Re: Service A/c and A/C compressor off
You do not have to "reset" the PCM, but you do have to clear the DTC's. Pulling battery power should have done it. Did you pull a vacuum when you recharged it? How did you recharge it without clearing the DTC's? Clearing the DTC's is what enables the compressor.
Somthing is locking it up, check all ur relays, fuses, switchs & connections, get a voltmeter, they are very cheap make sure you are getting power where it's needed.
If every thing checks out ok than start over, vaccum it out, clear all the codes & refill with freon & oil.
Oh one more thing, did you actually clear the AC codes?? Clearing the PCM doesn't clear the A/C codes you have to clear the ACM (AirCondioting Module) Now, if you pulled the BATTERY THAT SHOULD HAVE CLEARED THE CODES, b4 you do all of the above go back into the DIC & check.
