Definitely sounds like its low on refrigerant. The compressor needs at least 2lbs of refrigerant to turn on. The bad news is your jeep most likely takes R-12 refrigerant which is very expensive and is no longer available over the counter but at a garage with AC recovery equipment. Checking the pressure in the line is the only way to confirm this. Best of luck to you on your problem.

SOURCE: AC not running in my 1998 Jeep Cherokee. Changed

Hello, You have two switches which work off the pressure of the Freon. Both of these switches cut off the power to the compressor. One is for HIGH pressure and the other is for LOW pressure. Check for power at the compressor clutch connector harness while the controls are set and the engine is running. You may have power and a bad clutch.

When you say that the Freon pressure is good, does that mean the pressure is within the proper range? Too much Freon will make the HIGH switch cut off power and too little will make the LOW pressure switch cut off power.

The ideal amount(ozs) of Freon is what is recommended by the Manufactuer and it will provide a moderate amount of pressure of about 35psi-40psi. You can borrow pressure gauges, called Manifold gauges to measure your system at autoparts stores with loaner programs.

The low pressure side of the system is the one you use to induce the Freon to go into an empty system. You can bypass this switch by taking off the connector and putting a "U" shaped jumper into the harness and the compressor clutch should get power to LOCK up all of the time.

You can take off the switch connector at the compressor clutch and then check for power when bypassing the HIGH pressure switch if the LOW pressure switch does not make the system get power. Only, really only bypass the HIGH pressure switch with the clutch connector disconnected. The HIGH switch is there to prevent damage to all of the components from seals to lines to every piece of Freon hardware in the car. Bypassing with the A/C clutch disconnected will allow you to know if power is getting to the compressor clutch.

Finally, you can get FREE wiring and fusebox diagrams through Autozone.com. Just sign and register to their site and then you can print the documents for yourself.

Good luck with this repair and I hope my solution helps you.

Compressor and fans do not turn on until rev engine


I passed this question the first time I read it, so I will take a stab at it now.
The fans don't come on until the compressor has pumped the freon pressure up to say 150 or 200 psi. And the compressor clutch has to have voltage to engage the clutch.
I wonder if the clutch is going and needs 14 volts instead of 12 to engage ? Or the relay that powers the clutch ?
Speeding up the engine would increase voltage from the alternator.
This is assuming the serpentine belt is tight and everything else is working correctly.
I think I would swap the relay with another and put a meter on that circuit to the ac clutch to see what it takes to engage it.

The fan will kick on automatically everytime the ac compressor comes on to cool down the refrigerant going through the condensor. Make sure you dont have a/c selected or have it on defroster if you dont want the compressor to run.

My pontiac vibe Ac has stopped working..it started taking a long time to kick in ...now it only kicks on for a short time if im lucky.


the clutch on the ac compressor is going out.

replace the ac compressor (when you push the a/c button it should imidiately kick the compressor on).

also check the connection on the compressor, along with the fuses.

2005 jeep grand cherokee 4.7 Ac fan lost the 3 lower settings, only the high setting still worked. For a while the lower fan settings would just come on, and then go out again. The high fan setting...


Well, the blower resistor handles the lower speeds and the hi-blower relay handles the hi speed only. if the fan still works on the lower speeds then the resistor is bad. if the fan doesn't work at all then your motor has failed and or burn't the relay out also. if you can get your blower to start by hitting the kick panel above the pass. side foot area then the motor is bad. if you are handy enough to drop the kick panel and access the motor then check the connections at the motor. Then wack the motor and see if it comes on then. you will most likely find the problem if you follow those simple rules above. Good luck.
