A/C problem on '96

Went to use a/c for the first time this year and found it wasn't working. The light comes on, but no cold air. Checking under hood, I could see the compressor attempt to spin for a couple of seconds, then click off and continue to repeat this on and on. I am bringing the ZJ to the shop next week, but if anyone can give me a heads up on the problem it would be a great help.

Its probably the bearing inside the compresser because I had this same problem but mine still works! The bearing is going bad on it so its only a matter of time. Does your Aux fan kick on at all, when you turn on your A/C? If so then your fluid level is ok so that means your compresser is ok. if it doesnt turn on check your fluid level if it is fine then it could be your compresser.

Hope i could help, GOOD LUCK

Had the same problem with my 93 ZJ. Took it to the dealer, the refrigerant was low. They added some more and put in dye to see if they could find a leak. Worked for a few weeks but started working less efficiently. The dye did not show a leak in the tubing so the dealer figured the leak was in the compressor seal (which was common for that compresor). Results... I traded the jeep in on a 2000...
