What would cause my freon to go low after my radiator fan going out asi from a leak?

Asked by Jun 30, 2016 at 10:12 AM about the 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

A/c was in good working condition. Recently my radiator fan relay went out.
After i repaired it the a/c was not working any longer. It turned out that the
freon had hit a low level which caused the clutch not to engage. Can the fan
breaking have caused a leak? Thank you in advance.

Run a pressure test on the system with dye to find out where the leak is.

It is possible that the pressure went too high and the blow off valve popped open to relieve pressure due to the inoperative fan.
