1998 Ford Escort ZX2 - Air Conditioning PROBLEM!
Air conditioner blower blows luke warm air. I jumped the compressor
straight off the battery, it worked, so the compressor is good. I tried
jumping it from the "low-side" but got no results in the compressor turning
on. Any answers?
Is there an airconditioning relay in this car? If so its hidden. THANKS GUYS
make sure ther is a full charge of R-134-A (freon), also the escorts has
had a few problems with the 4 wire hi side switch in the past
OK. I'll check that out. But yes it does have a full charge. ANYONE ELSE?
Replaced the switch...still not working :( PLEASE HELP ME OUT!
how did u check if u have enough? the car has a minimum pressure required to activate the compressor clutch.
can someone get me the information on the "minimum pressure" ?
I believe it has a 1lb and 1/2 in it. I checked using a pari of gauges...
the gauges won't tell you any info you need to know w/o the compressor running. conversely, if you're saying that either of the gauges said 1-1/2, you're low...
1 and 1/2 sounds right.. so u have a/c gauges? most system requires 30 psi
to start the clutch.. if u are really sure u have refrigerant and enough
psi, u can try to bypass the low pressure switch. its on ur accumulator.
green/red and orange wire.
edit: hmm i have two different gauges here.. it only tells me pounds of pressure (psi) and refrigerant temp. make sure u are reading ur gauges correctly.. or the above will damage ur compressor.
what i'm saying is that, unless billab0n98 emptied out the system and put 1-1/2 lb. in there, there's really no way to tell how much is in there w/ the compressor not running...
OK, its charged. I think i may have to replace the relay module.....just gotta find it
