So after adding that 24 oz., time to turn on the engine AND AC and blower fan, and test to see if 12-14 volts positive is getting to the compressor to activate (engage) the AC electric clutch.


If not, temporarily rig up a wire with in-line fuse and touch the compressor wire to battery positive terminal, and see if that engages the AC clutch and the compressor starts turning.


Stuff like a bad switch, bad bower resistor can easily prevent voltage from reaching your compressor. Just don't "throw parts at it" !!!!
