Hi there,

The switch is mounted on the liquid tank out on the condenser. I am sending a diagram to help you locate the switch.

is this in the engine compartment?
Expert:  Mike V. replied 3 months ago.

The condenser is in front of the radiator, the close up is showing you the condenser, I would probably try removing the grill to get decent access to it.

There is also low pressure switch in system
Expert:  Mike V. replied 3 months ago.

Sorry, I can't do phone calls.

Is that a question or a statement?

Is any way to force clutch to engage?
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Can you force clutch to come on?
Expert:  Mike V. replied 3 months ago.

Sure, you can run a power wire directly to the wiring harness and the clutch will kick on.

This is a very complicated system. The pressure switch is the only pressure switch on the system, it does both high and low pressure. Either will prevent the clutch from coming on.

If the condenser fan isn't working then the pressure will be to high and the clutch won't come on. If there isn't enough freon in the system then the clutch won't come on due to low pressure.

If the intake temp sensor inside isn't working then the compressor won't come on when it has the auto air system. If the ambient air temp sensor isn't working, then the compressor won't come on.

As you can see it's pretty complicated. If you don't know how much freon is in the system then that is probably the place to start.

OK condenser fans are working
This switch has 3 wires BLACK, PINK AND BLUE
What I need to connect to force clutch to come on?
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
there is lots of coolant in the system - no leaks
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Where are intake and ambient temp sensors?
Expert:  Mike V. replied 3 months ago.

We are not looking for coolant, we are looking for freon.

If it's low, then the compressor isn't going to come on.

Intake sensor is inside the cabin where the little vent is next to the steering wheel ambient is out at the bottom of the condenser to the passenger side under the bumper.

After all your threats, this is as far as I am willing to go with you on this.

If you would like I will be happy to open it up to the other experts, but I think it's fairly saf to say no one else will reply.

OK - I am sorry trying to resolve this today and I do not have money to take it to the shop
Freon pressure is normal - no leeks
Which wires I need to jump on the pressure switch (black, pink and blue)
Expert:  Mike V. replied 3 months ago.

According to the wiring diagram the sensor stays in a neutral state until the pressure is to high or to low, then it sends a signal to cut the a/c via the communication lines and the IPDM. Jumping this isn't going to help.

Not sure how you can check the pressure without the clutch running.

usually we adjust the freon with weight, not pressure.

Have yo added any?

How exactly have you checked for leaks?
