The guage is gonna read very high when the compressor isnt running. The compressor while running is trying to pull the lowside into a vaccum. FYI id stay away from that autoparts store for advice. Also venting refirgerant into the atmosphere purposefully is punishable by a very hefty fine.yeah i did that and the guy i just bought it from had way to much anti freeze in there when i put the guage on it read in the warning. I just bought this truck and the AC worked for a day or so and it just quit and i don'tk now anything about AC stuff so when i took to the guys at the auto parts store they found that it was way over full so they let a lot of freon out until it was right and then realized that the compressor was kicking on
What did he jump? Sounds like a faulty High/Low pressure switch to me. If your not in anyway, shape or form familiar with AC do not work on it. I would highly suggest taking it to a shop or take a class and familiarize yourself with it. AC is stupid simple once you understand what everything does:thumbsup:Okay here's the newest that's right it is a wiring problem bc I took it to a guy today and only one of the parts where my ac relay goes is hot rather then two. When we put a paper clip on the hot and a ground the compressor kicks on and my ac blows cold. So my compressor isn't broken. Now where do I start looking for wires? Behind that compressor like you said?
