Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.
Check the 4 pins at the compressor relay with the A/C turned on. Check all four for ground and then check all 4 for power. Let me know which ones have power, which ones have ground and which ones have nothing. There is a pinout on the side or bottom of the relay letting you know which pin is which so you can relay the right info back to me.

I haven't checked relay but I have got a new one and it is working. It is same as horn relay and I swapped l, horn worked. It will randomly work when it wants. Sometimes it blows cold and clutch engages exactly like it's suppose to. Others it just doesn't

Chevy Mechanic: Kavey, Shop Owner replied 3 years ago
Having a good relay will not get power TO the relay.

It has been working so haven't had a chance to test. Like I said it'll work fine for X amount of time. Then it'll quit, may quit for awhile or may kick back on.

Customer reply replied 3 years ago

The relay is getting power like it is suppose to
