I'm trying to find the location for the A/C relay for our 2011 Rouge

Mechanic's Assistant: Okay, I'll connect you to the mechanic to help find that for your Nissan. Before I do, is there anything else you want him to know?

We have had 3 compressors replaced in this car. Every time the A/C goes out it is preceded with episodes of intermintent non function. When it goes out, the clutch will no longer engauge. If we could buy just a clutch that is all we would replace.

It is the relay for the A/C compressor clutch I am looking for, not the blower relay

Hey there, thanks for the question.The relay for the A/C compressor is inside the IPDM. You can't remove the relay it's built into the IPDM, but you can do an auto active test with the IPDM and make it activate the clutch to verify the relay is working fine.

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
