Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Everyone that I’ve asked to put the ac pro in said that the gauge is too big for the truck so I went to a local Napa and asked for their help and they told me that all ac pro cans fit on every vehicle so I’m unsure of what it could be
Cadillac Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 months ago

YOur Napa Store is correct, all AC system with R134A freon have the same size fitting. Where are you trying to connect the gauge at ?

I think you are trying to connect to the high side port, the one you need to connect the hose to is the low side port and that the one on the accumulator. See the link below. I have marked it for you.

Will it work if the ac light only blinks 3 times and then shuts off?
Cadillac Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 months ago

Yes, as long as the compressor is kicking on, usually if its low on freon , the compressor will be cycling on and off but it will take the freon and once the pressure is within specs it will stay running and allow you to top it off.
