Asked by Jun 17, 2014 at 04:14 PM about the 2008 Honda Accord EX-L V6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hello. I have a 2008 honda accord v6 3.5. The ac wasnt working this year. I have a robinair ac machine recharged the system but realized the compressor wasnt turning on. Tested for 12 volts at the compressor and had 12 volts so figured the clutch was bad. I replaced with a new compressor and clutch unit. Put it in the car, put 4 oz oil in it vacuum down no leaks, charged. the compressor turned on for a minute or so then turned off and wont turn back on. I still have power going to the compressor. I thought i got a bad compressor, got another one, put it in and same thing, but the clutch wont engage at all. i checked before i installed the compressor that the ground screw is good and grounds to the battery. Is there something i am missing? I figured if you have 12 volt to the compressor and its new, it should work? thank you for your help

Bad high or low pressure switch? Is the air gap correct on the clutch?
