    Can you test the capacitor? More then likely it is bad.

The Main reasons that this will happen
1 - A bad run capacitor (silver or metal capacitor)
It’s either shorted, grounded or open.
If it’s shorted a lot of times it will bulge out, (sometimes slightly)
2 - A bad start kit ( plastic capacitor and Relay connected to it )
The capacitor is either shorted or open
The relay either has an open coil between terminals #1 and #5
Or the relay is stuck.
Any time you change the capacitor or relay you should change
the other, especially if they are over a year old.
3 - A loose, burnt or disconnected wire
4 - Wired wrong
5 Compressor is open (windings burnt open)
6 Low on charge not getting enough cooling back to compressor, (Feel top of compressor to see if it’s hot it shouldn‘t be)
7 Some compressors have a black plastic overload under the compressor cap which could be bad.

2001 Ford taurus #22 fuse (A/C clutch relay PCM keep alive power fuse) blows. Replaced A/C clutch relay....still blows even with A/C off


Remember that when you THINK the AC's off,it's really not.Almost all cars have the AC compressor actuate every time you set the dial to `defrost' or `mix' positions.
On a TAURUS there are only two positions(maybe three)which DON'T kick the AC on.On some cars,that's the 11 o'clock and 2 o'clock positions on the selector.

SO...........the odds are that the compressor magnetic clutch or wiring to it has shorted.Because you really have power going there even when you think you don't. (:^) don-ohio

Compressor runs and gets hot but fan will not kick on. Replaced the capacitor and that did not help. One side of coils gets hot, the other side gets cold, which seems normal. Just can't get the fan...


Don't run the compressor for any length of time without the fan operating. Is it possible that the fan must be replaced? Can you power the fan safely to test it?

Air condition blows hot air I bought a can with a gauge to boost it but I don't know where my air conditioner compressor is ?


You don't need teh compressor, you need the low pressure line for the Air Conditioner. here's the good news, that connector will only go on 1 side so you really don't have to worry about connecting to the wrong line. Normally you can find both lines on the passenger side of the vehicle in the engine compartment, there are 2 metal lines that go back to the firewall on the vehicle, one is small and one is slightly larger. The line you want is the smaller of the two, there should be a connector on it to connect your can and gauge to, normally it has a plastic cap over it. Remove the cap and with the engine running and Airconditioning controls set to Maximum connect your line to the connector check teh pressure reading and compare that to the information provided on the can of fluid you have then add fluid until you have the proper level. If your compressor is kicking in and out constantly add fluid till it kicks in and stays engaged then check the level to make sure you do not have it over full. If you over fill the system it will blow a seal and you'll have a major repair to do so be careful.

Turn my roof top ac on , fan runs but when compressor tries to run lights in camper dims 3 to 5 sec. don;t kick breaker off, any ideas?


You need to get a reading on the current draw of the compressor. Use a clamp on ampmeter to do this. Compare your reading with the data plate on the compressor. Your compressor may be getting ready to go out. You can also check the capacitor. If may be getting weak and need replacing. Another idea may be to install a hard start capacitor if the compressor is OK.
