Hello. My A/C is not working. No Pressure low/hi in compressor. A/C Clutch NOT engaging. so.....
Dealer wants to just rip everything out for $5000 !---I want to fix it.--whatever it is.
I want to get the clutch engaged and see if compressor pressurizes or leaks. kind of trouble shoot the easy stuff.

Questions are:
1- could it be a fault a/c fuse in relay J44 ? if yes how can I tell if I don't have vag.
2- How can I manually engage the clutch...safely ??

Thanks in advance to those that reply.
