You sar has a clutch i have not find any car without clutch,
does that answer your question? the clutch is the part of the pulley at front of the compressor that does not turn until you turn the a/c on and then start turning

Air conditioning light flashes and air con does not seem to wwork


Hello Don Emmett,

I suppose this would be a really great time to ask...
because one cannot offer an intelligent answer with
being the all knowing... all seeing (blah blah blah)...
Year, make & model
...??

Sadly for you... I'm the second twin ... which OFFICIALY makes me "the other" (as opposed to the "one" mentioned before...

I seldom even wait for questions to be completed... before starting my answers.

Year, make & model...does matter (just not much)...
Somewhere in the last couple of decades... automotive
engineers felt they could add a level of reliability
by adding pressure switches... This keeps the COMPRESSORS from POINTLESSLY OPERATING without any REFRIGERANT in the system

(low pressure = escaped refrigerant)

Refrigerant gets away sometimes because the "condenser"
(typically in front of the RADIATOR)... got hit by a "road hazard"
and now has a nice leak... or more likely THE INPUT SHAFT SEAL on your COMPRESSOR is worn... (oil shows... behind the clutch... (on your otherwise spotless engine (little oily dirt line inside the hood (too))). My money is on the FRONT SEAL.

Fix it... Gambling will only get you another season or two
but will likely result in an ENTIRE pump replacement.

If you are half psychic you might want to gamble or guess how much oil got away... there are ways to add oil without opening the system)... After this point there is more begetting & begetting than the old testament.

Run without enough oil... lose the compressor + condenser + dryer. Put in the wrong oil or in-compatible REFRIGERANT...
gum up the system...

Just fix it... Seals are cheap...
If it WAS a FREON 22 system it is long past needing an update.
California ... it is a CAPITAL CRIME to even speak of refrigerant...
Unless you are in the Mojave (did you ever notice how quiet everybody gets above 115 degrees?)...

I'm just saying

Disclose what refrigerant you are using... in which car... the age of the car... Bullet holes, raccoons living under hood? Oil all over the compressor... and I can speculate if shorting the pressure switch will cause the clutch to engage... or blow up the compressor.

My best guess YOUR REFRIGERANT IS LOW.

Share a couple of details... I'm sure I can help.

Can the ac compressor clutch on a 2006 dodge stratus be replaced without replacing the entire ac compressor?


i dont know of any domestic cars that dont have rebuildable/replaceable clutches on the compressor. best way to find out is to call a parts store and see if you can get the part.

Can I replace the A/C clutch myself or do I need any special tools? Can I by pass this with a different belt?


bypassing the compressor is best to do. get a belt for your engine less the ac option. the removal and tear down of any compressor is not easy for a novice

How to trouble shoot air condition compresuer


You really want to troubleshoot your AC. Here are some items to follow:
1- Make sure your Compressor clutch work first. You can jump the wire to test it when the engine is off.
When you know the clutch work then you can look for the other things not makeing it activated.
2- It it doesn't work then you know the problem right there.
3- If it works then check the Low and high pressure according to compressor spec.
3- Check your engine temperature sensor. Don't think that your temp reading gauge is coorect then your engine temperature for your AC is working.
4- Check your compressor sensor speed. It has to be in sych with your crankshaft sensor before it allows the clutch engaged to prevent burning your compressor when it is locked up is in freezing mode ( ex.in case some clever people jumping wire to control the clutch bypassing all other rerquirement).
5- If you think these items need to be addressed by professional better then do-it yourself then I have no objection. Good luck on trying.

Compressor clutch does not engage--100 psi in system-


The compressor will not run without a minimum amount of R-134A. In some cases the compressor will shut itself down and require a reset (disconnect neg battery cable for 20min) prior to adding refrigerant. Best of luck with your AC issue.

Noise from A/C Compressor


Yes, look for an aircon technician that can swap a/c compressor clutch without removing the compressor from the bracket. if your lucky enough there are technicians who can do it without even leaking or discharging the gas from your aircon system
