Cool

I purchased a used transducer from a 95' intrepid that a buddy was parting out, it was his but an accident caused it to be written off. I put the part in my car and no A/C. Now I have two of these transducers and both cannot be shot as his work fine before the accident, so at this point (after checking all the wires, fuses and relays) I assume that there is a bigger problem here that just the transducer. I know that there is a post for how to check the transducer and how to engage the clutch with a three wire transducer set up I just can't find it or just plain missed it, can anyone point me in the right direction?

you might be able to put a resistor across the wires that go to the compressors clutch that is of the same resistance as the clutch cicuit. I dont know exactly what dodge used as criteria for a fault in this circuit so I assume that if you put a circuit on there to mimick the clutch being there the fault will go away.

However I would recomend asking around here somemore becuase i know there are other people on this forum who have removed the compressor for performance reasons, see what they did about it.

Good luck

I've browsed through this thread and dont think i've come across the anwer to my question so i'll put it out there. On a recent trip i noticed that when the air is on (not necessarily the AC button but defrost or whatnot) there is this squeak/squeal sound coming from the passanger dash area. It only happens when some sort of air is on. Its been to cold to check it well (i'm at college without a garage). Just wondering if anyone has had this problem or would like to venture a guess as to what it is

That is your blower motor. Mine did the same thing. You just need to get a new one. It is a pain in the neck to change... If you have/get a haynes manual it will give you the step by step.

Compressor not coming on have a ATC on this vehicle shows code 35 which is evap sensor. Is this the same as a low pressure switch or the transducer located by the dryer?

This is a sensor inside the car in the heater/air conditioning enclosure. It is meant to keep the evaporator from freezing up.

Been having this problem I thought this was due to moisture in the system. I had a o'ring go bad can't remember whether it was the low or high side changed o'ring didn;t change dryer or vac system been freezing up ever sense. I had my evap changed about a year ago worked fine until I had to change the o'ring on the compressor. Do you think it could be a combo of the the both. I have checked the codes on the atc before never gave me any but was still freezing on low pressure line to expansion valve and into evap. I have a vac ordered but haven't recieved it yet. I was thinking about changing dryer and pulling a vac on it and recharging it since summer is coming up. It takes about 15inutes out on the highway and the evap starts to freeze. Have you ever had to change one of the evap sensors?

Changing the sensor is not too bad. By not pulling a vacuum on the system you have moisture in the system. The vacuum allows the moisture (water) to boil out at a lower temperature. The receiver/drier is probably saturated. With moisture in the system it freezes into ice crystals and blocks the operation of the metering device (H-Block) this will allow th evaporator to reach a temperature that will allow it to freeze.

This is also extreemly hard on the compressor. It is pumping into a smaller orfice and is starving for the return refrigerant and oil.

The sensor is probably okay. It's just protecting the evaporator from freezing, which is it's job.

Hey Paul G

Hey Paul G
What pressures should I be getting on my gauges on 75 degree outside temp on my Low and High?

As a ballpark on the readings 35psi on low and 180psi on the high side.

Hey Paul G

My AC on my 93 Concorde with ATC was giving me a intermitten Compressor problem. Now it has just quit. Changed dryer, schrader valve at pressure switch and Pressure switch 3 wire type, pulled Vac. Started adding one can of 134a Compressor never would come on. Disconnected canon plug at compressor no voltage when A/C button is pressed in on ATC. Shouldn't I have 12 volts at compressor to kick it in? Changed relays around no help. Can I jump off the battery to the pin on the compressor to see if it kicks in? If it does I must have a open wire. Does the AC system have a fuseable link?

Jumped Compressor off of battery and clutch kicks in. But still no voltage at compressor. Voltages at pressure switch are 5 volts .8 volts and ground seems to be a little high 3.5 to 4 ohms. Is this normal? Has anyone found where and which wires are burning up? I'm just guessing the 12 volt which runs to the compressor runs under the intake plenum and back behind the engine. might be cooked somewhere.
Engine fault codes now show that A/C clutch circuit open. Is there a fuseable link anywhere on the main 12 volt wire to the compressor?

For what ever the reason the compressor started to come back on. Charged up with 134a and threw in 2oz.s of oil works awesome. Glad this forum is here!
