When I use to work on autos I knew how to jump across limiter switch on GM,Ford autos to charge AC.I have 96 Grand Caravan and need to add freon but I don't know how to,or even if I can,Jump across switch to engage compressor,or if there is a switch,but I do know it ain't running.Is it possible and how do I do it?
As I said it's a 96 Grand Caravan,3.3 engine,single air.
hope you can help,
Dave

You really should have the leak repaired because 134A leaks differantly than R--12 does and you just run into problems.

No! A/C is NOT a DIY repair without the proper tools, service procedures and service information. A proper repair cannot be affected without these necessary elements.

Gone are the days of "topping it off". That is not effective with R134A.

You are correct JoeF . And I actually have been in this situation and the topping of 134A don't help it just takes a small leak and it stops cooling. By the way you are quick at responding Joe.

Thanks---I try to be timely where possible.

Yes, A/C repair is no longer DIY type repairs. You need the right tools, information, and know-how. It can be learned, but it takes an investment to do it and do it correctly and safely.
