I plugged the compressor back in. At the time, I must have not comprehended the gravity of it and did so to keep the plug from the fan and also since it was plugged in before and he had the old one plugged in and uncharged (or maybe just low, not too sure) and had no issues before or during the trip out that it wouldn't be an issue. The AC system was new to me and I was just trying to get him back on the road as soon as possible so he could get home.

The point was made that the ECC probably should not have engaged the compressor due to system low pressure, but it'* obvious that it did anyway. That in itself is troubling...

But bottom line is that you now have a fried reman compressor. IMO, try to get a warranty replacement if possible. The last one I bought had a 1 year replacement warrenty on it. It failed in 30 days, so I returned it and that replacement one is still working. Then make sure you get the system charged as soon as the compressor is in.

Sorry for the crappy luck... :(

Yeah, the refrigerant low pressure interlock should have inhibited A/C clutch engage, however interlocks for unknown reasons can malfunction also. It'* unfortunate in this case.

Yeah, Peter is working with us WNY people to come up with a meeting time. If it is after april 24th, I might have a spare HB for him from my 91K motor, depending on the cost of a new one. I am pretty sure it was in good condition when the engine was removed. Worth a shot anyways.

I would call or have Ryan call and start the warrenty process on it.
