The wire that provides power to one of the accessory legs in the fuse box possibly has a blown fuse link.

Check you're fuse able links under the hood, after a short like that you probably have more than one dead fuse

04 navigator is blowing ac fuse 11, ac coil shorted, 3 different coils, can ac compress short the coils


How did you hook up the inline fuse to compressor and ground to compress ? Ground what ? Right at the clutch coil ? You have to be hooking it up wrong . The compressor can't cause the clutch coil to short or blow the fuse , even if the compressor were seized up . An before that would have the serpentine belt would burn up , squealing noise. applying B+ voltage in the relay socket ,pin 30 to pin 87 will engage the compressor clutch . If the fuse blows the wiring from the relay to the compressor clutch is shorted to ground . Look for rubbed through wiring harness .

Air conditioning compressor on my 98 Chevy blazer won't engage. The AC is fully charged. The compressor


the compressor isn't getting the pressure for the clutc to maintain after disengaging the short by removing paperclip. check fuse, relay, and the low/ high pressure lines. if the compreeor doesn't since the correct amount of gas charge and/ or receives it the clutch wont engage not sure about a weak compressor if it may be a contributor. will check back later short on time. I just had mine fixed 2001 chevy 4wd. it was the relay and charge.

My 2002 Monte Carlo a/c compressor has no power fuse are good but relay only has power on one leg. What do I need to do to get my 2 hot legs and grounds?


The ground on a compressor is usually the body of the compressor itself, which is then earthed to the engine. The supply to the relay coil should be at 12 volt DC or whatever voltage your car is. When the aircon is turned on, the coil should retract the contacts in the relay. The contacts are the on / off for the compressor magnetic pulley. The other side of the relay coil is to earth (Body of the car.) If there is power on one side but not on the other side of the relay contact, it means the relay is shot. If you connect wires from both sides of the relay, the compressor should engage. ( DO NOT join the coil wires, it will be a dead short! Join the supply wires for the compressor.

Ac not blowing cold, check main relays, has r12, jumpered and clutch kicks in. checked all fuses and relays swapped horn and ac OK... she has the push button ac controls.... thinking its something with...


there is a pressure switch on the ac drier that is the big silver can looking thing by the dash under the hood... if this goes bad the ac compressor will not kick on and the fans will not run when the ac is turned on... if the fans are not running at the same time of the ac compressor it will not blow cool..

A/C compressor clutch stays ingugae when switch is off


check the compressor clutch relay. The contacts may have fused together. If there is something constantly enegizing the coils then it is either a bad switch or a shorted lectronic component, usually a single transistor inside an electronic control box.

Volkswagen passat 96 AC relay location


You should never connect a 12volt to the compressor solenoid.unless you unplug it first, because on some cars the ac solenoid is driven by an electronic circuit. Semiconductors are very sensitive to excessive current. I once had to repair the computer on a mercedes because the other mechanic did that. Luckily I know how to repair electronic circuits, or they would have bought a 500 dollars computer the little chip that blew only costed a dollar fifty cents at radio shack,.LOL. Anyways back to your problem, Have you checked if there is a leak, and all the refrigerant might have leaked out? This would prevent the compressor from coming on. Along the ac line there is a switch, sometimes by the reciever drier, when the system looses refrigerant the pressure inside drops and that pressure switch disable the compressor. , and the compressor wont come on. This is to protect the compressor, because it will be damaged if you run it without refrigerant. Ac clutch solenoid is usually is not driven by relay, because an ac solenoid don't really take much current to to kick in, unless of course it is shorted. It would either be directly from the inside switch usually in series with the fan control or driven by a small transistor in a circuit, and the electronic circuit is driven by the ac controls inside. I think the problem with your ac is that it has no refrigerant thats why the compressor wont come on.
