2002 Cherokee A/C Not Working
 
My A/C stopped working all of a sudden. I drove to a friends house with cold air coming out of the vents and when leaving I had no A/C. Prior to it stopping the air was blowing cold so I don't see how it could be low on R134. The compressor does not switch on. I checked the heater control connectors and I checked the fuse and relay under the hood and they are all good. I pulled the plug off the compressor and checked for voltage and there is none when switched on. The system does not have a low pressure switch. There is a switch on the line by the condenser on the passenger side. Could it be this? Anyway to test this?

Turns out it DID need R134!

And was the system checked for leaks?

I added a can of r134 with dye and looked with a light. The only place I think I see something is where this switch type device is attached to the condenser line on the front passenger side. Does anyone know what this is? I don't think it's called a low pressure switch but is like one.

Its in fact called a pressure transducer and its installed with an O-ring on the discharge line close to the condensor. This transducer can be removed without loosing the refrigerant, because the connection has a schader type valve, which will close when removing the transducer.

Thanks...I'll try changing the O-ring.
