The air conditioner does not work; the blower does not work. If I put voltage on compressor clutch, a/c clutch engages. I checked the blower and I put voltage on blower and it works too. Thanks in advance.
Do you

I am assuming system has been checked for Freon it may be bad pressure switch on front of firewall if system is low or to low of pressure to run you will run into this problem. Check fuses 22-23-24 two are inside truck one is under hood. Then check blower relay under hood as well.

When I turned on the compressor with voltage the a/c cooled very well. I will check the fuses; where is the blower relay under the hood? Right side next to accumulator box? How do I check the blower relay?
Thanks in advance.

The blower relay is in the pdc underhood with fuses. see link it still can be a bad pressure switch as well.

My motorhome is a 1990 Ford Chassis 27 ft. Kountry Star with 460 engine. It does not have a PDC under the hood, the fuses under the dashboard are okay, anything else, how can I test the a/c for no power to compressor and fan blower speed.

Well if you said it was motor home at first then I could have looked up correct diagram. It may not be factory air in that thing. Is it a van front end with the motor home attached? If what is called just a chassis then it won't have factory air in it and will be from another manufacturer

NO, Newmar Mfg. Co. Built it with a 1990 Ford chassis with the original Ford engine (460) and original a/c system and Ford auto trans.

Ok now that we know what we are dealing with again I am assuming system is full. Arrow points to the clutch cycling switch which is located on the accumulator. I t looks like a tall can where pipes go in it will have a large pipe for a/c going to it. Fuse 9 controls a/c. Jump the wire and see if compressor starts if not then it's a wiring problem or diode on compressor but in previous replies you said if you power up compressor it will work. If system is not full that is why compressor doesn't work and Freon has leaked out. You will have to refill system with R134 instead of R12 because 12 is very expensive

The a/c compressor is coming on after I replaced the accumulator switch. Yet, the fan blower does not come on with any speed on blower switch with a/c or vent on, if I connect voltage to fan blower under hood, the fan works on any speed.

That is either the relay or a bad fusible link it is on rh side of engine compartment above headlight. Links are attached to starter relay and should have 12v on both sides. Pic in next email

I have checked the fusible links and they have voltage on both sides; the relay has 4 wires, solid yellow, solid red, brown w/blue stripe and orange w/ blue stripe. What should the voltages on each wire with key on? Thanks

Yellow wire should have power then orange/red in pic you will see another fusible link blue if no power at yellow check that. Although relay could be bad, now that I remember that was a common failure on fords was the relay. But that was 30 some years ago. For me lol
