hi, everyone. It is really annoying that Just warm air blow out in these hot days. so please help.
First, a mechanic checked the car, and he told me that there are enough Freon inside, but compressor did not work at all. so he suspected it is the electronic problem. So he directed me to an electronic special shop.
This electronic shop checked the cycling switch and tried to jump start compressor, but did not work.
then they checked electronic plug in lower pressure switch, and I was told that the line around that the plug was damaged, so they thought that they found the problem. They fixed the damaged electronic line. but during the fixing, all freon leaked through the lower pressure switch.
After they fix the electronic line, they tested the fuse box, and when AC
is on, the fuse controlled ac
is on according to the tester, so they concluded that all electronic part related to the AC
is fine now.
After that, I went back to the mechanic I first saw, and told him that I need freon now. He tried to add freon, but compressor still did not work, so freon can not be added. He then told me if the electronic shop fix all electronic problem, it may be the problem of compressor itself.
Now I still have some concerns before I put money to change compressor.
1. As I read the ford service manual. It says that people should jumper start the lower pressure switch to test if the compressor can work. but as I saw, several guys in electronic shop tried to unplug that switch, but it can not be taken out. I tried myself, too tight.
2. If the system completely without any froen, is that normal that compressor will not work even if the electronic part is fine.
3. Any easy way to make sure if the compressor is dead.
