Where did my AC Go?
Last night I charged up my AC. Got it working nice and cool, drove around today and it was fine. Let me back up a bit though...
Prior to charging I jumped the low pressure switch to see that the compressor ran and received signals from climate controller. Initial gauge readings indicated no pressure in the system....so I pulled a vacuum, it held firm with no needle movement, then I charged the system. However, when I disconnected the high pressure line, some oil and dye sprayed out all over the area around my ps pump, hoses, etc. I did not put this dye in...it was PO.
So, today I took a mild detergent, squirted and scrubbed the area down and rinsed with very low pressure water stream. I dried everything off and blew out the area with compressed air including the compressor connector . I started driving it 15 minutes later and had no air. Also, with full AC on, the compressor wouldn’t allow me to jump it.
Did I just fry my Klima relay or some kind of fusible link? I know I got water on the compressor connector and read somewhere that that if the compressor grounds out, it will fry the klima. Thanks.....and it’s getting hot
