Default ac problem

hello all I'm new here and I'm not the owner of the pt but my mother in law is and since im the most mechanically inclined i get to work on it!! which I've always had a place in my hart for the cruiser.

but any who her ac stopped working at the beginning of the summer after working just fine all last year and what i have found out is that the clutch is just not engaging, it has proper pressure and no leaks that i know of, any suggestions on how to check the compressor without getting a whole new one?

Welcome to the forum.

You don't memtion what year the cruiser is but I'm taking it that's it between 2000-2005.

Did you check the A/C fuse in the PDC (Power Distribution Center) that's located in the engine compartment?

The high pressure switch itself located on the compressor has been giving problems for some owners. If that's not working properly, the compressor won't enguage.
