So what are your ac pressures like?If the ac system is low on charge/pressure it wont turn on also if the pressure is too high also the compressor will turn off.

If you have no pressure the compressor wont turn on you cant use a test light on newer cars to test for parasitic draws like that anymore.

Also iam sorry we dont do texts or phone calls its strictly thru the posted questions. It sounds like it low on charge or out of charge in the ac system. Look around and see if there looks like any oil build up on the ac hoses etc where dirty has collected indicating you might have a leak.

Again if the ac system doesnt have enough pressure in it the computer wont allow the compressor to turn on. Also go back and read my last two posts I asked you to do something in one of them.

Checked for oil on lines and compressor I found the shadier valve on the drier was jammed opened, which would lose all the Freon. I will replace valve and try to inject dye in system to check for leaks.

Replaced valves charged enough for compressor to engage had to run a jumper wire from pos batt to get the compressor to engage it did engage. I checked all the fuses no voltage to compressor blower motor. What is customary for donation?

The donations are whatever you want to donate. Iam confused you said you added enough charge for the compressor to turn on?Then you said you jumped the ac compressor to make it come on?Then you said you have no power to the blower motor and the compressor? Also was the ac system empty? How much charge did you add?

The low side 30 high 120 it was leaking so bad I could not get a good reading. It was leaking at the dryer and at the heater core it was inside could have been the expansion valve.
