Default AC Clutch

Where in the hell is the plug for it? I'm trying to get AC running again after being off for 2 years and I can't remember where the chassis side of the plug is at. Anyone care to take a quick pic or something? What color code is the chassis end of it? The only lead I can find in the area is black/red, but the clutch has a black/white... so I don't think that's it.

Thanks.

Someone has AC on this forum... please take 5 minutes to follow the only wire from the compressor the the chassis side connector (one wire) and let me know where it enters the harness.... it's hot down here!

if you are trying to kick on the compressor, just jumper the pressure switch plug with a paper clip.

I just checked the wiring diagrams from '94-'97 and none of them look like what I have. The '93 is the closest.

My pressure switch appears to be mounted on the top of the AC compressor. The wire from the chassis is in series like this:

chassis ->pressure switch -> clutch ->ground

the chassis plug that I found doesn't appear to go high when the switch is clicked on... I'm think'n maybe the relay is frozen or I plugged into the wrong wire. Is there another pressure switch somewhere that I just don't see?
