The high-pressure service gauge port valve is located on the compressor-to-condenser discharge line near the condenser fitting.

The low-pressure service gauge port valve is located on the suction accumulator outlet tube

i found this connection but there is to much pressure to make the connection
Expert:  Chuck replied 7 years ago.
Which connection the high pressure or low pressure? Are you using quick connect fittings on your gage?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
the low pressure and am using quick connect
Expert:  Chuck replied 7 years ago.
With the engine off the pressures should equalize and should be close to the ambient temp around the vehicle,you should be able to get it on this way.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

will not work, pressure is to much to make connection. will contact local dealer for service.

Expert:  Chuck replied 7 years ago.

With the engine off the pressures should not be that high there is nothing pumping so the pressures will equalize and will get to or near ambient temp. Just let it sit awhile before trying to hook it up. It must be something with your quick connect fitting. You should be able to get a fitting to connect without any problem up to 200 psi and there is no way yours can get that high with the engine off unless you are near a volcano or something.
