Hey Mechanics, Hot wiring my A/C, will i blow up?
    #4241900 - 05/31/05 11:03 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

i have a problem with my air conditioning.

three is a short going to the actuall compressor.
when i hi the ac button in the cab, the idle changes like it should, but no power goes to the compresor.

if i run a 12v wire from the battery to the compressor it works, so since im driving to phoenix az tomorrow, i was wondering if i could run a wire, to a switch in the cabin, to the compressor to make the compressor go on. or if this is going to bypass some saftry devices that will keep me alive.....

thanks :smile:

I really don't know. It would, in theory, work, although as you said, you're by-passing various safety devices, and could cost you a lot more in the long run (I.E. eventually replacing the entire A/C system, as opposed to fixing a minor electrical problem and having it done right..) I honestly wouldn't risk it....

if you had a short you most likely would have a short in the entire system, and your battery would drain.. check the fuses then check wire to make sure it didnt get chopped off somewhere down the line, or that it's not just disconnected someplace stupid... get a voltage tester and test it at each connection... you can figure out which connection power is stopping at... also, check to make sure it's grounded propery.

Your symptomes sound odd to me...

There is no electricity going to the compressor(did you use a meter for this)? Yet you still feel a idle change.... Your air is cold when you wire it straight to the battery, but hot when used from the dash?

I wish i could help you fix the real problem....

If you are going to wire it straight to the battery, use an in-line fuse. If you are ever taping into your battery with a new wire, you always add a fuse within a few inches of the battery. I dont know if you know, but this is the number one cause of vehicle fires.

hmm, let me help you understand the symptoms

everything is normal when i hit the ac button, except 2 things. 1 air does not get cold, and i do not feel the drag on the engine when the compressor kicks in. = clutch not engaging (imho)

the motor still kicks up the idle in expectation oft he extra drag, and the light on the a/c thingie in the dash goes on

Ive done that before ...you need cool air so that kinda fixes it
Your smarter than most and you have cold air
worst that can happen is the compressor stops working
pm me if you need a new compressor in the future  :tongue2:

Your only bypassing the low pressure cut out and they go out all the time ....no worrys dude ive had mine bypassed for 3 yrs
It will kill a compressor when you run it without freon but Walla it wont cool at all if the freons gone  :smile:

Hey zippoz, if you do it, run the wire thru your interior and toss in a toggle switch and a small in line fuse just incase, otherwise it's NP. Enjoy Ariz, and stay off Vanburen street! Peace bro.
