Hi,thanks for your question.The bulb for the lamp on the a/c switch may just be burned out,are you certain the a/c system has a full charge?The system being low on freon could also cause the compressor to become inoperative,thanks for your time.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I just put my ac check gauges on the high and low side of the system. Both read 0 and the compressor won't kick on. I'm pretty sure that's my problem.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
With 0 pressure I think the Pressure Switch will disallow the compressor from turning on therefor shutting down the whole system. I'll need to take it to get it checked for leaks and charged.

Yes that's correct ,if you have a good charge and no operation let me know and we can continue ,thanks.
