HI,
The airconditioner turns on the auxillary fan when the compressor is on via a relay. I would change the relay. If hard wired the fan to the compressor I would think the fuse has blown since there is too much of a load on one circuit. Check to A/C fuse. If the fuse is no good replace it.If it is not the fuse, check the fuse under the HOOD..

Please post back for how things turned or for further assistance..Thank you!..Regards!!..

Air conditioner blows hot but freon is full


Your compressor could be faulty. Check to see if it engages when you press the AC button with the car running.

1997 ford thunderbird colling fan runs when engine is cold


If the radiator fan runs with the engine is cold and the ac - defrost is off, you would need to check the fan relay and see if it is getting a ground signal from the computer.
The computer grounds the relay when the fan is needed.
The fan will run anytime the ac compressor is engaged.

Help 2008 ford fusion heater and ac stopped working


1) TEST the fuse+ relar of a/c
see the next steps and fix it. God bless you
If so, the compressor is working and the A/C system probably contains enough refrigerant to make cold air, so the problem is inside the HVAC unit. Replace the motor that controls the blend air door (this is a difficult job and best left to a professional since it involves tearing apart the HVAC unit -- about an 8 to 10 hour job!).
If the compressor does not engage when you turn on the A/C, see if it will run by jumping the compressor clutch wire directly to the battery (use a fused jumper wire). If the compressor works when you jump it, and the A/C blows cold air, the system contains refrigerant and the fault is likely a bad A/C compressor clutch relay or a bad clutch cycling switch or pressure switch.
If the compressor does not engage when you jump it, the problem is a bad compressor clutch.
If the clutch engages but the compressor does not turn (the belt will start to slip and squeal), the compressor is locked up and you need a new compressor.
If the compressor clutch engages and turns the compressor, but the A/C still does not blow cold air, the system is probably low on refrigerant and needs to be recharged

Put a jump wire in the high pressure switch plug. If the compressor works. replace the high pressure switch. Let me know and we can go from there.

AC compressor will not energize


First thing you should check is all your grounds, on the body and your battery connections. Also double checked to make sure you have the air conditioning on with the fan on. If this is good the next thing to do is to get a wiring diagram. Verify that there's power going into the switching and coming out of the switch. Next find the compressor relay verify that there's power going two it. If this is good use your tests light to ground out the relay. If this works find out where the ground wire goes to the computer or the wide open relay. Good luck.

I have a 91 dodge colt that the ac clutch is not engaging. All other parts of the ac are working. The ac compressor relay has voltage to the coil but the ground circuit from the engine control unit is not...


if the freon pressure is too high or too low there are two seperate pressure sensors that will disable the a/c clutch to prevent dammage to the compressor. You need to check (or have it checked, dangerous if you do not know how) the pressure on the high and low ports while you have you jumper wire in place and the a/c is running. PLEASE RATE MY solution as I am new on here, Thanks

1996 lincoln towncar. No a/c compressor engagement unless jumped


the control unit is no good.i had a similar situation with a 98 tracker,and installed a switch to give it a ground for the compressor relay that comes from the a/c computer module.
it works good and goes on and off with the a/c switch.

Ac new and ran for 4 months then stoped.


Try checking the spacing of the clutch of the compressor to your A/C...chances are the gap is too large and will not pull down to engage the compressor. That should eliminate the jump wire and keep your car snowing. No clutch to engage the compressor, no A/C.

A/C Clutch not engaging on my Tuarus 1998


YOU CHECKED ALLOT BUT YOU DID NOT MENTION THE AC COMPRESSOR CYCLING SWITCH, DID YOU TEST IT? DOES THE COMPRESSOR RUN IF YOU JUMP IT, HAVE U CHECKED TO SEE IF THE COMPRESSOR TERMINAL HAS 12 VOLTS AND GROUND WHEN TURNED ON? THE CYCLING SWITCH AND THE COMPRESSOR CLUTCH ARE ALMOST ALWAYS THE PROBLEM WHEN THE SYSTEM IS CHARGED BUT THE COMPRESSOR DOES NOT RUN.
