I got the a/c working in 2017 but since last year the a/c compressor clutch kept slipping and screeching. I thought maybe it was from a weak battery or overcharged system but it also sometimes didn't try to spin at all and the pcm wasn't commanding a/c on in the datalog at those times.

I jumped the low pressure switch plug and the compressor kicked on and the clutch didn't slip, the pressure gauges showed it was in the proper range.

So I cleaned the switch terminals with a battery brush and tapped on the switch with a ratchet a few times and now it seems to work fine, turns on eveytime, no clutch slipping. At least if the switch ever needs replacing, the system doesn't have to be discharged to do so.

Rotated the Chevy row and drove AstroCreep, get home tonight and rotate Dodge row and dig out brown sugar. Not bragging but if I don't drive them all it is the only way to stay on top of maintenance, plus all of mine together are worth way less than Love shack.😀
