View Full Version : No power at compressor with A/C turned on

When I turn on the A/C, nothing engages. I checked for voltage at the fans and the compressor and I get nothing.
I've checked fuses and relays they all appear fine.

I don't know about the voltage, but are you sure it has a full refrigerant charge? They are designed to not work if there is none in it.

It's charged. It's been charged since last year and has held.
I guess the next thing to do is trace the compressor wire back to a source? I mean I imagine it's not getting power because of a safety switch being open
I'm going to have to look for an electrical schematic and start checking for power

Have you tried to crudely test the clutch on the compressor yet by hot wiring it for a second to see if it engages? I would start with the a/c knob/switch in the dash first.
