Hi I see you are having some trouble. I will try to help.
The white with red wire runs to the A/C compressor relay. The first thing that needs to be checked is fuses. Then you need to check the relays. A lot of times you will find 2 of the same relays in the fuse box so that you can swap the a/c relay relay with the fuel pump relay for example. You can tell if they are the same by looking at them and comparing the part numbers that are on them. If you would please check the fuses and then swap the relay if there is another identical relay and let me know what you find. This is some simple things to check before we get into running down wires. But I have access to the schematic and I will help you diagnose your problem but it will more than likely require the use of a test light or volt meter.
The relay should be under the hood in the box behind the air filter housing. The fuse should also be in that box. I will try to locate the exact fuse for you.
The fuse is in the main fuse box. I believe this is under the hood as well. The fuse for the A/C compressor is in position #5 and is a 25 Amp fuse. Check these out and let me know what you find. Thanks
Ok have you checked to see if the a/c relay has an identical one you may swap with?
Yes that stands for compressor relay.
Give me a minute let me look at the schematic.
I think the problem is the relay is there another relay in the box that you can swap with the a/c relay?
ok remove the relay and see if the yellow and green wire has power when the a/c switch is on and see if it loses power when the switch is off. this will verify that the signal is being sent to the relay
yes. I will still be here to help. I wish I could upload you a schematic but I can't do that from my program. But here is how the relay works. There are 4 wires at the relay. The yellow/green is signal from the heat/ac unit this could be power or ground use your meter to determine. the pink goes to the ecm(computer) to let it know to idle the engine up to compensate for the load of the compressor. The red/black should have power at all times and the white/red is power going out to the compressor. Let me know what you figure out. thank you for using just answer.
Hi there were you able to test the wires?
