Bruce did you check the freon. if the pressure is not enough the ac clutch will not engage. If it is the freon you may want to use a leak detector from your local autoparts store before wasting freon.

I have a 98 chevy express van,My A/C compresor relay dose not engage when you turn the switch on but if you unpluge the relay and put back in with the switch on it will work, turn the switch off and

1) you must test the wires connector from corroded cables , clean it
2) Test the voltage for 12vdc for input to the coil of the relais.
3) If there are NOT, test the fuse for open and replacle, the fuse box in the hood motor, see the instruction name, and identify the fuse or c.breaker. and replace or repair.
4) see the diagram attached and use the logic sense for troubleshooting.
God bless you

What would cause AC clutch to not engage when ac is turned on 1999 Siverado Z71,It blows air but its hot air even when on max AC someone said that the clutch on commpressor wasnt engaging do you have to...

This could be a few things.
1- Check fuses for A/C
2- Check to make sure the unit has freon
You have a switch on the accumulator that is called a low pressure shut off switch. It prevents the compressor from running when the freon is low. I would suggest if it is not a blown fuse, have a certified A/C repair garage take a look at this.

Ac clutch not engaging ac is blowing warm air but system is fully presurized on 02 venture van

pull connector off by evaporator can and cross a wire between the connector holes to close the circuit and this should keep the clutch engaged to let the freon go all the way through the system. If the vehicle was just reserviced the gauge will show full but it has not been pumped through the orifice tube area to the coil that cools your van interior. hope this helps.
