Question about 2000 Ford Mustang

AC compressor not engaging

The AC is charged and the fan is working. Is there a relay fuse for it somewhere other than the fuse box under the dash or under the hood on the drivers side over the wheel well? If that is not the problem, then what is? Thank you for any input you may have.

    air condition clutch does no engage so we connected the compressor directly to the battery then it does engage. we are thinking one it is an electrical problem from the compressor.

    I don't know why there is no power to the ac fuse under the dash, where does the power supply come from before the fuse box? I took the fuse out and there was no power to the lugs either.

Hi, you should never bypass the compresor because it may cause damage to the sistem including the compresor,even if the sistem is charged if it gets a little low it may prevent the cluth to engage to prevent damage ,be sure that you have the proper freon presure.also check the ac relay and the fuse.....good luck

My a/c clutch is not engaging and there for the cooling fan is is not working what could be the cause


There are two relevant relays. One is the AC relay, turns the compressor on. The other is the AC fan relay that turns the fan on. Find the AC relay in the underhood fuse/relay block. You could pull it out and with key on, check if one terminal for the relay has power as it should. If it does, swap these two relays, then see if compressor comes on. If it still doesn't work, the dash controls will need diagnosing. There may be a fuse for it, so check for that, a blown fuse.
If it was working and just quit, it is probably a job for a shop.

Ac is not blowing out cold air. You have to put gages on the system and it shows its has freon.Checked all fuses and relays. The two fans in engingine compartment do not come on when the ac is turned on but does when the engine gets hot. The compressor engages when turned on also.
If the magnetic clutch engages the compressor and still no cold air could be still low in freon or the HVAC unit.

Blower motor not working all the time...if I bang the dash near the glove box, it comes on then works great. Is this the switch assembly, the resistor problem, or should I be replacing the blower motor?

New compresser just stopped working was very cold ran it all day and now the compressor is not kicking in and out how can you tell if it is a relay or loss of carge


FIrst, with any electrical problem, always check the fuses first. The only way to correctly check the charge of the AC system is with a set of guages. You can assume the charge is good and procede with the electrical diagnosis, but it may all be a waste of time if the system has lost the charge. With the AC on, if there is a proper charge in the system, there should be 12v at the compressor clutch connector. This will be a 2 wire connector just behind the AC pulley. You will need a 12v test light, meter, or some way to check for voltage. If there is 12v and the compressor is not engaged, then the clutch coil has gone bad. If there is not 12v then you will need to check the relay for voltage. Sometimes you can swap relays with another that has the same part number. If the original relay is bad then the compressor will start working after the swap. Check all the fuses, under the hood and under the dash. Sometimes a fuse will control more than one circuit.

My ac is not working on my 2000 mustang 3.8L. I'm getting power from the compressor and I had the clutch replaced. We jumped the low pressure switches and then replaced the fuses. The clutch will still not...


You were close! Most Fords have a CCRM (Continuous Control Relay Module) thats on the passenger side fenderwell. It has 4 relays: one for the AC compressor cluth, one for the fuel pump, and two for the electric fan (high- and low-speed.) The AC is the one that fails the most. You can replace the CCRM by removing the intake air filter box and working through the fenderwell openings. If it gets to difficult you must remove the wheel and splash cover to replace it from the wheel opening.

My a/c doesn't engage in 04 Grand caravan 3.3L V6 Ann. Edition


The most common problem that happens with a/c units in vehicles is that the clutch goes out. While the vehicle is on, you can have someone press the a/c on button while you're watching your a/c compressor. In the front of the compressor, you can see the plate engage/disengage when functioning normally. If you would like to get the specs for your vehicle free of charge, try www.autozone.com/ You'll have to register for an account, but it's a free service. If you need more help, just send me a comment.

If you have no power (12v) to the power wire at the A/C compressor clutch and have jumpered all of the switches then you need to check for power coming out of the A/C switch on the dash. Also there might be a pressure switch on the back of the compressor that you can jumper also. You can also check A/C compressor relay in the under hood fuse/relay box. There might be a fuse in the under hood fuse/relay box for the A/C too. Hope this helps.

Ac not working


I had the same problem with the over temp sensor on the compressor. I had it repaired at the dealer for $200.00 plus. I just had the same problem reoccur. This time I bypassed the switch myself.

There is a small wire harness that runs from the compressor above the radiator, inside there are three wires. After determining which ones to jump " two smaller gage blue" the AC system works fine in all modes.

Thanks "Guset"
