A/C Compressor won't start

My compressor clutch won't activate. All fuses are good and I have switched all relays around trying to move problem. I still get no voltage at the compressor connector. I need to know if the wire goes directly from the compressor to the rear fuse box and what the voltage should be? The car has 170000 kms. ( I drive alot ) so the warr is gone. I'm also looking for a description of the relays for the car. The owners manual doesn't list the relays. Thank-you for any help.....

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.

Vt aircon compressor wont engage

check the freon, if there isn't enough it won't engage, could also be the low pressure switch or a fuse.

What's your problem?ac compressor clutch has no power 95 blazer,all fuses are good,all relays are good,where do I look next?

make sure there is free-on in the system.{there has to be an ample amount of free-on in the system to turn on the compressor.}1. disconnect the high pressure switch. take a jumper wire and jump the pins. compressor should come on. if compressor comes on the switch is bad.

AC blowing hot air, and won't accept freeon (2004 silverado Z71)

You may have already done this but thought I would throw it out there. Have you checked the fuse for the A/C compressor or the A/C compressor relay? If not just to let you know they are both located in the underhood fuse panel (below is a picture of it). Also below is a siagram of the fuse layout. The fuse with the yellow arrow is the fuse for the compressor and the red arrow is the A/C compressor relay. onther possible things could be a bad pressure switch. Do you have any pressure in there at all? Just a couple of things to check out. I hope this helps and good luck.

The a/c clutch wont engage

Did you try jumping where the Clutch relay plugs into the fuse/relay box ? Pin 87 & 30 are the compressor clutch coil power supply . If you look on the bottom of the relay you will see four set's of numbers 30 & 87 , 85 & 86 . If you take a piece of wire an jump 30 to 87 this will send B+ voltage to the clutch coil engaging the compressor . Is the PCM turning on the relay ?

How do you remove the air conditioning pressure switch? we are trying to charge the a/c but need to keep the compressor running and can't figure out how to remove this switch to "jump" it.


I always jump the relayi instead of the sensor, it is easier and don't run the chance to screw up the sensor.

Look for the fuse box in the engine compartment, usually by the battery, take the cover off and look inside, there is a diagram with the location of the fuses and relays, look for the A/C Clutch Relay, (it may not say Clutch in it), look at the diagram in the relay to see which terminals are for the load and which are the ones to activate the coil, turn the key in the Ignition to the "Run" positiion, insert a piece of wire in the holes between the load terminals(usually are 86 and 30), no need to insert relay back, you should hear a click coming from the compressor clutch been activated. Remove Jumper and replace Relay when done working on A/C compressor;

Don't forget to rate this post. Good Luck!!!

2002 sonata v6,clutch not sngaging on compressor ,can it be fixed?any suggestions?

Airconditioner compressor (clutch) on 2001 chrysler neon 2.0 does not activate when turning on a/c. a) bypass of a/c relay in engine comparment control box causes clutch to engage b) fuse is not blown. c)...

The problem turned out to be a blown fuse labelled EBL Clutch, located in the instrument console (side panel in the dashboard next to steering wheel on a RHD model).

I downloaded the manuals of the Neon and it advised a sequence of checks to be done:
1. Test High Pressure switch located on compressor - check that the switch w/o/ cable gives a closed reading, then test with bypass in cable.
2. Test Low pressure switch located on accumulator, ( I could not find this switch). Bypass of this switch should engage the compressor clutch
3. I discovered the blown fuse when trying to activate the rear window heater and saw that the light on the switch did not activate - went looking for the fuse for this device and then found the EBL Clutch, really by accident. Shows you how confusing an abbreviated label on a fuse can be and that it does not always support the significance of it.

Other observations:
1. A/C compressor cannot run non-stop and must be controlled by the A/C controller. Hard wiring the clutch and running the engine for a few minutes led to the compressor shuddering and then discharging some gas through the saftefy valve. Normally this power supply would have been interrupted by the high pressure valve.
2. Release of coolant gas from the high pressure safety valve located on the compressor may indicate a faulty high pressure switch, but the primary or underlying reason may be due to a blocked Dryer in the A/C system.
3. The Daimler Mercedes Neon Agents, and an A/C company and an auto electrical company all attended unsuccessfully to this problem. No discredit meant in any way, it just shows that the incorrect label here makes solving such an ordinary problem very problematic. If any advice can be given to the Agents, read the manual.

Tahoe Air Conditioning - No Electricity to Compressor

With the engine NOT running, pull the connection to the compressor clutch and hit the terminals with 12 volts from the battery. If the clutch clicks it's OK and probably is not working because of a low freon interlock if there is one.

You said you added a can of freon...... was the clutch working when you did this? If it all went sour when you added the can , could you have done it wrong and dumped the rest of the freon?
