Nissan Maxima Service and Repair Manual: Magnet clutch

Description

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).

A/C SWITCH OFF: COMP REQ SIG Off
FAN CONTROL DIAL ON: FAN REQ SIG On
FAN CONTROL DIAL OFF: FAN REQ SIG Off

8.CHECK REFRIGERANT PRESSURE SENSOR

Check refrigerant pressure sensor.
