I have a problem with my 06 aveo. it is summer and the ac doesnt work.
This is the current status:
-the green light inside the car on the AC button turns on fine.
-the Compressor Does not Rotate when i turn the temp down and put the air on full blast with the AC button Pushed
-I have a Pressure gauge that hooks up to the Low side, it is one of those that u can buy at autozone to refill your freeon,
I did not fill anything in yet because when i hook it up the gauge pops over all the way to the end. meaning that there is too much pressure on the low side. right?
what i want to do is find out what my problem is and maybe find out why the compressor does not kick on.
I also could not find/reach the compressor from the top to meter if ir gets 12V or not.
should i give it a try from the bottom?
I would be happy for any kind of help or pictures. that would help me fix the problem.
I am pretty handy so I thought i would give it a try cause i dont want to bring it in to find out a relay was bad and thats it. I also dont know everything about car AC so plz treat me like a Newbee.
(FYI I tried to find a threat that talks about this topic but could not find it. so if you could post a link to a different topic that would help too)
Thank you for your help
