Yea i press the A/C button with the slider on cold and on panel and turn the fan on full and the green A/C light doesn't even come on and the compressor doesn't engage. Where do i begin?

when they replaced my compressor, they had to change a fuse in the underdash fuse box cuz the compressor wasn't engaging. check those fuses

ive been wondering that since my compressor doesnt work, would it be easier to install the CC now? do you have to replace the compressor when you install it?

You need to resolder your circuitboard on the stock control because it looses continuity due to heat and time. Took me about an hour when I did mine (same culprit, AC light won't turn on and no cold air). But now I have a JDM climate control so no manual temp setting :cool: :D

You don't need to take the compressor out if you swap to a CC but you will need to take your dash and evaporator out.

Keep in mind guys...if your AC compressor did mess up, it IS on recall for 4th gens. Might save you some $$. Honda reimbursed me for the repairs. This has been discussed before though, just run a search on 'AC compressor recall' or something.

I just bought the car, If i called Honda do you think i could still get reimbursed?
is there any official site showing the VIN #'s that are affected?

I called Honda and the very kind lady told me about this recall.
Hope the person you talked to was right. I've been searching

Recall Search
1996-1998 front lower ball joints recall

It's strange that I didn't find the balancer seal recall on 94-96 Preludes here????:confused:

I'll call the dealerships Monday - My compressor is not turning on=[
