The relay is in the IPDM. Perform the auto-active test I am sending to verify the relay and teh rest of the circuit is in tact.
sorry helping multiple people at once.
so the auto active test RAN, but the compressor never clicked loudly?
i need you to answer my questions directly if you can, i am getting confused
I need to know if the auto active test ran the cycle or not
if it did, did the compressor clutch click when the cycle ran?
the relays INSIDE the IPDM are not serviceable, so you cannot test them individually without back probing and jumping pins
The auto active test is a simple test that will flash the headlights, do wipers, cooling fans, and compressor clutch to VERIFY the circuits are working and teh fuses are in tact.
If the test runs then you know the relay works, the wiring is all in tact, and the fuse is good. without a single test with a meter. Can't get any better than that
Once you know the circuit works and is in tact then you can check to see WHY it's not activating when the a/c is switch on. is it the freon levels or pressure or what?
we can find the culprit pretty easy this way.
That only tells us that the compressor clutch is goo when it has power. we are trying to figure out WHY it's not getting power. So doing the auto active test will rule out a problem in the circuit. so we can move forward.
