yes John, but if you are getting high pressure and the compressor is running, you may have too much gas in there.

From memory, I think they hold about 18 oz of gas, but i am not sure....

I just spent 1 hour followiung this procedure. I disconnected the battery about 8 times. The compressor would run for a few seconds every 10 seconds or so. When the compressor ran, the gauge dropped down to the green area like it should, but I can't get the compressor to stay on so I can fill the system...& the AC is blowing HOT in the cabin while I am doing this procedure.
What now?
John

John,

Thats what I did and it worked on my cars. Is the gas going into the system? You say it is cycling on and off and the pressure goes down when the compressor is on, are you leaving the gas valve on so it feeds gas when the pressure is low?

Does the gas have oil in it?

Yes, I am leaving the valve attached to the low side port. I got maybe 1/2 of 1 can into the system. Yes, the refriderant contains oil.

That'* when you have to hook a jumper across the accumulator wiring harness to force the compressor to run non-stop.

I did jumper the black connector from the accumulator & the compressor continued to cycle on & off. Does this make sense? Do I need to check the relay, or jumper it perhaps?
Thanks,
John

No, you have to jumper the wiring harness, not the accumulator.

I unplugged the black connector from the acumulator. Inside the black connector, there are 2 contacts...I inserted a wire into one contact & connected the other side of the wire to the other contact inside of the black connector. Correct?
Thanks,
John
