Bought this car and the AC is not blowing car. Here is what I have:
AC button lights up on the inside panel.
it's a tight space but was able to turn the compressor clutch with my hand and it turns.
When trying to add Freon clutch doesn't kick on, but shows around 50-60 psi.
i checked the fuse and relay and fuse is good, relay clicks when removed and installed, used another relay from the other ones in the box, no change, am trying to find out if the AC compressor is bad.

How do I go about jumping it from the relay box, to see if it turns?
Do you

Welcome to 2CarPros.

There should be one power wire to the AC compressor clutch. Simply check to see if there is power being sent to it when you turn the system on. If there is, then suspect a bad clutch.

Here is a list of common causes on this vehicle. See if any of them could be related.

- The engine speed is above 6016 rpm.
- The evaporator temperature falls below 2 C - to prevent freezing.
- The coolant temperature goes above 118 C - to protect the engine.
- The AC system pressure goes above 30 Bar to protect the system.
- The AC system pressure goes below 1.6 Bar - to protect the system.
- The accelerator pedal is fully depressed (continuous full pedal demand) for more than 5
seconds.
- The accelerator pedal is depressed rapidly (instantaneous full pedal demand) for more
than 2 seconds.
- The engine speed is below 500 rpm (engine stall).
