New Ac compressor not working

Postby 1983GG » Tue Sep 24, 2019 9:13 pm

I just recently replaced my ac compressor along with a new condensor and dryer in my 2006 acura. I had a local shop charge it and install a new ac relay but the compressor would not turn on nor would the ac fans come on. Everything inside my cars dash functions like it should but the compressor isnt getting any power.

I have power at my fuse panel for my ac relay.

What can i check? is the thermal protector on the compressor at fault?

Thanks Greg

Get a circuit diagram and since you state that the compressor is NOT getting positive voltage, work your way backward to find out where the circuit is not "hot".

If you jump positive voltage to the compressor, does the AC clutch pull in/engage? I ALWAYS check a new AC compressor in that way before I even go to the oil adding step and the install.
