You actually have three sensors that can shut off your a/c on a raider. Low pressure, hot (overheating) engine, and one other (can't remember what it is called but I believe that it is behind your glove compartment.

Could be your AC control unit if its not a problem with your actual AC clutch. Go ahead and check all the fuses, if non of the fuses are blown then you probably need a new control unit

My air condition work only when I hot wire the compressor clutch. Otherwise it not engaging when I turn on the ac.


You have to insert a can of R134A refrigerant and hose on the low pressure port.
Normally it is the fatter of the two hoses coming from the compre3ssor.It should then kick in with the A/C switch engaged.
If not you may have a bad fuse,switch,compressor,or relay.

97 chevy suburban AC clutch won't engage pressures


Looks like the low pressure switch gets power from a 10amp ac fuse. Power then goes to the ac relay which is powered on by the ac heat controller on the dash. Power then goes thru the high pressure switch to the compressor. The ac relay is grounded to the body. Do you have power on the lite and dark green wires going into the relay and is it grounded ?

A/c compresser clutch not getting power


Since the AC compressor clutch will not receive power unless the system is sufficiently changed to circulate the oil that lubricates the system components you must verify the system is not low on charge which you have not mentioned has been done. Hook up a set of AC pressure gauges and verify the system has at least a 90% full charge of refrigerant.

Ac clutch not kicking on


ADD Freon. It's a R134 system and the pressure is too low. Trust me add Freon and it will work fine. With a low amount of Freon if you jump the low pressure switch at the accumulator it will be very cold but will not have enough pressure to kick on the low pressure switch.

My ac compressor on my dodge 2500 want engauge?


This could be a few things. The freon could be low, one of the switches (high or low pressure) could be bad, or you could have a bad compressor clutch. You can test the clutch by checking for battery voltage and ground at the two pin connector with the A/C on if you have both power and ground, then the clutch is bad. You really should start by hooking up pressure gauges to the A/C ports to check the pressures, and these vary depending on ambient temperature and whether the A/C compressor is engaged or not. I am willing to bet that the freon is low though and may be just as simple as recharging the system.
Hope this helps. Good luck!

Compressor on 96 dodge caravan will not start even after charging system with freon. does computer have to be reset


check for bad fuse under hood. also check for ac relay issue. also under hood . you will find a power dis. center under the hood. (just like a fuse panel)the system does use pressure switches, but check the fuse and relay first. if you have power and ground at the compressor and it does not engage, then the ac clutch is bad. you can check that at the two wires at ac compressor w/ a test light.

A/c has full freon but the compressor clutch wont engage. i have found that the plug going into the compressor is not getting any power. what could be the problem?


On the low pressure line of the ac you have a pressure switch which allows the compressor to come on once a certain pressure is reached, and it will cut the compressor off if the pressure is too high or too low. Look at your ac hose and find the switch *you will see wires connected to it* you may need to replace this switch. You can use a test light to see if you are getting power to the switch. You should check you fuses, and the ac relay witch is usually in a black plastic box under the hood.

The car has been sitting for almost a year. I started it today to drive out of necessity. The A/C clutch does not engage. How do i jumper across the pressure switch to add freon? Thanks, Ken


dont!!! an you start to add freon, itll start to cycle the compresor clutch until within safe operating pressure and then it will hold clutch in constant. charge liquid(with can upside down). if wont take freon in this manner than your more than low on charge. running low on charge will quickly destroy pump, especiallt those old harrisons. the refrigerant also cools the compressor. good luck and wear gloves-
