On a 1988 Olds Toronado where is the low pressure cut off switch for the compressor located?

what is the problem? I only ask because any A/C work/repairs should be done by a qualified tech to prevent unwanted/un-needed injury.

the compressor will not engage even after it has been charged. I can get it to kick in if I unplug it & run leads directly to the battery.

It's usually inline on one of the A/C tubes. Hit any GM dealer for an exploded view from the parts book.

I agree with Darrell.

Go to the discussion forum. You can find all the information you need to work on your a/c system safely on the net if you look for it. a/c.com is a good start.

You can even get certified as a "tech", for about $20, on-line, quite easily.

Your specific question, asked at the a/c.com forum, will probably yield you a specific answer.

You should find it on a cylinder looking object "accumillator" usually near the firewall .

Joe has the best info though. The dealer will get you right where you want to be.
