Check fuses first. If fuses are ok, than check for 12V at compressor when engine is running w a/c on. If no power is present than you probably don't have any R134 in your system. Poss. leak. Compressor will not turn on if there is no pressure in system there is a part called "pressure switch" which monitors a/c system pressure. If no pressure is pressent, the switch will not send the signal to the ECM to send 12V to the compressor. See if you have any R134a in system.

Relays click when interior fan is on


Often the click which can be heard when the A.C. kicks in is the clutch on the A.C. compressor. Be sure that it isn't just this sound which you are hearing.
Also check the operation of the idle control valve which is supposed to raise the engine revs to compensate for heavy power drain. If this isn't working correctly, then this would explain the lights dimming under low revs.

Where is compressor control relay 05 altima


This is a low system charge most likely not a compressor relay. Have gauges hooked up to the AC system and the pressures checked. If the system is low you have a leak and it must be repaired before you add anymore refrigerant.

Kia rio 2002 air conditioning problems, Hi, currently my air conditioning just doesn't start at all, it was working properly and suddenly witout a warning it' just stopped working. It does not work...


If the AC compressor is kicking in and out then you are probably low on freon. If the Compressor isn't kicking in at all then the problem could be a fuse or relay in the Power distribution box or the fuse in the interior of the car. If the fuse and relays are good then the problem could be a bad clutch on the compressor or a bad compressor itself. If the compressor is kicking in and out then get a freon refill can from Walmart or an Auto parts store and add freon to the system until the compressor kicks in continuously.

I have electrical problem with AC compressor Blazer 2002. Don't run.


If the compressor clutch isn't locking and turning the compressor the first thing to check is the refrigerant level. If the system is low on refrigerant a safety switch opens the clutch circuit and prevents the compressor from running. The reason for this is that the lubricant for the compressor travels through the system with the refrigerant, so if the system is low the compressor can be destroyed from lack of lubrication.

Whine when air conditioner compressor engaged at lower speeds


If it is coming from under the hood(whine)then the ac compressor is either low on oil,or it is about to go out.Sometimes ac compressors will last a good long time,but sometimes they whine right before they lock up.So look for some ac compressor problems.Have a mechanic check it out,but it will most likely need to be changed out(compressor and components).

you should be adding the 134a to the system the low pressure switch is doing its job by not allowing the compressor to kick on, it wont kick on until there is enough 134a in the system to be above the preset pressure for the low pressure switch.
