Unhook wire going to compressor. make a jumper wire and run from positive post on battery to wire going to clutch on compressor. if clutch engages, you have a blown fuse, bad a/c relay or the switch in dash may be bad. the main fuse box is located in engine compartment.

94 Chevy 2500 Clutch Engagement?

You probably have a hydraulic clutch. A hydraulic clutch has both a master and a slave cylinder. The slave cylinder engages/disengages the clutch plate. You might be low on clutch fluid in the master cylinder, or the system may need to bled similar to bleeding brakes. Worst case is you need a new clutch, pressure plate, and throwout bearing. They should all be replaced when doing a clutch job.

Hi, I just bought an 04 ram 1500 and the a/c

First of all check the fuse/relay panel under the hood for a blown fuse or bad a/c relay. If all is good there,then start the truck,turn on the a/c control with the fan on. Go to the outside on the passenger side of truck,look on the a/c line next to the accumilator and you will see a pressure switch with two wires connected to it. Unplug the switch and install a short jumper wire into switch. If the compressor clutch comes on then it's telling you that the system is low on freon. If not possible cause would be defective switch or the compressor clutch is bad. replace items as needed. hope this will help.

Hi, I just bought an 04 ram 1500 and the a/c compressor wont engage, any advice on troubleshooting? Thanks in advance, Steve

Check system for freon, does compressor clutch have power to it? first off check all fuses for power on both sides of terminals, check for power at a/c relay and check relay (you can do this by using another relay from like the horn to see if the a/c one is good) then unplug compressor clutch connector start vehicle and with test light see if connector on vehicle side has power on one side of connector. if so then jumper wire from one side to the oter and see if compressor runs

Airconditioner compressor (clutch) on 2001 chrysler neon 2.0 does not activate when turning on a/c. a) bypass of a/c relay in engine comparment control box causes clutch to engage b) fuse is not blown. c)...

The problem turned out to be a blown fuse labelled EBL Clutch, located in the instrument console (side panel in the dashboard next to steering wheel on a RHD model).

I downloaded the manuals of the Neon and it advised a sequence of checks to be done:
1. Test High Pressure switch located on compressor - check that the switch w/o/ cable gives a closed reading, then test with bypass in cable.
2. Test Low pressure switch located on accumulator, ( I could not find this switch). Bypass of this switch should engage the compressor clutch
3. I discovered the blown fuse when trying to activate the rear window heater and saw that the light on the switch did not activate - went looking for the fuse for this device and then found the EBL Clutch, really by accident. Shows you how confusing an abbreviated label on a fuse can be and that it does not always support the significance of it.

Other observations:
1. A/C compressor cannot run non-stop and must be controlled by the A/C controller. Hard wiring the clutch and running the engine for a few minutes led to the compressor shuddering and then discharging some gas through the saftefy valve. Normally this power supply would have been interrupted by the high pressure valve.
2. Release of coolant gas from the high pressure safety valve located on the compressor may indicate a faulty high pressure switch, but the primary or underlying reason may be due to a blocked Dryer in the A/C system.
3. The Daimler Mercedes Neon Agents, and an A/C company and an auto electrical company all attended unsuccessfully to this problem. No discredit meant in any way, it just shows that the incorrect label here makes solving such an ordinary problem very problematic. If any advice can be given to the Agents, read the manual.

Cannot locate where the a/c clutch cycle switch is... there is no power in the wires to the clutch and fuses are okay.

The a/c clutch is attached to the front of your a/c compressor. It is the part that your serpentine belt runs on. It is either engaged or not based on the demand of the a/c system. It will not run if it senses low pressure in the freon supply line so you might try having the system checked for proper fill before replacing the clutch.
