Howzit all. I have a 2001 Frontier Crew Cab with a V-6 5spd. Recently my ac has been going on and off. When the compressors on it's ice cold. But the compressors been going off and on too much lately. The system does'nt have a leak because when it's on I checked the psi and it reads about 50psi. Someone told me there's a sensor called a thermo amplifier that controls the compressor. It's located behind the glove box. Apparently it's known to go bad on the Frontier and Xterra models often. I'm thinking of changing out this part. But before I do does anyone know if it's possible to "jump" the sensor to bypass it to see if the compressor stays on? Has anyone done it or have any ideas on it? I'd like to try and isolate this as being the problem before I spend any money on this issue.
