The switch is either on the acccumulator or close to it. Just unplug it and short across the two wires. Don't run it this way for an extended period of time if it is low on freon as the compressor won't get lubricated and it will crater. GoodluckJoe

Locate the low pressure cut out switch, unplug the wire connector, using a paper clip jump across the two connections in the electrical plug. This will by pass the low pressure switch and allow the AC compressor to run. THIS IS A TEMPORARY PROCEDURE! Once you have filled the system with freon remove the jumper wire and plug the connection back in to the low pressure switch.

How do you check if the low pressure switch on a corvette 1977 is working?

Of which low pressure switch are you speaking? Engine oil pressure switch? If you're checking that, remove the oil pressure sending unit and temporarily put in an oil pressure gauge. If you're checking the AC low pressure switch, pull the switch from the AC low pressure line, Jumper the switch socket and see if the AC compressor comes on. If it does, you either have low refrigerant pressure or a bad switch. If you KNOW the pressure is up and everything else works, you have a bad switch.

Low on freon, faulty pressure switch, faulty clutch. Jumper the low pressure switch with a paperclip (can running, AC on), if the clutch cycles, it's either low on freon, or the low pressure switch is bad.
