The AC clutch connector is the only electrical plug that goes to the AC compressor. It is right behind the pulley either on the top or the bottom, I don't know which because I don't have a Zetec.

I didn't say bridge that connector. You should disconnect it to prevent the AC compressor from turning. You should also find a way to move it back away from the pulley so that it doesn't get caught in the belt.

The connector you want to bridge is the low pressure switch. Your AC system is protected by 2 switches, one low pressure, and one high pressure. The high pressure switch won't open unless the pressure exceeds it's limit, but the low pressure switch only closes when the pressure is high enough in the system. That switch is located on top of the accumulator. Unplug the connector to the switch and bridge the connector.

Did you try the electronic odometer trick to verify that the temp sensor is working correctly? Drive the car around and see if the fans come on at 115C? Are you losing coolant?

I did the odometer but the codes you have me weren't in the 30 listed on my car.


So I unplug the ac clutch and tuck it away.

Where are the two connectors I need to bridge?
