'01 Grand - A/C Question - Low Pressure Cut-Off Switch

My wife's '01 Grand's A/C needs a charge and the low pressure cut off switch is preventing the compressor from coming on.

Can anyone tell me where the switch is, and how do I jump it to allow me to re-charge the system.

Thanks

So, its completely empty? Otherwise you wouldn't need to jump it to charge it. If it is completely empty, you will need to find and fix the leak or you will be charging it constantly.

How exactly do I jump it? I just don't want to fry anything.

Yeah it's completely empty....It seems to be a very small leak, so I bought the sealer and recharge kit....I figured I'd give it a shot before spending money.

The AC compressor clutch will have a 2 pin connection to it. It simply uses 12volts and a ground to engage the clutch. Just jumper 12 volts and a ground to it and start the recharge.

I ended up finding the low pressure switch and jumping the harness side with a paper clip to override the low pressure cut off switch and trick the clutch into engaging.

Thanks all
