1995 pontiac bonneville A/C compressor

I am trying to find out what would keep my A/C compressor from working. I can jumper it and get it to engage so I know it works. How can I tell if the PCM is sending a signal. Thanks Rick Hansen

You can check for 12 volts going to the compressor when it is time for it to come on. this voltage passes through several switches along the way that could prevent it from coming on. the refrigerant is probably low and preventing the compressor from running

    the pcm grounds one leg of the relay which in turn sends power to the compressor. the relay should click when it is switching on or off.

I have a 1995 pontiac Bonneville compressor is locked up and broke the serpentine belt need to fix please help thanks Ron

Most cars have an option to buy a belt for a car with or without Air Conditioning. I would check first if your car offers that option (then if you don't need AC you can just buy the other belt and not have to fix the compressor). If you need AC you will have to buy a new compressor (local junkyard is your cheapest bet). I would have a mechanic install either the new belt (to make sure no other pulleys were bent when the belt snapped) or the compressor (some AC lines can be difficult or dangerous to repair or replace). Good Luck!

Change ac compressor on 1995 bonneville do alternator belt has to come off and is it a due it yourself job

No, A/C replacement is complicated, there are legal issues with the release of the R132. There are oiling issued to be addressed, and a receiver / dryer that needs to be changed. Take to a qualified shop for this job.
it is VERY easy to get injured working with A/C systems.

Fan relay not working , fan keeps going on and off wont stay running

One of your fans works off the coolant temperature sensors input and will only engage when the coolant temperature reaches and/or exceeds a certain preset degree. The other runs off of your a/c compressor and when it engages so will the auxiliary or secondary cooling fan. Start the engine cold, turn on the a/c and listen for the secondary fan to engage then as it warms up listen to see if the primary fan engages. when it reaches running temperature. Please rate me on this answer.

My 1995 pontiac bonneville slips out of overdrive all the time, what causes this?

all "gears" in your transmission depend upon hydraulic pressure to keep them engaged. if od clutch is worn or burned, or pressure is escaping at an internal seal it can cause the problem you have. Always be sure that fluid is full and is not burned. If it seems OK, have the unit checked by a reliable shop...there is nothing "user friendly" except perhaps a fluid and filter change that can be done on your transmission.
