When I press the A/C button, the light comes on steady. However, the compressor clutch does not engage, and obviously no cooling takes place.
I have checked the fuse in the fuse box under the hood, and no problem there. I am not getting any trouble codes from the OBD II diagnostics.
Some of my research indicates a possible problem with the magnetic clutch relay, however I have not been able to find that relay's location in the car. It does not appear to be one of the ones in the fuse box under the hood.
Any help on the following would be appreciated.
1. Thoughts on why the compressor clutch is not engaging?
2. Location of the magnetic clutch relay?
3. Any other troubleshooting or investigation tips?
The A/C was working fine recently, so I do not believe it is a Freon problem. In addition, when I turn on the A/C, the compressor clutch does not engage and the compressor does not turn. I do not see how low Freon would keep the compressor from turning.
have the same problem?
