Unhappy AC is dead?

I realized during today's heat wave that my MY01 Rs's AC doesn't work.

Does anyone know why the AC could fail? I have an UR crank pulley, & Weapon R intake. I used to have an AFC in there buy i took it out because it was causing all kinds of issues.

I've taken off the Belt cover in the engine bay and have stripped out the trunk and rear seating area at times and was wondering if any of these mods could cause the AC to die?

i've heard this happen to a buddy of mine and i was trying to see what could have caused this.

Lastly it did work at some point, just not any more.

thanks in advance,
larry

check the connectors on the top of the compressor.. make sure that they are plugged in .... dealers tend to miss this at presale inspection..

Since you said it worked at one time, does the compresser cycle now? open the hood look at the compresser, turn the a/c on see if the center of the a/c compressor goes on and off, if it doesnt cycle, either there is no refrigerent in the system (ie it leaked out) I doubt it on a brand new car...but check you condensor (in front of the radiator) for holes and such or signs of damage from rocks...trace the a/c lines as best you can and look for signs of leakage you will usually see refrigerent oil all caked up with dirt where the leak is, I dont know if scoobies come with tracer dye, I think they do...you can use a uv light to find the leak cause the dye will glow.

You can jump the cycling switch connector and see if the a/c compressor clutch engages but I dont know if you want to start doing all that when the car is under warrenty.

oh and just for the hell of it check all the electrical connectors like some said the one on the compressor, you may have knocked it when doing your mods?

Well i've checked all the hoses and i've checked the connectors and the center part of the pulley doesn't spin when the ac is on.

I've tried looking for leaks and there seems to be none. I think they just wasn't any much fluid in the car when they sold it to me. Dam you Carlson Subaru! Dam you! Sorry moderator types if your upset about the D word. but i must say i hate that place.
Ok thanks for the help guys.

Question

I hate to be mr obvious, but did you check the fuse? I've had things stop working, and almost tore the car apart, then a friend pulled the fuse and handed it to me. blown
