high pressure cycling switch

germanc5 on Thu September 06, 2007 9:10 PM User is offline

Year: 2000
Make: chev
Model: suburban
Engine Size: 6.0 L
Refrigerant Type: r134
Ambient Temp: 80
Country of Origin: United States

i bought a new compressor from an online retailer. got oil in it , installed it only to notice there is not a high pressure cycling switch on the new compressor . ok no big deal . i'll take it off of the old one. well the old one has 82000 + miles on it in michigan and doesn't want to come off>(at least not without breaking first). so still no big deal i'll get a new one. no luck at auto zone. chev dealer has one they say, but when i get there its not the right fit to the compressor. (the plug to the wiring harness is correct however). so i remove the hpcs (in pieces) now i find one at the car quest . it fits the hole in the comp. but has the wrong plug. does anyone think i can change to the one that fits the hole and splice in the plug for the switch??help!!!!!

The switch on the rear of the compressor is AcDelco part number 15-2830 and is available with the proper connector. here is a vehicle list of all the GM's that use the same switch..Hope this helps..

hey chick

i found that switch all over town today. the only thing is the connector on my truck is oval. the one on the new switch is round. should i find this connector at the junkyard and splice it on or continue to look for the oval switch? should i try to look up something else thats on the list for same parts. thanks for your help.

As long as you have a "two wire" switch, use any connector that fits..Splice them in is fine..Hope this helps..

Great News........The switches for this compressor (Denso) are different specs from the standard GM HPCO switch located in the H series compressor. The switch is NOT SERVICED by GM....the only way to get the switch is to purchase a new compressor from GM. CAn ya believe it....any way....drop me a contact and help may be available...have to get back to the office...but think there are a few of them lying around.

That sure would explain the difference in the plug, I just checked and saw it fit to 2007, should have checked further on the "compressor type"..Good catch ice...

See if the compressor has the hose manifold mounted like the one in this picture since they list the HT6 along with this one..never saw one myself...

Yep, this is the ONE!!!!
Used this one with the switch for a few years....then when they changed to the dual zone units..they removed the switch.....who knows?
The real issue...why spec the switch and then not make them available.....buy an entire new compressor...dealer item only...to get the darn switch....come on....I know the General is losing some money...but of all the idiotic things... had several brand new Denso compressors returned for warranty...never installed....simply because they could not get the switch....
