Customer: replied 5 months ago.
the ac light was yellow when i started the car then its starts blinking yellow
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
the pressure reading for the low is 0
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
hello?
Expert:  roy replied 5 months ago.

ok, thats the first issue. the freon is empty. you need to add freon to the system for it to start up

Roy

Expert:  roy replied 5 months ago.

I am here. be patient, I am answering many questions

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
we already have filled the freon, and it still has the same problem
Expert:  roy replied 5 months ago.

not if you have 0 pressure

you never answered my question if the compressor is activated

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
what is the compressor exactly?
Expert:  roy replied 5 months ago.

it is the freon pump driven by a belt on the engine

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
it is activated
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
should we fill the freon now?
Expert:  roy replied 5 months ago.

you have a leak somewhere if you filled it and now it is empty.

yes. add freon and see what happens

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
the psi is still at zero and i dont hear the freon pumpin in
Expert:  roy replied 5 months ago.

I cannot see what you are doing.

can you post a picture

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
we refilling
Expert:  roy replied 5 months ago.

did you screw the valve all the way down to puncture the can and then open back up

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
yeah i punctured it, a little came out on my hand until i screwed it on as tight as i can. then i reopened it so it could go in
Expert:  roy replied 5 months ago.

I am here and not there. does not make sense at all. you should see pressure on the gauge if freon is going in.otherwise, you have a bad installation kit

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
it is certainly going through the hose for the freon adapter. but for some reason it not going through to the low port hose
Expert:  roy replied 5 months ago.

ok, then the hose itself is bad

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
my friend is a mechanic and says it might also be something wrong with the ac relay or fuse
Expert:  roy replied 5 months ago.

has nothing to do with no freon in the system

once you get pressure, it may turn on. need to do basics first

Expert:  roy replied 5 months ago.

what is going on
