started it today to drive out of necessity. The A/C clutch does not engage. How do i jumper across the pressure switch to add freon? Thanks, Ken


dont!!! an you start to add freon, itll start to cycle the compresor clutch until within safe operating pressure and then it will hold clutch in constant. charge liquid(with can upside down). if wont take freon in this manner than your more than low on charge. running low on charge will quickly destroy pump, especiallt those old harrisons. the refrigerant also cools the compressor. good luck and wear gloves-

I have a 1998 GMC Jimmy & there's no power going to my low pressure switch which is located on the accumulator. I ran a hot wire from the battery to the ac compressor, filled the system with 1.8lbs of...


Running a hot wire bypasses any compressor cycling. Low side should pull down to 20 psi or less when compressor is hot wired. If not pulling down you may have weak compressor or way to much freon in system.

In my 1990 Cadillac Deville there is a sticker that says that one can reset the computer that controls the compressor by disconnecting the battery for a few minutes and reconnecting.

Did you disconnect the battery to reset the a/c system?

The symptoms you are describing lead me to believe that there is a safety feature that prevents the compressor from engaging when the compressor has been run for any length of time without at least .5 lbs. of freon in the system.

You said that you had to run a hot wire to charge it up with freon. But, if you ran it without freon, it may have automatically invoked the 'safety' feature.

I have seen this happen on my 1990 cadillac. I haven't had any problems on my 1997 Cadillac Limousine, because I never had a low charge on that car.
