This could be because you have a leak in you A/C system causing a loss of freon. When there is not enough freon in your system the A/C compressor will not engage, it will harm the compressor.

How do you engage the AC clutch to refill the system?

You don't need to engage the compressor clutch to recharge the system. In fact, you shouldn't engage it without refrigerant and oil in it, because the refrigerant carries the compressor oil in order to lubricate the compressor. But, to answer your question, you disconnect the low pressure switch, and run a jumper wire between the two female ends of the connector.

Already changed fuse and air conditioning compressor clutch assembly but no power going to cause the compressor to kick on to pull back the clutch so that compressor kicks on what could be the cause?

What specific kind of vehicle do you have? It does sound like the clutch may be bad, but we also need to know what you are working on. You need to run power straight from the battery to the compressor. If is still does not engage then you need to replace the compressor and clutch, they are dead. If they do engage, then you have a wiring or computer issue.

If the AC compressor clutch does not kick in and the relay and fuse are ok what could be the problem?

The clutch receives it's signal to engage from a pressure switch in the system. If there is insufficient refrigerant in the system the pressure switch will not close resulting in no power at the compressor clutch to make it engage.

What would be the first easy fix to warm air from ac?

check all A/C electrical connections, like the connector at the compressor.. make sure the compressor is trying to engage, should be an audible click when switched on, check fuses, also check pressure switch on coolant line.. it has a electrical connector on it also, and if coolant is low it will not let the compressor engage.

The A/C Compressor may not be charged with frion if the A/C Clutch does engage, or it may not engage due to fact it's not sending 12v to the electronic wiring. First start the engine and turn on the A/C, watch if the clutch on the compressor engages or not.

How do you engage 4x4 on 2003 Honda Pilot?

To engage the 4x4 manually (VTM-4), you would need to be in 1st, 2nd, or reverse gear. In those gears and while stopped, you can then press the VTM-4 button, and will engage 4x4. It will only be engaged when around 18mph or lower. Above that, and it will disengage. It will re-engage when it dips down to that speed again. To turn it off, you can just press the button, or shift to a higher gear Keep in mind that even with the button off, VTM-4 will engage occasionally when there's slippage.

You should have the system checked for the proper amount of freeon. The compressor will not properly engage if the system is low. Hope this helps.

Check the refrigerant pressure. There is a sensor that detects the pressure of the refrigerant. If the pressure is not high enough the compressor will never engage.

1992 Lexus ES 300 Air-conditioning compressor does not Engage?

You will have to figure out why: This the 90% of the time failur: Is there Freon in the system, if there is not a minimum pressure, usually 17 PSI, the compressor will not run. Is the compressor and clutch capable of working? Is the fuse in good shape.

The ac compressor won't engage from switch on your 90 shadow is there a relay in the system?

There is a rely on the drivers side fender. It is the second relay from the front of the car. If it won't engage usually it is that there is too low or too high pressure in the system. Most of the times it it just low on freon and a sensor will not allow the compressor to turn on.

How do you fix an air condiosoner pump because it does not spin or work?

Do you mean that the AC clutch does not engage the compressor? Or do you mean that the AC compressor won't turn even if the clutch is engaged? If the compressor is siezed and will not turn even if the clutch is engaged, the only choice is to replace the compressor. If you can turn the compressor by hand (understand that the belt pulley will turn freely with the engine if the clutch isn't engaged) but the compressor clutch isn't engaging, it might just be out of refrigerant. There is a sensor, usually somewhere near the receiver/dryer) that detects the "low side" refrigerant pressure. Once the refrigerant pressure at the sensor drops below a specified level, the compressor will not turn on. In other words, if the compressor clutch won't engage it might just be out of refrigerant.

What caused an air conditioning compressor to turn on or off?

Most automotive AC compressors use a cycling clutch compressor, where the clutch is engaged by pressure switches which will engage the compressor clutch when the pressure reaches a predetermined low level, and disengages it when it reaches a predetermined high pressure.

How is the compressor clutch engaged on the air con system?

When not engaged, the wheel spins freely. When the low pressure switch closes, it closes the electrical circuit to the compressor clutch. This actuates an electromagnet, which pulls the clutch in to engage it.
