Eclipses have a Anti Theft Feature on the Stereo.

Its a simple fix. Contact your local dealership and they can give it to you by looking up your cars VIN number. To enter the code (its 4 digits) you simply use the 1-4 programed station buttons to cycle the numbers. Once the code is displayed, hold the FM button and it should work. I recommend writing the code down somewhere, any time you leave the battery disconnected or get a jumpstart you'll likely have to reenter it.

As for your AC Compressor not working, I recommend checking the fuses.

My 1997 lincoln town car ac compressor won't engage it is full of free on and when I push the max ac button the engine fans kick on but ac compressor won't why?

What have to test the electrical circuit to answer that question . Could have bad compressor clutch , the relay that supply's battery voltage to the compressor clutch could be bad , open wiring to the compressor clutch or somewhere else . Looking at wiring diagram's an using a DMM - digital multi-meter to test the electrical circuit's is the way to find that problem . Do you know how to do that ? Do you know anything about automotive electrical ?

Radiator fans won't come on while van is running

Start the car and turn on the AC to max. Do either of the fans run with the AC compressor engaged? Also, there is a temp sensor for the fan circuit but I don't know exactly where it is located on that vehicle.

Cooling fan won't come on when I turn on the AC

Your bigger problem is the compressor not kicking in. The cooling fan is not coming on because there is not enough high side pressure to turn the fan on. I would start by checking power to the compressor, fuses and relays would be inspect. Check to make sure there is the proper charge of refridegerant in the system.

Compressor and fans do not turn on until rev engine

I passed this question the first time I read it, so I will take a stab at it now.
The fans don't come on until the compressor has pumped the freon pressure up to say 150 or 200 psi. And the compressor clutch has to have voltage to engage the clutch.
I wonder if the clutch is going and needs 14 volts instead of 12 to engage ? Or the relay that powers the clutch ?
Speeding up the engine would increase voltage from the alternator.
This is assuming the serpentine belt is tight and everything else is working correctly.
I think I would swap the relay with another and put a meter on that circuit to the ac clutch to see what it takes to engage it.

Idle increase with a/c engagement

Easy easy fix and very common. Disconnect the battery for about an hour. Then drive around for maybe 15 min with the AC and or Defroster OFF. This will solve your problem, been there done that. Your computer learned some bad habits with the dirty throttle body. Still thinks it's dirty, need to unhook the battery again and let it relearn the correct settings.

1986 chevy S10 has no power (12v) at fuse box on the fuse for ac clutch. checked both sides of fuse to ground 00v. ac/heater fuse 12v both sides (fan) works fine

hello, check all fuses, and relays, make sure wires to ac is not broke or has been pinched, sometimes you can run hot wire from battery, to compressor, touch hot side of plug in on comp wire see if it will kick on, if so sounds like a short, if compressor dont kick on with hot wire run to it, tap the out side of comp clutch and see if it kicks on, these compressors will not kick on any way if they are low on freon, once freon is full it should work.

If you have a low freon warning you will need to unhook the battery to reset the system before the compressor will run.
