Default 92 accord AC

AC not working in 92 Accord. Holding charge, appears that the compressor
doesn't kick on when the switch is pressed. Any ideas?

Could be overcharged. System will respond the same.

A common problem on these units is a bad low pressure switch. Unless
you have recently had is serviced and had a chance to overcharge, I
would suspect this.

You can jump the switch to test if it's working. Probably not a good
idea to leave it jumped if's bad. It's there for a reason, most
likely to protect the compressor. On a '91 DX it's on the drivers
side someplace near the canister with the viewing glass.

I tried jumping my sensor years ago to see if there was too little gas
for the compressor to work. When jumped the compressor worked. I
then filled the system (converted to r134a) and worked fine for a few
more years when I had to refill again. It's not worth it for me to
fix such a small leak on such an old car.
