    Hi, try bypassing the pressure switch on the low pressure line. The compressor will not come on if the system is low on refrigerant. If the bypass works, recharge the system to restore proper function.

Kia picanto drive time ac good cooling traffic stop time not cooling


check that the fan for the condenser is working
with the vehicle moving the air flow will keep the compressor pressure down but when stationary and no air flow the gas pressure will go too high and the high pressure switch will stop the compressor
have it inspected by an accredited ac specialist shop

Lost blower motor and A/C compressor at same time, the 60amp fuse in distribution box is good, was adding frefrigerant to system then noticed compressor not running and no blower MTR either


you have probably put in too much gas and the compressor has shut down due to the high head pressure switch activation
ac systems only have a set amount of gas required to operate and more is not better
if you had to add gas then there is a leak in the system
most systems need the blower to be switched on to operate the ac compressor , check the blower fuse as it is separate to the 60 amp fuse
have an accredited ac specialist shop check the ac for leaks and correct pressure

1994 chevy 1500 ac compresssor stopped working fuse is good


couple of reasons
there is no gas in the system and the low pressure switch has stopped the ac compressor
there is too much gas in the system and the high pressure switch has stopped the compressor
there is a blockage in the tx valve and the high pressure switch has stopped the compressor
The climate control module has failed and stopped the compressor
I am thinking a leak and no gas.

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 ?

I get no power at the ac compressor clutch.


Take 12 V Positive wire direct from battery to wire from clutch.
Does The Clutch Engage
If No Clutch Needs Replacement
If Yes ,Does Your Vehicle Have Climate Control If Yes This is Probably The Fault

Ac not working ac compressor not getting power


Check the a/c fuse in the under hood fuse block. If the fuse is good swap the a/c relay with one of the other relay that is the same part number in the fuse block. If the compressor still will not turn on than you will need a high end scan tool to look at the a/c data in the PCM.

AIR CONDITIONER QUIT WORKING


Pop the hood, start the vehicle and turn the AC on. Watch the compressor, it should have a center that rotates on an off and you should hear a clicking sound. This is the compressor clutch you are looking at. If the compressor is not doing this, check the fuses for the AC. If the fuses are good, then most likely the high side sensor switch is not working, therefore the clutch never engages and the air never gets cold.

Try that and get back to me, ok?

This vehicle has an electrical Short or a bad Ac compressor. Check the wire that connect to the Ac clutch its mounted on the top of the compressor. Sometimes the insulation on this wire become broken and if it touches any metal parts of you vehicle will short out the system and blow the fuse. Make sure that you are using the right amp fuse first. Good Luck
