Default AC compressor sensor/switch thing?

Not really sure what this thing is, but the wire pulled out of the sensor and now my AC doesn't work. It attaches to the top of the AC compressor. Went to Mazda and they said they don't have the sensor and I had to buy an entire new compressor, $$$$$.

It's for a '99, but from what I've seen I believe they're the same 90-05.





Let me know if you've got a junk compressor laying around that you can snag the sensor off of and name your price.

High pressure switch, I believe.

Call partsgroup. They've helped me out when the dealer can't (or won't).

Thanks let me know. I'm sure someone out there has a crapped out compressor laying around. Looks like you can pick them up for $50 on ebay, so I may just have to buy the whole thing.

I was planning on selling the entire AC system of my 90 for $50. Compressor, condensor, lines.

U wan't spares? If your gonna spend $50 might as well get everything.

That is a thermoswitch to protect the compressor from oveheating. Mine pulled out as well. Just bypass it and you will be OK, at least that is what an auto A/C mechanic told me.
