Question about 1998 Ford Mustang

1 Answer

Hi \r\n my a/c has stopped cooling, the a/c will blow hot air though. i looked under the hood and noticed the compressor was not turning. i checked to see if there was power getting to the compressor and there was not. i do remember having this problem before and replaced the CCRM and it fixed the problem. now i thought it was the same again. i remember before i used a "jump" wire the first time from the blue/lt green wire to the compressor. i tried it again and it didn't work. i checked the blue/lt. green wire as well and no power as well. what could be wrong?

Pull the connector off the a/c pressure switch on the recevier dryer and use a juper wire in the connector. It should make the a/c clutch engage. Do not do this for more than 30 seconds though.

I have a 2000 GMC Jimmy (Diamond Edition) that is having intermittent issues with the A/C. It will turn on when the car starts in park, but sometimes when it is put into drive the light on the switch goes...

Could be the A/C relay under the hood in fuse box on driver side, temp selector, (try turning it bad a couple notches), or clogged orifice tube. If there is air in the system it will also cause the compressor to kick on and off. Check your charge with a cheap refill guage. (walmart, parts stores)

If the temperature control is on cool....sounds like you have other problems with AC. ( compressor not working, needs R134,) Check under the hood for a box that has fuses in it, their are also relays in it. Look for the relay marked AC.

First of all check the freon pressure, if the pressure is low the compressor clutch will not turn on. The pressure should be between 30-40 PSI.

If all your fuses are good and you could not jump the clutch to work. I would check to see if you A/C system is fully charged. If you are too low on refrigerant there is a low pressure switch that will stop the system from engageing the clutch on your compressor to stop the compressor from being run low on oil and refrigerant which could cause damage to it and the A/C system.

A/c blows out hot air

I had a similar problem with my Corolla. My compessor clutch wasn't engaging when I turned on the AC and the fuse was good. I suspected the worst and prepared to face a replacement of a compressor, but found out the fault was an AC relay switch.

This link from Autozone, will give you a picture and price of the switch:

My relay switch was located under the hood. Check your users manual.
I hope this is your fix... a compressor is costly!
Good luck...

start car.turn on air conditioner high cool .raise hood look to see if the compressor clutch is engaged and running.if yes your ac air door could be stuck closed or the air door vacuum actutator not receiving vacuum.a vacuum line is broken or off. or the control switch bad.that control the AC and heater mode. if compressor clutch is not engagged.check for power at compressor clutch.if yes compressor clutch coil open. or the air conditioner refrigerant R 134 is low take car to a private garage with a good reputation. they wont be expensive as the dealership.have them hook car air conditioner to a manifold gauge set to check your refrigerant low side and high side pressure.

A/C blows hot air

Hi, the first check you will want to do is on the a/c clutch. you want to make sure of its operational value. Turn the engine on and raise the hood. make sure the a/c button and controls are on as if you wanted the air to blow cool. while the a/c is in the on position, inspect the clutch action under the hood. the clutch should click in a cycle. this engages the compressor device. it should cycle on and off in a 3 minute interval. if this compressor clutch is not working and it is not clicking, this will be the main issue. a/c clutch failure.

Now, if the clutch is working and, it is cycling on and off in a quick motion, this Will confirm a low charge state and, you will need to recharge the system with a recharge kit or you can take to the local dealership or mechanic.

Ok, if the system has a good charge and the clutch and compressor are ok, this will confirm compressor failure. if the compressor cant do its job by compressing the refrigerant in a proper manner, it will not cool properly. it will spin but, it will not cool.

You will find the problem in one or all of the areas above. i recommend checking the clutch action first then, go from there. make sure the a/c in-dash switch is working as well. this is a problem spot.

Please rate and have a great ady:)
