it me! My friend is the one who converted it over to r-134. When he was adding the peg oil he didn't have the hose on tight,and alot of the oil leaked out of the can. could this cause the compressor to act this way? or someone told me at advace auto parts that you couldn't change that year car over to r-134 without replacing the compressor. Is this true? and could this have locked up the compressor not having enough peg oil in it?sorry I am not to machanicaly inclined.were are the switches to check? and how do you check them?

The first thing that i would do is take off the plastic cover that hides your fuse center, behind the engine, near the passenger strut tower, unplug the switch on your accumulator ( silver tank ) jump the connector with a wire, take the car for a ride, if the A/C stays working you have a bad pressure cycling switch.

Good luck,

I had the problem with broken pins on the connector after I had my wiring harness replaced. The mechanic had disconnected the compressor and when he plugged it back in some of the pins got pushed out of position. Had intermitent contact which caused it to work sometimes and not others. Replaced connector, problem solved.

Unhook the connector from the switch, then get a piece of wire with both ends bare, stick the 1 piece of the wire in one slot and the other end in the other slot.
