That's your clutch engaging and disengaging. It's a normal function but if it happens too often then you have problems. Could be low refrigerant. you need to get a refrigerant gauge set or take it to a shop and have them check it. Do you have cold air at all?

If you are low or have no refrigerant then your description is normal.

NEED TO CHECK THE LOW AND HIGH SIDE PREASSURES, WITH A SET OF MANIFOLD GUAGES, THAT WILL GIVE YOU A STATE OF CHARGE.

ok, the wires are not getting power to the compressor.

Any idead where to start?
if it has no coolant it wont send power to compressor/clutch-if it does have coolant start with fuse then relay then sensor ect..... could also be faulty switch in climate controls ,busted vacuum line and so on-start simple then look into pricy shit,or just roll windows down :biggrin:

Thanks to all the replies!

It was the switch on the Refridgereant Canister, it was out....I just used a paper clip to bypass it and the clutch kicked on and it works.

Ill be recharging it tomorrow!

Thanks again! :)
