    over 40 years in the trade, both, Automotive and Refrigeration/Air Conditioning.
    I am sorry you NEVER came across a Manual-Resettable Low Pressure Switch,
    OH Yeah, there is NONE on your desktop !
    "NONSENSE", i haven't heard that since 8th grade.
    I agree with your reasons, but,that is NOT the only reason.
    It seems you have evaded the original members Post,
    and chose to occupy this forum with member bashing .
    Have a Nice day.
    ------------------------------------
    FIRST - this is a Cadillac forum -
    so I limited the pertinent information to AUTOMOTIVE APPLICATIONS -
    not houses - boats - walk-in coolers - jet planes - or factories -

    in AUTOMOTIVE APPLICATIONS -
    I have NEVER seen a mechanically resettable AC pressure switch -

    so - based on the TENS-OF-THOUSANDS
    of AUTOMOTIVE AC systems I have serviced -
    without running across one single unit -
    I am going to stick my neck out and say -

    "mechanically resettable AC pressure switches do not exist -
    in AUTOMOTIVE AC SYSTEMS" -

    until someone lists an application - to prove me wrong -

    "NONSENSE", i haven't heard that since 8th grade.
    I was simply TRYING to be nice/gentle with you -
    NONSENSE seemed to be the most appropriate word to use -

    If moisture was NOT an issue,
    why do we install filter/DRYERS ?

    WHERE did THAT come from?
    WHO said moisture was NOT an issue?

    moisture contaminates freon -
    anyone with at least the fundamentals of AC systems would know that -

    I am sorry you NEVER came across a Manual-Resettable Low Pressure Switch,
    OH Yeah, there is NONE on your desktop !

    THAT is a BRILLIANT statement -

    PLEASE - list just ONE SINGLE CAR - up to the 2005 model year - that used one -

    PLEASE - PLEASE - PLEASE - PROVE ME WRONG -

    It seems you have evaded the original members Post,
    on the contrary -
    I gave the OP the very best answer that could be given -
    with the information he supplied -
    CHECK FOR CODES -

    if the system WAS low -
    a CODE would be set -

    if there was a defective pressure switch - a CODE would be set -

    if YOU knew anything about AC systems in Cadillacs -
    YOU would have/SHOULD have come to the came conclusion -and my post #8 was the CORRECT answer to the OP's question -
    of "How do I reset the Low Pressure Switch?"

    and chose to occupy this forum with member bashing

    I would hardly call CORRECTING YOUR MIS-INFORMATION -
    MEMBER BASHING -

    and if you post more MIS-INFORMATION -
    you can EXPECT to see me CHALLENGE YOU - AGAIN -

    just as I would expect to be challenged -
    if I posted MIS-INFORMATION -

    Re: Air Conditioner problem on my 1997 STS

    Anyhow, I'm pretty sure compressor meltdown from the lack of suspended oil is far worse than a little moisture in the system. A 20 min pull down should remove most of it.

    If your mechanic doesn't know how to reset the AC codes in a Cadi, I suggest you find a new one.

    Any more questions, Scoobydo?

    Here it comes...ready?
    You're not gonna believe but just do it.
    Check the "CRUISE" fuse (or wiring) underhood.
