Check the clutch cable behind the pedal, see if same cable is hooked to the clutch on the motor side, ask a friend to move cable from pedal side, and find out the cable that moves inside the motor.
Check also that cable is fixed into pedal backside.

If cable is OK, then the clutch disk it is stuck on its springs and stays opened. To fix this the clutch assembly must be taken apart, this is quite a challenging job for an inexperienced DIYer, better to take the car to a mechanic in this case.

Ac not working, air compressor clutch not engaging


Hi Adeyeri

Keep in mind that the Clutch won't engage for a few safety reasons.

Temperature inside vehicle
Temperature of compressor or pipes
Pressure inside pipes
Compressor jambed
Eg It's out of refrigerant Gas

You can momentarily engage the clutch by simply giving it +12v to the wire attached to clutch. Usually has a connector close by.
Or
If it has a Relay (click) in fuse box
You can by pass it with a jumper

A quick engage & disengage should allow you to detect possible problem.
But don't over ride the built in safety for more than about a minute.

Cheers
Hope this Helps

My clutch won't engage 1997 Honda civic


Clutch plate and pressure plate seem to be too weak to pull the car. To test the clutch plate, park the car on flat surface. Pull the hand brake up, start the car, depress the foot brake pedal, depress the clutch pedal, put the car in 1st gear, press the gas pedal and leave the clutch pedal at once, while keeping the brake pedal depressed.
Follow one of the two following statements:
1. Engine does not shut down and remain start. (Clutch plate, pressure plate and clutch bearing defective - Replace all as a set)
2. Engine shuts down. (Clutch system is OK and does not require any repair).

A/c clutch won't engage


Check your a/c fuse first you want to make sure you have power going to the a/c system If your a/c button light is on when you engage it you most likely have power. Second if your a/c system coolant is low of the recomended freon then so the compressor will NOT engage.This is a start!

Ac won't get cold anymore power to compressor but won't click on clutch won't engage possible problems are compressor or evaporator what do you think?


Has the Freon been checked with a gauge to see if there is enough Freon to allow the system to work. Low or no Freon will not allow the compressor to engage. The low pressure switch is most likely activated due to low freon, and will cause this condition.

Cannot charge system as the compressor clutch does not ingage ...it was working fine then I thought it must have a leak when it started blowing warm air instead of cold....tried to charge it....to no...


Most likely the switch that is causing your trouble is located on the comp. behind the clutch assembly, In most instences the clutch Assembly will need replaced. The switch engages and disengages the clutch. Most of the time these can not be bought by them thelves.

sounds as though there is a leak, check all connections on a/c lines, now you will need to see if the clutch is getting power, if it is then the clutch will need replaced, if not then check to make sure where the fuses and relay plug into are receiving power. Hope this helped Tim
