What happens when the AC relay goes out?
When a relay is starting to fail, it may give weakened or intermittent power to the compressor, which will result in weakened or intermittent function of the AC. The AC may function fine in one instance, and then shut off, or deliver inconsistent performance in another. via
How can you tell if a relay is bad? (video)
How do you test a AC relay?
The only tool required to check a relay is a multimeter. With the relay removed from the fuse box, the multimeter set to measure DC voltage and the switch in the cab activated, first check to see if there are 12 volts at the 85 position in the fuse box where the relay plugs in (or wherever the relay is located). via

What is the function of relay in air conditioner?
Air conditioner relays control the flow of electricity into an air conditioning system. Time-delay relays (TDRs) specify the amount of time before opening or closing the circuit to allow voltage to flow through the system. via
How do you check if a relay is working?
Can a relay get stuck on?
When relay contacts open and close, small sparks called arcs can eventually cause them to stick together. Also some types of corrosion can cause them to stick. Sticking relay contacts can be cleaned with a burnishing tool or with fine grit emery paper, if you can get to them. via
What would cause an AC clutch to not engage?
Several reasons may cause the AC clutch not to stay engaged. A blown-out fuse, a low-pressure switch lockout, a bad clutch coil, a gap in the wire to the clutch coil, a bad engine coolant temperature switch, or poor ground. via
Why is there no power going to my AC compressor?
The first and most obvious thing to do when your compressor won't start is to make sure that the unit is receiving power. It is always possible that a fuse has been blown or that a breaker has been tripped. If such issues occur regularly, you should have an electrician take a look. via

Can I drive without AC relay?
You will be fine as long as you don't need or want AC in your car. Your AC pulley is a free spinning pulley that has a clutch on it. It will spin freely until you turn the air conditioning on. If the clutch doesn't work properly, you will still be able to drive your car. via
What does a relay switch do?
Relays are switches that open and close circuits electromechanically or electronically. Relays control one electrical circuit by opening and closing contacts in another circuit. As relay diagrams show, when a relay contact is normally open (NO), there is an open contact when the relay is not energized. via
What's the purpose of a relay?
Relays are the switches which aim at closing and opening the circuits electronically as well as electromechanically. It controls the opening and closing of the circuit contacts of an electronic circuit. via
