my girl got a unit trying to help me fix by buying a used unit that LOOKS exactly like my original unit on the surface and appears to fit my dash but it was not the same part number and was wired different

i got my old unit the original and took the exact part # off it to attempt to have it sent to b repaired by one of the ebay repair guys when i noticed most of them said it would not b guaranteed to fix compressor problems which lead me to believe something else controls the signal to compressor to turn it on and i am in a remote area and married to my businesses 7 365 and have trouble getting help cuz i dont get out much

turns out i think that i was half right so i dont know if mechanic checked freon levels i do know he very busy but honest and certified the car has never had freon added or for that matter checked and i have been forced to take it back w/out a/c or walk so u sayeatc unitcontrol the signal to compessor AFTER IT SEESthe low pressure switch signal then it will power up the relay to compressor to kick in so if that b the case my original module might b ok if the freon level low it also indicates to me the non-mechanic that the possible relay or switch so will test freon first
