Saturn Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site. what connector was melted? the plug to the compressor or the plug on the compressor?
ok. did they recharge it with the proper amount of refrigerant? im assuming they did
also since the plugs were melted, did they check the fuses?
they thought it was the fans causing the ac not to work? so the compressor never engages right?
here are some fuses to check. any that deal with the ac, climate control, ac clutch, hvac contol, etc....
ok. it should have a relay for the cutch. let me find it for you.
ok. theres a relay for the ac clutch in the fuse panel under the hood. pull that relay. do you have a multi meter?
00.1 what? volts?
check the base for voltage. not the relay.
one slot should have 12vdc at all times. one should have 12vdc with the key turned on. the other 2 shouldnt have any voltage
ok. does another slot have any voltage with the key on?
ok. good. now leave the key on, install a jumper wire between the slot with 11.89vdc and one of the other slots that dont have voltage. have the ac turn on while doing this. let me know if the compressor engages.
ok. with the jumper in, can you check for power at the clutch connector?
ok. now put the jumper in to the other slot that didnt have voltage, leaving the one side alone that has voltage. check it then
do you still need assistance?
