AC not woking 1997 Nissan sentra

Asked by Jun 18, 2017 at 05:03 PM about the 1997 Nissan Sentra STD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

AC Clutch does not engage

4 Answers


usually if a car is low on freon, the clutch will not engage. Check the PSI of the low-side AC pressure line. Somewhere there should be a sticker on your hood indicating factory PSI pressure. Use a ac recharge kit and refill if needed.

Thanx for explanation. Weird after 4 days it just started working???? Joe


you may be at the cusp of having enough freon... it may cut out again but hey, if its not broke, don't fix it : )

You were correct. It happened again. I will get it checked. Thanx for your input
