Nissan Maxima Service and Repair Manual: Magnet clutch

Description

SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

Nissan Maxima. SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

A/C auto amp. controls A/C compressor operation by ambient temperature and signal from ECM.

Low Temperature Protection Control A/C auto amp. will turn the A/C compressor ON or OFF as determined by a signal detected by ambient sensor.

When ambient temperature is greater than 4C (39F), the A/C compressor turns ON. The A/C compressor turns OFF when ambient temperature is less than 2.5C (37F).

Component Function Check

1.FUNCTION INSPECTIONS

  1. Press AUTO switch. AUTO is indicated on the display.
  2. Press the A/C switch.
  3. Check that the indicator of the A/C switch turns on. Check visually and by sound that the compressor is operating. (The discharge air temperature or fan speed varies depending on the ambient temperature, invehicle temperature, and temperature setting.)
  4. Press the A/C switch again.
  5. Check that the indicator of the A/C switch turns OFF. Check visually and by sound that the compressor stops.
