Unhappy Need some help

Hi all, does anyone know anything about A/C compressors? I changed out a GM V5 A/C compressor with a rebuilt one and now the pulley on the rebuilt compressor won't engage the pump . I also made sure the two prong plug was plugged in and filled it with some r134 (i filled it with as much as i could with the pump being off). The old pump was engaging just fine til i took it off. My question is;

1) does the A/C system need a certain pressure before it'll engage the compressor (via sensor)?

2) does the 2 pins in the plug represent + and -?

3) does the body of the pump need to be grounded to the bracket?

Sorry to ask here but i couldn't find any manuals on this. TIA

Yes the system needs to be charged properly for the clutch to engage, I recommend that you take it to a service center for proper charging. Unless you have all the equipment and knowledge to do it yourself.

Well, at least i can drive it now. Before it wasn't driveable due to the serpentine belt system running thru the compressor. I have no knowledge of the system due to the tight lipped industry, kinda like asking a magician whats his secret

Do you have a volt meter to see if the AC compressor clutch pack is seeing the 12volts??????

Like R1L said, the system has to have the proper charge. But, you can jump the pressure switch on the accumulator to get the clutch to engage(for testing).
