    All fixed! It turned out that my car had the incorrect temp sensor in it. It had the head temp sensor in there instead of the coolant temp sensor. They have a completely different set of values for the pcm to read so the computer thought the car was overheating and not letting the compressor turn on. It was also affecting cold starts. All fixed now though! Thanks for your help, Evil!

    Yessir, me too! Now I can concentrate on other things, like brake upgrades and bodywork.

    Glad you got it figured out. I totally let this thread slip my mind. I also dont know why i didnt think about the temp sensors.

    I had issues with temp sensors not with ac but with the temperature inside the cab that told me I was close to over heating . Changed them out no problems now glad you're golden

    Yeah it's running great now. Went on two short road trips, yesterday and today, a couple hundred miles total. Ran great and a/c worked awesome and engine ran excellent. Very happy with this swap now. Funny how 1 little sensor can throw things off so badly.

    It is odd that one thing can gum up the works on whole vehicle
