Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** you for visiting the site.

Let me just say that any money that you paid, or if you have a subscription, that money stays in your account until the answers are rated, (positive) regardless of how fast or how long it may take to get finished. You can FOLLOW UP AT ANYTIME, even after rating.

That is the compressor clutch, (high resistance in the coil) or an intermittent short in the windings. The compressor clutch, coil and hub will normally have to be replaced. It is sometimes best and more cost effective to replace the compressor with the clutch.

Please don’t forget to rate the answer in a positive way, . EVEN IF YOU HAVE A SUBSCRIPTION ****THAT IS THE ONLY WAY I GET PAID ****
