Customer reply replied 8 months ago
We tried replacing relay, a.c. compressor, lines, evaporator sensor, we pulled a vacuum (no leaks).We bridged the slots where the relay goes to force compressor to run so we could fill it with 3 lbs. of freon.It does not engage without the bridge.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
The system run perfect full of Freon with the bridge.
Cadillac Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 8 months ago

ok, you need to hook up an ac manifold gauge set to the high side and low side pressure ports so we can see what the pressures are doing. forcing the system to run by jumping the relay can and will damage other components if there is something that is keeping the system from running under normal circumstances, which obviously there is.
