If so you will have to unhook the battery ground cable and reboot before the compressor clutch will again engage. My personal experience on this one. Only at that time will you be able to recharge the system.
    -------------------------
    if there was low refrigerant - it would set a LOW REFRIGERANT CODE -

    you will have to unhook the battery ground cable
    and reboot before the compressor clutch will again engage

    or just go into the computer and clear the codes -

    Re: AC Clutch Not engaging

    Just got back from another WTX work trip, is there any method for testing those Freon temp sensors? I noticed that if I unplug the one closest to the brake booster (KOER), both fans come on HIGH and stay on until I replace the connector. I have checked for continuity between the cavities in the connector(s) to as far down the harness as I can get, and everything has checked out to that point. I'm leaving the battery disconnected at the moment to clear out the "A" codes. I want to see if they come back or not, and clearing PCM codes doesn't seem to remove them

    UPDATE

    I disconnected the battery for awhile and cleared out the A011 and A012 codes (they have NOT come back), but the compressor still will not engage. Any suggestions?


    The A011 and A012 were probably just from me unplugging the connectors while the engine was running last week (just making sure they were clean and fully seated)

    never mind, problem solved. It was a bad low pressure sensor. Voltage to one side with nothing on the other when you know their is pressure in the system= the problem.
