What have you tried so far?Customer: I have cleaned both the throttle body and the IAVC.JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?Customer: When I start the engine there is clicking from behind the glove compartment. For each click the Tach. needle goes down and back up to 1500 rpm. After about 17 times the needles for both tach. and thermostat fall.

I have a specialized question about a Honda air conditioning

I have a specialized question about a Honda air conditioning issue. I'm a fairly experienced technician, so I need someone to answer who has specialized Honda AC knowledge please. Responses with general AC advice won't help if you see what I mean.OK....2010 Honda CRV. AC compressor not coming on. Applied power directly to all three of the male plug prongs in the elect. connector coming out of the compressor, but compressor clutch doesn't engage. One of the 3 prongs makes a small spark when touching it with 12v, so it appears to be accepting the voltage, but again nothing happens with compressor. Compressor turns manually. This made me assumed the coil in the compressor clutch is bad. However threre's one other thing....using a test light, when I probe the plug that connects to the compressor (the plug that should bring power to the compressor) I expect to have power in that plug when the AC dash switch is turned on. However I don't have power at this plug. I made sure the thermostat is all the way cold, etc. so AC should be on, I stuck a tiny probe up in the plug to make sure I'm getting good contact, but no power at this plug.Is this no power at the plug the problem? Or is there something that controls the power going to the compressor, or some other legitmate reason power wouldn't be at this plug all the time? I shouldn't have to jump the cycling switch, since the AC is off, and lack of pressure should make the cycling switch be "on".
