Default A/C Clutch not Kicking in

Noticed today the A/C was blowing hot air. The A/C clutch never tries to kick in. I tried the battery disconnect game to no avail. Fuses appear all good. Any suggestions?

Have you checked the pressure of the R134a in the system? You could have a leak and the low pressure sensor isn't letting the compressor kick on.

Roger,
Thanks for the tip. Was low on 134-a recharged and working great now. Used Stop Leak, hopefully it does!

So the stop leak didn't stop leak. Is there a common area of leakage? Has anyone used liquid gas leak detector to find, does it work? Other suggestions?

I always used a dye and then a black light to see where it's coming out.

So does that come in a pressurized can, like the 134? I looked and couldn't find anything like that.

The one I used came in syringe with a zerk fitting on the end so I could force the dye in the system.
