Problem with my 97 vw Eurovan AC system. When AC is

Customer Question
Problem with my 97...

Problem with my 97 vw Eurovan AC system. When AC is activated, low radiator fans should come on but they do not and therefore AC compressor clutch does not engage. However, when radiator fans come on due to high coolant temp, AC clutch would come on and stop when fans stop. Problem ?

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the clutch been slipping? Are you having any trouble shifting?

No , clutch comes on only when radiator fans come on because coolant got hot. No trouble with engine shifting

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Eurovan yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes. Replaced AC pressure switch and most components connected with the radiator fan system.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Why radiator fans do not come on when AC is demanded.
