Air conditioner quit this last fall, was told the compressor clutch had failed. Had new compressor/w clutch, drier, and valve replaced. Mechanic said the compressor installed okay but when he tried to charge it, it got hot and could not fully charge the system. He said the condensor fan was not working, it did not come on when the air conditioner came on. He indicated that was what caused the failure to begin with, but he did not have analyzer to check what was actually wrong with the fan. Checked the fuses and relays, not them. Any suggestions?

If the fan motor OK and fuses
check and suspect relay module
located behind the left headlamp assembly
If you raise the vehicle you can access it from underneath
its on the left hand side of the frame. Has 4 wires but does not look like an old and typical relay.

Sounds like a stupid question, but is the left front headlight the drivers side or the passgengers side?
