I have a 05 Navigator the compressor was not coming on at all. I changed the compressor and it still won't come on.

Check for battery voltage at compressor clutch. Check ECM
(computer) for A/C command. Problem could be in control panel.

Make sure A/C button is on (if equipped)

Compressor not coming on check red wire on compressor with test light compressor comes on pressure good high and low air cold

If the compressor came on when you were testing it with a test light, it sounds like something is wrong with your ground for your compressor, and completely the circuit through your test light.

Ac blowing ht air, compressor not coming on

Check the fuses/relay for the compressor. If good, bypass the pressure switch. If the compressor comes on, there is too little internal pressure. Have the system evacuated and recharged. If the compressor does not come on, it could be bad.

96 ford aerostar 4.0v/6 the a/c compressor wont come on and tested the low and high side switch and voltage is good but there is no voltage to the compressor plug on the clutch. where is the compressor...

The main brain box (ECU) is in control of the compressor. For instance, it shuts the compressor off if the brake lights come on. The brain could be refusing the compressor for several reasons.
