I would bypass the low cycling switch and service the ac first,or use direct power and ground to inspect the clutch,just make sure your compressor is not locked up first.

My 2005 Nissan Altima A/C The A/C runs cold but

are youc sure it is the compressor and if it is yes the entire thing. You can get a used one on Ebay for cheap. since they do not go bad often find one that is used with a 30 day gauarntee and if it works and it is quiet you are good to go.

no it could be air condition clutch that engage/disengage the air condition compressor and disengage it through the pulley or could be the pulley bearings one of them . also check the solenoid that controls that clutch .

2002 nissan altima a/c compressor wont engage & wippers wont work

it could be a conscience that the wipers stopped too, because elctricly these are not sharing any resources.
there may be a leak in the system. when the freon gets low there is a pressure switch that disables the clutch to prevent damage.

I have a 2005 Nissan Altima SE equipped with a 3.5 liter V-6. Recently, when turning on my a/c, I hear a raw straining sound. Although the a/c tends to blow cold air I continue to hear this sound as the...

the problem is at the system that runs the ac compressor: it can be the belt that is slipping or the system that couples the compressor(it's like a clutch, but with an electromagnet on it) which maybe doesn't engage well the compressor

Ac compressor will not engage when ac is on. System seems to be full of gas. Quit without warning. This is on a 2003 Nissan Altima with 2.5L. Secondary fan does come on when AC is switched on.

Check A/C compressor relay. When you say it seems to be full of gas(freon) have you actually put a pressure gauge on the system? If the pressure is too low, the compressor will not engage. If the compressor relay is functioning, check for power at the compressor clutch. If it has power to it and it still is not engaging, the A/C clutch may need replacing. It is usually almost as economical to replace the complete compressor with clutch installed than to just purchase a clutch. Keep in mind if you replace the compressor you should also replace the receiver/dryer also referred to as the accumulator.
