    A/C Not working on '97 Saab 900 SE Torbo

    My A/c stopped working. I've gone through all of the checks in the owners manual, and did not find a problem. Curiously the ambient temperature gauge is reading about 9 degrees higher than actual. Has anyone experienced this problem? I suspect this may be a coincidence. Is my problem likely to be coolant loss or a malfunction in the compressor clutch?

    Hi Tomlon
    Welcome to Saabscene - probably worth getting the A/C gas checked first especially if it has not been done for some time. There is a pressure switch in the system which cuts off the A/C altogether if the gas pressure has dropped. If there is a leak it can detected by dye in the system when tested. If pure A/C rather than climate control then I don't think the ambient temp is relevant unless about 2 degrees C or freezing when the A/C cuts off.(Can't remember exactly at what point) Others may know more - clutch problems usually present as slippage first and intermittent/poor A/C - Can you hear the clutch clicking in or out at all? Try a search here as adjusting the clutch has been discussed before. This topic may benefit more by being moved to the GM900/9-3 forum where others may view - admin - can you help with this?
