Hi there.

What engine do you have on that '07 Fusion? Manual or Automatic A/C? Also, what do you mean by "no ground true pcm", is it that the PCM is not grounding the compressor clutch relay?

07 ford fusion w a v6 automatic yes pcm not grounding compressor clutch relay
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
if i get the wire from the pcm pin 64 and add ground for 2 second like stimulate the pcm the system will star working normal till shut off the car completly and wait next day and no ground anymore
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
the evap temp sensor its like 93degree and the pressure switch its like 58 psi
Ford Mechanic: Juan Crespo, Tech Trainer replied 1 year ago

That sounds like the PCM is not getting an A/C request signal. It's much easier to diagnose this type of issue with a scan tool capable of reading this type of data; do you have access to one of those?

Ford Mechanic: Juan Crespo, Tech Trainer replied 1 year ago

Not a problem. Just want to remind you that this is not a super fast chat like the ones you might be used to. Since it goes through the site, it takes longer to send and receive messages.

Can your scanner display WAC and WACF PIDs? If not, look for anything that could be preventing the PCM from activating the compressor, such as any type of engine malfunction, misfire, etc... Then please let me know.

no malfuctions till i not put grown and stimulated the relay wac stay on off positition on scaner
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
the answer is wac says is off and no other engine malfunction car runs good
Ford Mechanic: Juan Crespo, Tech Trainer replied 1 year ago

If the PCM was seeing a request, then WAC should be ON. Where are you seeing the A/C request as being ON? Which PID?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Ford Mechanic: Juan Crespo, Tech Trainer replied 1 year ago

Also, grounding the circuit manually can damage the driver inside the PCM. I wouldn't do that if I were you...

wat should i look for
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
wat else turns a/c on or of
Ford Mechanic: Juan Crespo, Tech Trainer replied 1 year ago

The PCM is the only thing that energizes the compressor clutch relay. It does that upon receiving an A/C ON request from the control panel and after monitoring the enabling signals (TPS, engine temp, refrigerant pressure).

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Ford Mechanic: Juan Crespo, Tech Trainer replied 1 year ago

Most of the times, there is an issue with the pressure transducer connector that interrupts the signal to the PCM. With your manifold gauges attached, the A/C on and the engine running, set your scanner to display the A/C PRESSURE PID. Are both readings the same? If not, check the pressure transducer connector and wiring.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
yea but the 58 psi should be plenty off freon to come on? and wen it does run by it selft everything works perfect just that inicial start up
Ford Mechanic: Juan Crespo, Tech Trainer replied 1 year ago

The pressure transducer signal is just one of the enabling criteria the PCM looks at for compressor engagement. So, if the PID has the same value as the gauges, then that signal is OK. Next one to check is Evaporator temp PID. It should read the same as ambient temperature. Does it? If that signal is also OK, then the next one to check would be A/C switch PID. It should show on and off as the switch is turned on and off. If not, then the control head is probably bad (another common problem). If it is also OK, then the next check would entail removing the instrument cluster to test the wire from the control head to the cluster to see if it is OK (since the commands are sent through the CAN, the cluster acts like a body control module that takes the electric signal from the A/C control head, converts it to serial data and then sends it to the PCM through the CAN)

Ford Mechanic: Juan Crespo, Tech Trainer replied 1 year ago

There might be a loose connection somewhere. Please run the checks I outlined for you on my previous post and let me know what you find.
