Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** make sure that fuse #11 in the underhood fuse box and fuse #10 in the under dash fuse box are good. Next I would verify power to the compressor clutch relay and then I would bypass the compressor clutch relay and verify that the clutch engages. If it does it tells you that the problem is with the activation of the relay from the ECU. If the clutch does not engage it tells you that there is a fault between the relay and the clutch or the clutch itself is bad.
Let me know if you have any questions.
Marty

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
