Speedo /AC Trouble shooting

Postby ihredneck » Wed Dec 06, 2017 1:20 pm

Been working on putting together a true basket case 1992 W350 G360 4x4.
Got everything figured out except two things.
-AC wont engage
-Speedometer won't work.

As far as the AC I flushed everything, converted to R-134, New expansion valve, accumulator, AC cycle switch (modified to bypass PCM), vacuum pulled and charged. I can hotwire the compressor and it works but it wont otherwise.

For the speedometer, I haven't verified the VSS is working or the gear reducer, but I'm mostly curious does the PCM control this being it is a 92? I have had to bypass it with an external regulator so I know the PCM is bad.

Found the issue.

Speedo wasn't working because one of the signal wires from the speed sensor was broke

AC wouldn't engage because of a bad crank sensor. Had tested previously but must have failed sometime. It only would put out 5V regardless of dampener position.

Also, a quick note on the AC. I couldn't figure out how the system worked controls wise. A ground is supplied to the compressor via a body ground. the power is supplied from the AC relay when engaged by the PCM. The PCM knows to engage the relay when it receives a signal from the crank sensor AND a ground from the AC controls in the console that travels through the pressure sensor and AC cycle switch by the passenger fender.

Hope this helps someone.

I'm pretty sure my crankshaft position sensor is bad as well. I guess I'll finally change it.

You can check the CPS to see if it is bad.
