AC compressor no power.

As the title states I have no power to my ac compressor. I have checked the low pressure sensor about the evaporator and the high pressure sensor on the back of the compressor and have no power at either one. My number 6 fuse in the cab is good and not blown. Could any one help me with a wiring diagram of this electrical system? Or some knowledge about what else to check? My next guess is that the switch in the cab is bad or else its a dreaded short in the wiring somewhere...

Thanks for any and all help!

Check the plug that's at the front of the compressor. I just went thru the same issue and found that plug was broken. I spliced in a new plug and all is good.

My plug is fine, but now I think about it, in the harness between the alternator and ac compressor I found a piece of heat shrink with a diode soldered into the black wire and, tied into a few other wires, did you happen to see anything like that on yours? The way it looks it looks like it was done factory, but that's always something to check on when you see wires scabbed together like that.

No, I didn't see anything like that. I split the loom back about 6-8"
And checked all of the wires.

hmm could be some of my issue I guess, but I don't have any power to the low pressure switch and everything I have read says that is the first part of the circuit, so somewhere between the HVAC controls and the low pressure switch I have an issue I guess

Possibly, but that plug on the front of the compressor was causing mine not to work. Good luck!

Diode might be blown. Check the voltage before and after the diode. I think I have a schematic for the ac circuit, let me know if you need it.

if you could upload the schematic I would be very grateful! I cant check voltage, because I am not getting any voltage anywhere in the system, and the fuse isn't blown.

thanks for the schematic! I figured it out, had a wire making a bad connection on the back of the HVAC controls. I now have AC! Thanks everyone!
