When I purchased my nearly non-running RRC the PO showed me that the AC worked but he had to fiddle with the button to get the light to come on. I didn’t actually have time to verify if the air did in fact get colder.

Fast forward to now, post engine repair and I have no AC. I wasn’t surprised, but now I’m trying to figure out the cause. Here’s what I know:

1. Light on the AC button doesn’t come on and for that matter, none of the buttons on that cluster seem to work. And yes I checked the connections.

2. The main AC fuse is good

3. There is coolant in the system judging by the little view window. No idea what I’m looking for there, I just see that it’s not empty.

4. Compressor does not kick on

Is there a way to manually kick on the compressor? Not sure where to start.

follow the diagram on rave. check your head pressures, the back of the connector fails and thus the switch tends to follow, there are a few relays in the system. rave is your friend.

Is this the RAVE? I downloaded it from this site, but in a lot of these discussions I can’t seem to find the info referenced.

I should clarify that in this case I was able to find the section on air conditioning, but in regard to most electrical questions the referenced sections seem to be missing. Anyway, I want to make sure I am looking at the same source being referenced.

You can jump the compressor at the relay
It should be in the passengers foot weld
Left side that’s how I got mine to take it charge

There is an electrical trouble soothing manual too, let me know if you need it, I can send you the file
That would be really helpful, thanks!

95 uses a nippondenso hevac system, this system uses a 4 prong relay near the blower motor, if it fails the hevac will not run. for the 95 it is best to reffer to the discovery 1 section, it has better coverage on the later hevac than the range rover section as d1 had been fitted with denso hevac a few yrs before the 95 classic..
