Loss of compressor voltage, compressor clutch coil circuit open.

Gents, thanks for your relies. I think first I need to determine if there is 12 volts going to the compressor. There are two sensors on the back of this compressor (High pressure and ???). I need to rule these our as causing the no start condition. If there is power and the sensors are good, I will run a jumper to the clutch to determine if this items has failed, if good then I'll move to the electronics. Is this a good path or have you seen this condition. Thanks for you help. Doug.

Sounds like a good plan of attack, Doug. The other switch on the back of the compressor is most likely the low pressure cut out. HTH. -Jim
