ac compressor wont engage with amber ac light button engaged but fresh air and circulate levels, appear to run at normal temps. i checked the 7.5vlt amp fuse and replaced it with a 10amp, no change. put 7.5 back and same issue. im thinking its either the belt or the compressor ground or it ceased under load. heard it grind a few times, when engaging. had 37k miles at that time but has been quite since.
only 41k miles now and would think these compressors last? how many have had similar problems with their compressors? im thinking maybe i kicked some dirt up in the compressor and it ceased. i might try pressure washing around those areas. anyone hear if they have a safety cut off to prevent it from ceasing under any stress loads?
