2002 Kia Sedona EX: freon..a compressor relay switch that I can jump

This answer was rated:

I need to add freon for my 2002 Kia Sedona EX. The compressor is not coming on so that I can add the freon. Is there a compressor relay switch that I can jump so that I can add the freon? Thanks.

Yes there is a switch in the low pressure line (sorry I don't have a picture). If you can't find it you can always put power to the compressor with a jumper wire from the battery.

 

 

Thanks,

The compressor terminal is hard to get at. Do you know where I can find the compressor relay switch? Thanks

Bottom right of the relay box (see picture).

I found (30). Do I jump it to (85), (86) or (87). See below. Thanks again.

You should have power at 85. You can test this with a test light or meter. Then jump 85 to 30 to engage the clutch.

 

 

Thanks,
