Default AC Problem. 06 Compressor problem....

After reading all the posts... This is what I have...

Coming home from fishing trip, at night, the AC quit blowing cold air right before we got home. I did not pay much attention to it.. Next day went to store and the ac did not blow any cold air... I have had this issue before thinking it was low on freon or cycling switch or fan. Having checked freon is good, ac switch is brand new, ( installed a new one just to check) and the fan I just got it from Rock's maybe a month ago.. The only thing I have not doen is messed with the other switch on the compresser,on the backside of it... Will that cause any problems. Oh the fan comes , you hear it ... Any ideas of what it might be... I am alittle pissed off with how crappy this vehicle has been... Let me know something...... The fuses are good in the fuse box, forgot to mention that.

added 9-10-9 now the fan is not kicking in.. the wires show power, but there is something wrong with the ground.. it has power coming to it....????????? WTF!!!!

Exclamation Re: 2006 Touring non turbo AC PROBLEM.....

After calling the dealership, they informed me it was the high limit switch on the back side of compressor.. Well that wasnt it.. Now the fan wont kick on nor the compressor.. There is something in the wireing that is f'd up.. It marks that I am getting power to the ground, why would this be happening??? The fan was working fine before... Damn I could call this car sll the worse names in the book. From the looks of it the PT has had all these issues with the AC. The switch on the condensor is all good. What steps should I take..Any1 have any ideas...

I'd try a place that specializes in A/C.

Question Re: 2006 Touring non turbo AC PROBLEM.....

Update...... lol sounds just like when unsolved mysteries would come on... damn did i just show my age, im only 30.. Anyway I disconected the wire harness that goes to the AC Fan, one was full of water.... Replaced it with the original harness I kept , the fan comes on perfect, nice strong.. It is just not cooling, I did the paper clip on the accumilator..nothing.. Anyone know another step or something i should try.... Also freon is good, had it replaced ..

No fuses outside of fuse blocks I know of - you might have a broken wire....

Exclamation Re: 2006 Touring non turbo AC PROBLEM.....

I had a chance to look under the car.. I have no power to the compressor.. I just checked ... so somewhere I have lost power... The fan turns on , it is just there is no power to the compressor, I checked the switch on the back, I believe it is the high pressure switch. .....A TO BE CONT...

Just ran some tests on the PT. I have pwer to the back of the compressor.. The compressor does not click or engage . I have even been under the car to listen and did not hear it. Now I know it could be the cluth on the compressor or the compressor... Any ideas on how to tell or am I going to have to take it in to get the @#$%^&*&^%$#@%% thing checked.. sorry for that , this has just been pissing me off. So does anybody have a compressor on the shelf that will fit an 06 pt cruiser non turbo ... automatic. ..TO BE CONT>>>>
