Answer 4
Sounds like the Constant Control Relay Module (CCRM) is likely at fault, this module controls the A/C fan on the eng to come on when the A/C is being used, it controls the A/C compressor clutch which if the clutch don't engage, you'll get NO A/C. it also contols parts of the powertrain control module, specifically that part that increases eng rpm at idle when the A/C is operating so the added power needed by the compressor doesn't stall the engine. BTW this little jewel is well hidden up under the air intake filter canister. Easiest way to locate it is to just go thru the steps to replace the air filter And then go one step farther and take out the canister part of the filter apparatus. Hope this helps. I haven't tried it yet but some gomer on ebay offers to rebuild your ccrm for $65 with one day turn around. IF he can do it, shouldn't be too difficult. probably only looking for a piss poor solder joint anyway that finally gave out.once I get into mine I'll let you know. -
