Chrysler Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome to just answer. Sounds like you have an excessive resistance problem in the circuit between the AC clutch relay or the relay itself. The fact that there is power at the coil connector is one thing, but when that circuit is loaded it cannot provide enough current to energize the coil. Try This: Remove the AC clutch relay and look on the bottom of it. Locate the 2 terminals labeled # 30 and # 87. Now look in the fuse box and see where those terminals plug into. Get a jumper wire and jump cavity # 30 to cavity # 87. See if the clutch engages.
Let me know.
What is the model of your Chrysler?
I know it is a 2006, but what is the model. Is it a 300, a Town & Country, or a Sebring?
Ah ok. Thanks . I am going to look at the wiring diagram. Be back asap.
Ok, after looking over the wiring diagrams, I have determined that you have a failed high side ac clutch coil driver transistor in the TIPM (Totally Integrated Power Module). The TIPM is the under hood fuse box. Based on what you have told me if you replace the TIPM. I am 100% sure that this will fix this issue. If you want to replace it yourself, then let me know and I will send you the procedure on how to replace it.
