2009 Chrysler Town & Country with 40,000 miles. Air conditioner will not blow cold air, only warm. The clutch is not engaging. Disconnected the clip which seems to go to the compressor and checked with volt meter. 11.5 volts after I turn on the key, indifferent of the AC on or not. Connector is tightly wedged between the compressor and the PS pump so I'm not completely sure if its for the AC.
Am I testing the connector for the PS pump or the AC compressor?
If PS, where is the connector for AC compressor?
I read some articles on checking the low pressure switch but they didn't give good details, only looking for corrosion. Is there a way to test it?
Also read some about direct wiring the compressor to see if the clutch will engage. Needed? How?
The connector seems to have the pins sunken inside and not sure how to get wire inside without touching the wires together except for splicing the wire on the back side of the connector. Any recommendations?
I've checked a few things but any help to understand what am I missing as to why the clutch may not be engaging would be very appreciated.
