you need a peace of wire and strip both ends so you can insert into the pins under the relayA paper clip can work but I would be careful if you go that route because it can get hot and burn your fingers.Normally I find an old peace of electrical wire and cut a short peace and stripe both ends
the relay itself should have a diagram also
and the bottom usually has the PIN numbers
a house wire would work... do you have a test light?if you you can take a picture of the Relay ... the relay diagram and the pins under the relay you can upload them using the paper clip above the text boxand I can verify you are jumping the right ones
you need a test light to see if your getting power to the relay pins.a volt meter or test light for testing.and I can tell you what to check
if there is no power getting to the relay jumping it will do nothing also if you have a bad ground somewhere could do the same.Have you checked the AC clutch fuse 30 (10 amp)?to help you further I need you to have a test light or meter and I can direct you on what to check
you could have a bad connection there or a loose wire under the pins.do you see any corotion?if you move it around and tap on it does it stay running?
you may need to open the fuse box and look for a bad wire or loose wire.you may need to replace it but you might want to see if it can be repaired
different boxes are different
usually there are a couple of 10mm bolts that hold it down and often there are many clips that you need to pry open with a flat head while trying to pull it apart.there is no detailed information in my databases for going inside the panel but you pretty much need to look at it for bolts and clipsyou may also want to disconnect the battery first so you don't have any issuesI would think a shop would charge you around $100 to go in and look for the problem
Thank you for using Just Answer
normally it will come apart with the fuses still installed
it usually splits in two
Thats good news
I'm glad you have it working again.
Come see us again if you need help in the future
so it looks like it finally died :(..I opened everything up and you cant see wires back there because the box is separated into blocks inside the fuse box that just have the wiring harness wired right in. My question is how hard would it be to install a new box with wiring and everything ? Seems like it is a last resort but the A/C relay is completely not making the connection anymore..it pops a little but doesn't work at all anymore.
