Hello, my name is***** for the question. If I am not online when you return please give me some time to get back to you. The most common cause of this is the low pressure cycling switch located on the accumulator on the passenger side of the firewall under the hood. This switch opens and closes the circuit depending on system pressure and when it fails it can get stuck and keep it on or off. It can also be the clutch or the relay but this is the most common. If you can tell me what the high and low side pressures are reading when it is on and when it is off it will help to narrow it down.
