a/c out on 06 2500

Recommended Posts

Hey fellas, I need some help on an 06 2500. The truck belongs to a friend of mine an he called me an said his ac went out! I told him i would try an help out on this! Well I had a friend that works from dodge check it out, he said it was a bad clutch on the ac compressor. I order new compressor for the truck, an today I was driving the truck down the road with the old components still on, an the ac started working fine! Turned the truck off now ac is dead again:banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead: Can anyone tell me where I need to look at on this thing?:pray::pray::pray: The truck is an 06 2500 ctd with 5.9 cr

mine spins with the truck off. i believe they all should spin when the clutch is not engaged. you might have a loose or damaged wire in the connecter or the harnes causing it to come on and off.

:banghead:Ok I've done some checking, when you have truck running and a light tester at the wire on the clutch, the light tester will light up 3 or 4 times and compressor tries to kick in. So I made a jumper wire from hot side on battery and ran to the wire for clutch, compressor kicks in and runs and cools good! So where do I go from there?

Check the AC compressor relay to see if its wore out. The compressor wiring is fairly simple. +12V -> Fuse -> Relay -> AC Clutch Relay signal is from the PCM which has the hi limit switch and the low limit switch. So check the relay socket for signal from the PCM. (85 & 86) should have power and a ground present when the A/C is on.

sounds like you need a wiring diagram and start following the wires until you find the bad connection or wire then repair it and you should be good to go. i dont know if mopar has an 06 diagram in the down load section. i dont think it would be hard to come by on the internet. Electrical is a weak spot for me and i am not good on procedure. i just looked at mine and there is only couple of wires to trace, but wiring diagram is going to help alot.

i buy some of my stuff from rock auto. they do have good pricing. the shipping prices are somewhat inconsistant. i just order for my 06 dakota, front whell bearing hub assembly, upper contol arm w/baljoint, and lower ball joint. shipping just under $10. thats gotta weigh 40 pounds. i cant figure that one out.
