Terminal side of female terminals

Is there a clicking noise from the A/C compressor clutch? YES

-Update the ECM/PCM if it does not have the latest software (see page 11-203), or substitute a known-good ECM/PCM (see page 11-7), then recheck.

If the symptom/indication goes away and the ECM/PCM was updated, troubleshooting is complete.

If the symptom/indication goes away and the ECM/PCM was substituted, replace the original ECM/PCM (see page 11-204).

NO

-Check for poor connections or loose terminals at the A/C compressor clutch relay and the ECM/PCM. If the connections are OK, check the A/C compressor clutch relay (see page 22-93). If needed, repair open in the wire between the ECM/PCM (A15), the A/C compressor clutch relay, or other parts in the A/C systems.
