First let me thank all of you in advance for your help.
I need someone with pretty good knowledge or experience to help me with the following AC issue.
My 01 T&C FWD 3.3L has an AC issue. when I bought it the ac clutch was out. i replaced the clutch, vaccumed the system out and it held vacuum fine , so I guess no leaks. recharged and I believe oil and freon level to be pretty close. new ac clutch clicks in and out just fine.
the issue is with the performance of the AC. the compressor clutch engages but the 2 under hood elec fans do not come on. the fans are good and will operate with engine temp. I think it is the AC pressure transducer (part # 5019881AB).?? anywhere to buy this other than the stealership??
I have already replaced the fan relay located on the cross member behind the bumper and - no change to the AC or fan operation. the AC blows cool when you first start it but as the compressor head psi rises the air becomes warm and stays that way. I think this is from the fans not coming on and cooling the condersor core. I tested the operation of the fans on my other van (97) and they come on with seconds of the AC being engaged. unfortanally this van does not use the same transducer for me to swap and test for function. I have no problems with engine temp or over heating. I have no codes or check engine lights. the rest of the van operates just fine. does anyone know how to test the transducer ? or other ideas on this AC issue?
