Clutch may be coming apart. Try pulling the connector off the compressor. If the clutch releases, it's getting a command on signal from the HVAC control unit. The compressor will come on when in defrost setting. If the compressor stays on with the connector unplugged, the clutch is bad and needs repair.

Why is my 2001 Dodge Dakota Quad Cab 5.9L Air Condition compressor turning on all the time.


have the pressures checked in the a/c system. if its too low the compressor will turn on and off a lot. it could also be a faulty pressure switch.

Air conditioning problems


First check that all electrical connections to/from your air conditioning components are tight and secure with no broken or chaffed wires and connectors, or oil swollen connection points. Then check that all fuses and relays involved in the operation of your air conditioning system are operational. If all is good, then remove the belt around the air conditioner compressor pulley. Get a wrench and try to turn the front of the compressor pulley. It should turn with little to no resistance. If it wont move or is very hard to turn, it is probably locked up and needs repair or replacement. If it moves, then the compressor part is OK, but your clutch would likely need replacement. Some model cars its cheaper to just replace the whole compressor than to rebuild the clutch. Jaguar sounds expensive - I would seek out a junk yard. Good luck.

My bmw 318i air con fanbelt broke how urgent is this


Are you sure that the belt only turns the AC compressor? Be sure that it's not also connected to the fan and the power steering pump. If it's only turning the air conditioning compressor then you can live with it for as long as you can live without air conditioning.

When I turn on the ac it blow out hot air.


Do you hear the air conditioning compressor switch on (with the engine running) when you turn on the air conditioning from inside the car. Get a friend to turn on and off the air conditioning while you listen with the hood open engine running you should hear a clicking sound on and off each time the a/c is cycled on and off or the a/c clutch is not locking up the compressor. This may be due to many things (bad clutch, bad compressor, no power to controls or compressor clutch) but it could be a sign of low charge the system has a low pressure switch which prevents the system from being energized if the system has low refrigerant charge. By protecting itself it prevent catastrophic failure of the compressor and ensuing damage to the rest of the a/c system if the system looses it charge. You will need to have the system checked out by someone experienced in air conditioning work who will attach pressure gauges to your car and see if the refrigerant pressures are OK. The system naturally looses some refrigerant over time but if the system constantly looses charge then it has a leak that must be investigated and repaired before just recharging the system

Air condition compressor won;t kick in


Most likely a loss of refrigerant ( freon ) in the system. The A/C compressor uses a low pressure switch as a SAFETY to insure it wont turn on without freon in the system. Hope this helps.

A\c compressor , defrost


That is actually the design of Honda defrosters. The air conditioning system by design dries out the air in the car. To increase the efficiency of the defroster Hondas automatically turn on the air conditioning. This dries out the air and de-fogs the windows.

Air conditioning light blinks, turns off


either the belt is loose or there is a compressor issue (either the clutch or the compressor is most likely shot)

I used these guys for my last one to have it shipped to me. If you haven't done this before it is not an easy DIY job (you need a vaccum pump, and gauges to do it correctly
