93 ford tempo air conditioning compressor clicking on then off?

There are 2 switches that control the ac compressor operation . One is to stop the compressor destruction from an over full system or a high head pressure from the condenser fan not working . When the system pressure is exceeded then the ac compressor switches off . The other is a low pressure switch that shuts the ac compressor when there is too little gas . Unless you have checked the system for leaks ( why else would you be adding gas) then if you have just recharged the system it is more than likely that there is too much gas . Best advice is to go to an accredited ac specialist and have the system checked for leaks and the correct gas pressure/ volume

I have a 2000 yukon and the ac comp. Wont come on...when i put 12 volts to it it comes on but not when plugged in...fuse and relay r good...any thoughts?

Hi Chris, have the gas pressure checked. If it is low the system has inhibitor pressure switches which stop it from operating. Regards John

Air conditioning in my 2002 dodge caravan not working properly. When I drive runs slow and when stopped the car stops the air conditioning too

have you had the system check for proper pressures and if it has air in the system or a leak causing low pressure in the system.this needs to be checked out by a shop that does a/c work.

My 1999 z71 pickup air conditioning is cooling for a few minutes and sometimes longer and then it stops cooling. The fan continues to run but the compressor apparently stops running.

Check the low pressure switch, sit on the accumulator, on passenger side, when a/c compr is not working, wiggle the connector to the low pressure switch, 9 out of ten time's thats the problem, I have seen this many time here at my repair shop. Replace harness connector, auto parts sell this, runs about $15.00 for this, but check first before you buy it.

Air Conditioning doesn't work

Sounds like you are on the right track. Jump the pressure switch and see if the compressor comes on.

Air conditioning not working on my VW New Beetle

yes there is a relay under the hood, usually located in the power distribution box and if that doesnt fix it, try checking the low pressure switch, located on the accumulator or the low pressure line. You can check this by unplugging the two wire pigtail and completing the circut with a paperclip
