A/C Clutch doesn't engage, so no A/C. Fuses are OK, fan operates no problem, ductwork ok, tried multiple temperature setting without effect, tried recirc on/off no effect.


The car wasn't used for a bit and when I tried the A/C no cold air. Later that day, I left the car running for about 30 minutes to see and the A/C operated normally. Since that time, the A/C has not blown cold air at all.


If anyone can help, please advise otherwise I guess it's a trip (and it's a TRIP!!!) to the danged dealer! HELP!!!!! Thanks.

Might be worth having a local A/C shop check the coolant charge - if it's below a certain amount I don't believe the A/C will function. You may have caught it just as it was reaching that level....:shrug:

Correct, there is a low pressure switch in the system that will not let the clutch engage the compressor if the pressure is below the limit.
