  • Location of magnetic clutch relay 2002 TX

    Hi there.
    the a/c has stopped working
    Light comes on when i press the button but appears nothing starts under the hood.
    there are a few tiny bubbles when engine is at 1500rpms as per Toyota workshop manual. So possibly a regas is in order.
    trying to check the magnetic clutch relay but cant seem to locate in the fuse box. According to the workshop manual its located in a seperate box to the main heater relay (this tested ok).
    im a newb at this so no doubt its right under my nose. Its supposedly marked MG CLT but i cant see it . So if anyone knows where it is i wld be most grateful or any suggestions as to what else i can check.
    The drive belts all look to be running smooth.


    many thanks

    ... i have found a supplement to the morkshop manual and from what i can figure out it appears to be in the glove box. I will check 2morro as out of light but any help in confirming this wld be appreciated.

    thanks again.

      When you have the A/C switched on is the compressor spinning? You should be able to see if it is engaging or not, as well as hear it engage. If your unsure with the engine off try spinning the clutch with the A/C off then on.

      If the clutch is engaging then your issue is not a relay fault.

        Hi Lee thanks for you response. If I turn the car on and bridge btw the battery and the clutch and it moves but the compressor doesnt. If I turn it on test the cable that leads to the clip into the clutch that has no reading on the multimeter. Have dble checked that HTR RLY and thats ok. From what I understand next down the line is the magnetic clutch relay but not 100%.

        Cheers Kat

          So have located the mg clt rly which is located on the amplifier for tx's with sgl a/c. Thats wking ok. It appears that the peoblem is btw the relay bx and the compressor. So will run a cable from battery to a switch in the cabin then to the compressor - bypass the wire thats gone. Then whwn i have a bit more $$ and time do the proper fix.
          thanks for the suggestions and help.

            With the engine running does the compressor pulley and clutch spin as an assembly?

            Your checking for voltage at the plug?

            On my 90 series the A/C clutch power cable was crushed under the battery tray, shorted and as a result lost dash lights & climate control when I switched the A/C on, perhaps check the wiring harness near the batery tray.
