Question about 2000 Jeep Cherokee

1 Answer

2000 Jeep Cherokee A/C not blowing cold, compressor would keep kicking on every 1-2 minutes even w/ A/C off, now does not kick in at all. Replaced low pressure cycling switch, no change. R134, shows full. Ideas? Any way to test the high pressure cut-out (would it keep compressor from engaging if broken/stuck in on position)?

Test compressor unit to make the clutch magnet is to make sure its engaging. Youtube it or google it and you'll be surprised what you find. It can be a DIY if your handy that way. And a lot less expensive as there are replacement parts for these.

If compressor isn't kicking in, check the connector atop the a/c accumulator, beside the coolant recover tank, in the engine compartment. That connector is atop a black bottle, and the connector goes to the low pressure switch. These switches do fail, and you can jump a wire across the connector terminals to see if the compressor comes on (engine running). As this circuit provides part of the ground path from the compressor clutch, if the switch is open, the compressor will never turn on. If the switch is failed, it can be replaced without opening the a/c system. Just disconnect the connector, unscrew the switch, replace it, and reconnect the connector.

SOURCE: low refrigerant prevents the a/c pump from kicking

Low pressue switch rarely, if ever go bad. Do not mix 134 with r-12. Ck twhich one the system uses.
Servicing the A/C - Kits are sold at auto parts stores. While there, ask the counter person if he would show you the connection port. It's on side of the system that comes out of the heater box on thefirewall in front of passenger. .

SOURCE: My airconditioner is blowing hot air. The mechanic

If it is the 3.5 litre it has a triple switch located on the top of the dryer that switch is actually the high pressure switch the low pressure switch and medium when the pressure is medium or you jump it than fans will kick on high he is right about the thermistor for the evaporator he should just apply 12volts to the compressor to see if the coil on the compressor is bad all three are common problems not knowing where the switch is makes me wonder if he even checked the relay or how he knows the compressor isnt bad

A/c compressor wont kick in has been working before it has just been filled


Was the servicing done properly? A too low pressure will prevent the compressor to kick in. On your jeep i believe that a too high pressure will do the same ( later models use a temperature sensor in the evaporator)

My AC is having trouble. It seems to only work once out of every 50 times I have tried to run it. I checked the freon with a AC gauge I bought and followed the instructions and it said the levels were up...


Hi, first of all, you will want to verify that your compressor is kicking on. Open hood and located A/C compressor. Have a helper start the engine and and then turn on A/C to maximum with blower at full speed. See if you hear and observe the compressor kick on. The outer portion of the compressor outside the pulley is the clutch. It should make a click and begin to spin along with the pulley. If it kicks on ok, does your cooling fan at the radiator kick on also? May need to run the engine a few minutes to verify that. If so and you are reading a full charge at the low pressure port at this time, you have air in the system and it should be completely emptied and then re-filled with around 3 LBS of R134a refrigerant until you read a low pressure side of 45-50 PSI. Then you will be blowing cold air.
Please rate this answer! Thanks, Mike

Ac doesn/t blow cold air


There could be a leak in your a/c system. Does your a/c compressor engage when the a/c is turned on? To check, locate the compressor, its a big cylinder on the serpentine belt, you should see the wheel engage(spin) and disengage(stop) when the a/c is activated. If it doesn't move, then your compressor is bad. If it does move, then there is a leak in the system that will need to be repaired.

The AC compressor looks like this:

My jeep is heating up to about 235-240 after about 10 minutes of driving with A/C on. It usally takes about 30 minutes or more to heat up without the A/C on. I have replaced the fan clutch and thermostat...


Sounds like a partially obstructed radiator, either external, leaves between a/c condenser and radiator, or internal...some cores plugged ...radiators are actually too small for engine in the first place, making them what I consider marginal even when new. A good clue to an internal blockage is if the radiator cannot be filled quickly...a really bad one requires coolant to be literally dribbled in when filling, but likely yours isnt that bad yet. Everything else you mentioned seems normal

Dodge Ram AC not blowing cold


By pass both pressure switches one at a time with small wire or a paper clip. If comperssor kicks on replace the swich that you bypassed.
if not it could be the fan clutch ot the compressor. Compressor runs about $400.00
