Question

Visitor, 6.5L V8 Diesel Turbo, Carl Junction, MO, June 23, 2010, 13:36

Everything works on the AC settings except compressor will not come on. I have tried bypassing the valve on the dryer by using a paper clip to see if it is low on freon, doesn't work. Have one hot wire at the compessor but nothing works.

    Have a shop check for low freon in the system because the pressure switch won't power up the clutch until the proper amount of freon is in the system and you can check AC service prices here http://repairpal.com/estimator?car_type_id=5411 or locate a repair shop here http://repairpal.com/directory?address=64834&car_brand_names=GMC
