Good Night; i have a 2005 Honda odyssey 3.5 vtec v6 motor and the ac compressor wont work. The system is charge correctly but the compressor wont engage. I turn the ac button on and off while the vehicle is running and it still won't engage. I am getting power to it, the pulley spins but the clutch won't engage.

    If you are getting power and ground to the compressor then the clutch coil is bad.

    they had issues with the clutch relay. Just so I know , so I can help with proper troubleshooting, HOW do you know it is fully charged? When the vans's running and you switch the A/C on , do the radiator fans come on?Does the climate control indicate A/C on (green light on some) Does your van have navigation? Those are just for starters questions reply on this post if I can help more.

    It was check with an a/c guage, yes the radiator fan comes on, yes the climate control indicator A/C light comes on, and no it don't have a navigation.

    Check for power from the clutch relay and test the field coil for continuity to ground. and another silly question just to be specific...the inside blower motor is working properly , right?

    Ok I am in a similar situation. I have an 05 odyssey and over the last week or so the air will blow cold then warm then go back cold. On Friday it startedonlyblowing warm no matter what we did. I bought adam of A pron. Guage reads 120 or so. I noticed the compressor wasn't turning on after running it for 30 straight mins. So the AC PRO wouldn't work either. I've checked the fuse and its good switched around the relays and no change. I can't imagine all 3 relays bad too. I changed the blower motor resistor no change. Now I've noticed that the fan speed won't change no matter what setting its on and also even when I hit off the fan keeps blowing. I'm very mechanical but know nothing about electrical? Help please
