Adding Freon To A/C System

Need instructions for adding Freon (134a) to a 1988 Cadillac, Coupe DeVille. Where is the compressor safety cut-out switch located and what is the procedure for jumping it out and charging the system? Thanks for your help.

Unless you have converted the system I think it takes R-12.The switch is located near the back of the engine compartment on the larger diameter a/c line.You will have to disconnect the battery for at least 30 seconds prior to attempting to charge the system or the compressor will not operate.
