Now you should see the compressor clutch in the AC system spinning. The gauge is re-usable with other cans without a pressure gauge ($15). Please try again later.

REWARD EXCELLENCE! Follow the safety instructions. Expensive! With older R12 A/C systems (1994 model year vehicles an older that have NOT been retrofitted to R134a), the HIGH side pressure readings will typically be 150 to 185 PSI at check over here
When this sensor goes bad the compressor will not turn on. After the heat is removed by the fan, the refrigerant becomes liquid under high pressure. You can now start the engine back up and return to the engine bay. Another cause could be an internal obstruction inside the refrigerant circuit that is preventing refrigerant from circulating inside the A/C system.

Thank you! Today punching the a/c button produces nothing. Hold the engine speed and note the High and Low side pressure gauge readings.
You will first want to check your grill and bumper, as well as the area around the condenser, and make sure there is not anything obstructing air flow.

From there the pipe snakes into the passenger compartment, and goes into an evaporator. If the vehicle is rear wheel drive and has a mechanical fan look to see if the fan is "freewheeling" which is an indication of the fan clutch being bad and
