Question Asked: A/C Comp-. does not come on
June 30, 2010, 09:25 PM
At first the A/C comp. was clicking on and off so I replaced what I would call a low pressure cut off switch, Napa called it a switch interruptor. After charging the system, I still had the same problem, The A/C comp. and fans coming on and off and the air inside the car is blowing warm. I started checking the A/C relay and replaced it with one from Napa. Now the A/C comp. does not come on at all even with the original relay ( the fans come on but not the comp.) I can make the comp. come on by removing the relay and placing a jumper wire across the terminals, when I do this it blows ice cold air inside the car. Can anyone offer any suggestions or help on what might be the problem or what to check next?

This is my 4th Chrysler made mini van, my first was a 1986 and I've had one ever since. They have all been great autos and have gotten better with each new year. When it becomes time to get rid of this one, I won't hesitate to purchase another one. The new ones look awesome and the the fold down seats make it easier to create storage space.
