ac light blinking compressor is working...

HI there need more help.
I changed the Ac relay and my compressor kicks in for about 5 seconds, then shuts off. Then the ac light goes back to blinking.

I checked the connections they appear fine.

Do you think it could be just low pressure?

IS there another relay hidden somewhere thats related to the ac?

Tried disconnecting the battery so it could reset itself but that didnt work.

Any idea's
help and thanks
Tracey

Had this happen a month ago. It ended up being the ac clutch. Had to buy factory part as aftermarket don't fit. The rubber cushion inside clutch housing let go causing load on system shutting it down. Clutch from dealer was $565 here in Canada. Hope this helps.

ac light blinking

Well it turns out it was the ac clutch. Toyota charged me over 500.00$ for the parts and 5 hours of labour. THey did the work in under 2 hours but charged me the entire labour hours. Ouch! cost over 1100.00$
No more going to the Toyota dealership thats for sure.

I believe the Dealers always go by the "Book" as to what they charge for labor. SO if you're a good mechanic and can roll out more trucks faster than what the book says then you get more dough in the wallet.. That's a pricey repair though
