Trying to recharge my A/C in chevy tahoe 2000 cant find the valve where i need to attach to.


The low pressure side port is located somewhere on the 'thicker' plumbing vs. the 'thinner' plumbing coming off of the compressor.

The pressure should be 25psi to 45 psi when the compressor is running.

You can't connect the low pressure hose with a can of r134a on the wrong side (high side vs. low side) because the ports are a different diameter (size).

It may be on the accumulator as well, the canister looking part of the a/c plumbing.

Air conditioning compressor not getting power on 96 Chevy Tahoe


Freon is what you are missing, our more specificly a refigerant charge that exceeds 45psi on the low side pressure line. This system has two pressure switches, a high side cut-out switch mounted on the rear of the compressor, and a low side or pressure cycling switch on the suction line.
Jump the low side switch contacts to ensure the electronics are sound for this system. If the compressor cycles, you know the system is low on a refrigerant charge. Turning on the AC is a request, and certain criteria must be met before the system operates as designed. Good luck
