AC on 96 3.0 V6

The air conditioning clutch isn't kicking in. Before it quit kicking in
at all, it put out very cold air. I checked fuses and connections and
they all seem to be good. Next, I checked the CCRM connector. Pin 21
shows normal voltage but pin 22 and 23 are dead (0 voltage). According
to my trouble shooting guide, 0 volts on 22 indicates that the PMC has
detected a problem with engine operation and won't let the clutch
engage. My pocket scan indicated that there were no codes.

Any ideals?

Re: AC on 96 3.0 V6

Instead of doing it the hard way... disconnect the low pressure cut out
switch and short across the terminals (harness side). Does the clutch
engage? If yes, there is a chance that the switch is bad or the refrigerant
charge is low.

It really doesn't matter what it did before it failed.... simply because
sh*t happens.
