Air Conditioning

I have replaced the fuse, relay and the ambient temperature sensor........and still NO air. The blower and controller module are new also. Still the
clutch on the pump is not engaging. Unless theres some other trick. I'm at a loss???

clutch will not engage if there is not enough freon or w/e the gas is called in the system, to prevent it from burning out. It also will not engage if its overfilled. You can test if it works by taking a wire from your + battery post and jumping the terminal on the condensor. If it engages when you jump it, you know the condensor is working, if it doesnt, then you need a new one. Obviously you only want to jump it for a second just to see if it engages.

If you have the auto climate controls, you can run a self diagnostic. In case you do, here is a link to the instructions.

The procedure starts on page 37.
