Re: 01 Chevy Venture Cooling Fans & AC Not Working

No codes are ever set for low refrigerant pressure- refrigerant pressure changes with temperature- so if it is below freezing out- there is low refrigerant pressure, and you would not want a code for something that happens every time ambient drops below freezing. If fan(s) work with engine temp, they should work with a/c if and only if a/c needs them- if no a/c pressure, or low a/c pressure, then fans do not come on- simple as that- you don't need the fans when running highway speeds- so that is why they let the a/c head pressure determine the need for the fans.....
