A/C compressor clutch seized up.
Plug-in connector melted.
Replaced comp. and connector.
Comp. won't engage.
SES light is on.
Mech said it was reading problem codes.
May require difficult R&R of the computer
which entails removal of part of the dash.
Any quick fix ideas to try before letting mech at it?
If the melted connector shorted out, it blew a fuse.
Replacing the A/C fuse may fix the problem.
If polarity is important, is new plug wired backwards?
The engine control computer does not turn the A/C off
and on. The A/C has its own controller behind the dash.
The SES codes in some cars can be read by inserting a
jumper wire into a below-dash connector and counting
the times the SES light flashes. It takes about 15
minutes. You can find the meaning of each code from
your mech or from an auto repair book in the library.
Then decide whether to begin spending money.
