    My AC stopped working, and the light no longer comes on when you press the AC button... I didn't see any directly AC related relays or fuses under the hood.

    Anyone been through this? Whats likely the issue? What are the steps to fix it?

    Thanks

    If your having the same issue as B-Rad in the other current ac problem thread I can give you the same deal on the six pin under hood relay, I'm going to the junkyard on Friday. Let me know.

    If I may... wait until I get the part and if it fixes it I'll brief you on what my problem was and what fixed it. If it was sent out yesterday I should get it Thurs or Fri. I know not having AC sucks!

    Thanks for getting me the relay loser_cruiser but unfortunately it didnt fix the problem. Either the relay I got is bad as well or there is a problem with the ground in that circuit. Atleast thats my guess. My AC works if you bypass the circuit and just hook the compressor to the battery. I'll keep you posted.

    The Relay should be testable using a 12volt source and a continuity meter. Of the cars I looked at it appeared to be in the best condiotion and not tampered with previously.

    I swapped a relay with a friend and it didn't fix mine either...

    I notice the RPM's take a dip when I turn on the blower, but I'm not sure that confirms the AC compressor comes on. Plus, still no light next to the blower knob when the AC button is pressed.

    i have the same problem. Hook your compressor directly up to the battery and that will engage the clutch. This is how you can test to see if the problem is your compressor.
