You either have a faulty Low Pressure Cut-Off Switch, or you are low on Freon. Have you freon checked, if the freon level is fine replace the Low Pressure Cut-Off Switch.

Ac low pressure switch

coolant has nothing to do with the ac system
coolant goes in a radiator
gas goes in the ac system and should be only installed by an accredited ac specialist shop using the correct equipment
If you have to add gas then there is a leak in the system
second point , when you turn on the ac compressor , and start to add gas ,when the gas pressure is sufficient then the ac compressor will switch on
Best to have the specialist do the job for you

I was told by A/C guy I have a short somewhere to the high pressure switch. something is not kicking on the compressor. another mechanic said I need a new computer. what do you think

go with the ac guy
there are systems that prevent the ac compressor working
high pressure switch which cuts the ac clutch if the head pressure goes too high
low pressure switch which cuts power to the ac compressor if there
is no gas in the system
climate control systems which cut power when the ac is not required
fuses to the ac system
get a better explanation or seek advice from other ac mechanics

Honda del sol 1994 ac is heating normally but when put on cold no air is coming out and no noises at all????

Probably a bad compressor, AC is a setting that runs the air thru the condensor, compressor, and evaporator, when the compressor goes out then they whole system shuts down.

Rattling coming from front of engine. Comes and goes. Seems like ac compressor or fan?

There is a known problem with the bearing on the AC compressor going out. I had to replace my compressor due to this. However it is possible to replace just the bearing, but takes some know how.

Ac compressor doesn't turn on

make sure that the fan is on as well as the ac switch. There are other switches that turn the compressor clutch off when something goes wrong. There is a high head pressure switch that turns off if there is excessive pressure generated from blockage or excess gas and another switch that closes of when there is insufficient gas in the system. Have a ac mechanic check the system for leaks as that is the most common problem.

How to remove & bypass AC compressor on 94 ford F250 W/460

You must buy an AC delete pulley assembly, it goes where the AC pump is now and then you use the same belt. You can order it from the dealer or buy them on line from other suppliers.

When ac compressor engauges you can notice strain on engine . Shortly after that a line came off condenser with a loud bang.The line that broke goes from compressor to condensor. Now compressor is noisy....

The head pressure got too high on the ac system,when you have the ac compressor replaced,and it`s components,make sure the condenser is flushed out good,and that the cooling fans are working with the ac,they need to come on with the ac,if this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.
