Re: compressor connector

I jumped the presssure switch and the comp started. Finally! So, I ohmd the resistance and got 0.03 ohms. Engine off. Anyone know what ohms a good switch would show? This was the only way for me to get the comp to kick on, by jumping the switch.

Re: compressor connector

OK, I didnt have much choice so I did that and installed the comp. Now I added just a can of gas (12 oz) and comp dos not kick on. PSI is 90 or so. Shouldnt the comp start/engage with 90 psi? I dont know what else to do. I did try to start it by jumping the relay with no luck. help appreciated as al...

Re: compressor connector

In other words, can I rewire the new 3 wire comp so that the thermal protector is directly in line with the hot wire just like the old comp?

compressor connector

People, 2001 civic ex, got the new compressor, car taken apart and found out the new comp connector has 2 black and one red wire, and the connector is different. My original one has only one wire and went directly to the thermal protector. Can I cut off the connector and somehow make it work? I gues...

Im ordering a new comp. Meanwhile, I am not using the ac as more damage can occur.

Re: Strange PSI's in AC system, no cold AC

I don't know its specs and how to test it, unfortunately. Can you see a wire going to the compressor's back and ending in some kind of probe? That probe is the thermal switch i'm speaking about. I see a wire going from the clutch to compressor, then going to the FRONT of the comp, clipped onto a cl...

Re: Strange PSI's in AC system, no cold AC

Good to know, Al. I wouldnt mind gambling on a switch- know where it might be? And once I find it any way to test it with an ohmmeter?

Re: Strange PSI's in AC system, no cold AC

If i'm not mistaken he has a Sanden scroll. In that case it's likely the compressor body's temperature switch, either misbehaving or doing what it's supposed to do. Might be a good time to have a pro service the system and rule out any undercharge/overcharge condition (or leak). I didnt know one ca...

Re: Strange PSI's in AC system, no cold AC

Clutch/Pulley smooth with a/c off? If so compressor is toast. Can't turn locked up pistons. Good tip, Tim. Im trying to remember- when the belt was off and I was removing the pulley (clutch) I was trying to turn it to pop it off and yes, it was sometimes hard to turn the pulley so that would mean t...
