1997 Jeep A/C failure

The A/C compressor will not run after parked under cover in Mexico for 7 months. There is no voltage at the compressor wires with the low pressure switch jumperd and the controls set to A/C. All fuse appear good. Can you help?

Air conditioner on my 2003 s 10 has a full charge but no voltage at clutch or pressure switch Fuses are all okay.

A/C compressor clutch get battery voltage from the A/C compessor clutch relay , location - under hood fuse box . Should be marked on inside of the fuse box lid (cover) Pressure switch - A/C pressure sensor . Get's battery voltage from the PCM - engine computer . 5 volt's is all it get's ,three wire sensor .

2006 Jeep Liberty ac not working,fuses are fine,relay good replaced low and high pressure switches refrigerant level is good still won't work

Check for battery voltage on the dark blue/yellow wire in the connector at the AC clutch with engine running and AC on. If no voltage, yank the AC relay and check for battery voltage on terminal 86 in the relay socket. If no battery voltage on that terminal, check fuse 21. If yes, check for ground on terminal 85 in the socket. If no ground, then PCM isn't commanding the AC clutch on. Check for voltage on the dark blue/yellow wire at the low pressure switch and good ground on the black wire. The PCM provides power to the low pressure switch which then goes to ground. The PCM is looking for a large voltage drop if pressure is above 34-38 psi. If pressure is below that, the switch will be open, so the PCM won't see a voltage drop and will prevent AC clutch operation. The high pressure switch should be closed at pressures below 270-330 psi

Compressor isnt turning at all dont know if i need new one or if i need new clutch how can i tell

The pulley on the compressor is always running when your engine is running, but the only time
it compresses the freon is when the clutch engages, if the compressor's pulley was not turning,
it would have already snapped a fan belt or your serpentine belt. voltage runs from your fuse box
thru your air condition switch on your dashboard to a low pressure switch that is located at the
accumulator a long cylinder,close to the firewall under the hood or close to the condensor, front
of the car. the switch detects freon pressure in the accumulator, if there is freon pressure, the switch
will stay closed and allow voltage to go to the compressor clutch to engage it and compress the freon,
if there is no freon pressure the switch will open, and there will be no voltage to air compressor, its a
saftey switch to keep your compressor from getting damaged.its possible that the switch could be bad
it may not have voltage at the switch, or it may be open because there is insufficient freon pressure.
check and make sure there is freon in the system.check for voltage at the low pressure switch if you have freon in your system and voltage at the pressure switch, set your ac on high, pull the molex off
the switch, and jump it out with a jumper wire, if the clutch engages and your car starts to cool, just
replace the switch. if the clutch engages but does not cool, then your ac system has some blockage
in the lines. if the clutch does not engage at all then it would be the compressor clutch. good luck!

Where's the pressure sensor switch for the Air Conditiner located.Looking for single wire (black) to compressor.Don,t see one under hood anywhere obvious

Most high/low pressure switches are located in low side line or at dryer. This sends signal voltage to holding coil (Stator) of compressor to engage clutch. Your local parts should have a manual or internet access to component location for ordering purposes.

My husbands 93 park ave ac compressor is not running, when he relplaced the ac relay it worked one time and then no longer works. There doesn't seem to be any power getting to the compressor, could there...

If it has the auto air functions.On the passenger side under glovebox remove the black cover under the dash and there is a hidden fuse block with a ac fuse. Check for this a very common issue. Also if the ac is fully charged you can unplug the low pressure switch located on the accumulator( silver canister located by the relays towards the firewall) and take a wire and place between the two terminals just make sure the compressor will does come on.If the ac is turned on and you jump that switch and the compressor does turn and ac starts working then a good possibilty that the low pressure may be bad. Would check the fuse first.

Compressor clutch wont engage. sometimes on sometimes off. now just off

Trace the clutch wires from the compressor clutch to the nearest plug that you can disconnect. With the engine running, and the AC set to max, check to see if the clutch is engaged. If not, unplug the clutch wires and check the voltage going to the clutch. If the voltage is around 12 volts or more, then your clutch is shot and you will have to replace the clutch and compressor (sold as one unit). If the voltage is low or zero, then your AC is not calling for the compressor to run...a pressure or temperature sensor in your AC is out. Hope this helps.

95 taurus AC no power to compressor. No voltage detected across 4-wire plug at compressor. Fuse under dash OK.

the systemis trying ot protece ieself for 2 reasons you have high pressure or low pressure with what you have told us here that you have low pressure which in turn means that you are low on freon or high/low pressure swich is bad ... which i doubt very seriously but it can happen id go back with the basics and start from there, Ithink that you are low on freon,thanks and I hope that this helps you.

No voltage getting to A/C Compressor. freon OK

The a/c relay or pressure switch,The relay is in the fuse box under the hood,the pressure switch is on the a/c line near the accumulator

A/c compressor wont come on unles you put a jumper wire to the b

I would check the pressure on the system first. If you have a leak in the system the pressure will drop and keep the compressor from cycling on ( keeps you from burning up the compressor) If the system is indeed holding pressure, the problem can be a compressor relay, on GM products this is normally under the hood close to the firewall. It also can be the A/C control module not funtioning. (Not sending voltage to the compressor clutch) On many of the newer systems the components( ie: clutch, hi-pressure switch, low pressure switch, relays) are already energized and the control module just completes the circuit to ground. In other words when you check for voltage at these items it will be present, even though the unit may not be engaged.

I want to know where it runs to. ( plug for my A/C compressor)

ok there are two wires

the black wire goes to ground.

the dark green/white wire goes to the power steering pressure switch. the other wire on that switch is dark green and it goes to the low pressure cycling switch. the other wire on this switch is light green and it goes to your controll head......... the a/c switch sends battery voltage down this wire, through the low pressure switch, throught the power steering pressure switch and down to the compressor.
