2003 Kia Sorento Question: AC compressor not getting power. Have checked fuses. What else could it be?



, 3.5L V6, Chesterfield, SC, June 16, 2010, 06:21

Mechanic confirmed no power to compressor. There is no blown fuse and the compressor appears to be connected appropriately. Is there a switch that has the on/off capability>

    your mechanic cannot find the cause? you need to take it to someone who can help you. there are many resons, such as low freon, low pressure switch, compressor relay, dash control malfunction or a defective compressor.
    take it to another shop that can give you the answer you need.

    would bet that it is the low pressure switch. It is a bi-metal switch like the ones used by ford in the 70's.
