Ok, first post here
my 96 deville came down with some issues in no time at all. Of course right when I was hitting 99k and getting ready to sell it.
First off. My a/c compressor clutch is not kicking on. Clutch spins fine and it never made any noises. Worked fine just before winter last year, never worked again once it got hot. I know they have a pressure sensor that will keep them from engaging when low on freon, but I checked it and its full , and would not take anymore since the compressor would not engage.
I checked all fuses dealing with the A/C system, and found nothing.
What could be some causes? Could the car having some serious codes and possibly being in "limp home mode" keep the A/C system inop?
Because. the other issues are poor drivablity. Shows horrible MPG average. Went from 22, down to 5-9 in what seemed like one day. Hesitates and just feels lacking overall.
Pulled codes and got ;
pco; 0135 O2 sensor , 1520 tranny range , 1599 engine near stall , 1626 theft deterant ( worn key) , 1660 cooling fan (? never seemed to have an issue) and IP 1552 which I cant find no matter where I search.
No other codes.
Resets codes as I found in my searches on this site and only
0680? (The keep alive mem one) and the IP1552 one stayed (of course since thats the one I cant find)
Sorry to have a post that goes all over for my first, but i wanted to lay it all out!
