Question about Sanyo STW1223H2 12000 BTU PTAC AC - Heat Pump With Backup of Electric Heat Air Conditioner
What you will be looking for (in your engine compartment) looks almost like a large valve stem that you would see on a tire. It will probably have some kind of plastic cap on it.
It shouldn't be that difficult to find. You may want to search for an engine compartment diagram for your make/model/year vehicle.

SOURCE: compressor not turning on
is the compressor actually turning over ?? if not check the contactor, or capacitor is actually ok...
if it does turn over, are the stop valves open ??

The compressor cutting and out is a good sign that the system is trying to work. Usually when the compressor cuts in and out after a few seconds, it means that the system is not fully charged and more refrigerant is needed. It's a good idea to purchase a gauge that measures the amount of charge in the system. The gauge looks like an air gauge, and they are not very expensive. That way you will know how much more of a charge the system needs. The gauge hooks up to the low pressure valve, just as the charge hose does.

The compressor is not starting either because:
1. The compressor has gone bad
2. The system is low or out of refridgerant. There may be a slow leak, when there is no refridgerant in the system the compressor will not start.
Re-charge the system with appropriate refridgerant, if the system has a charge already or holds a charge when you charge it then the compressor should start.
If not the compressor could be bad, sometimes you can get a hard start kit instead of replacing compressor. If the system does not hold a charge then you have to find and repair the leak before anything else...
Good luck. Please give good rating, it meens a lot to me....Feel free to contact me again...

check the thermo control amp, it is a sensor that keeps the evaporator from freezing. I had that problem on my 2000, it's a common nissan problem, google nissan ac problems.

I don't know how the rules are in Japan but in the USA you have to have an CFC certification from the EPA to buy refrigerant unless it's the little cans to recharge your car a/c. There are other reasons for the air to be warm also. Like the compressor not running.
