Sure looks like it would plug into the high pressure switch behind the compressor. Don't look like a factory plug I seen tho. :confused:

New compressor doesn't use the plug, so it was cut off and the wire sealed or ??? Not really sure on that.
A temporary fix usually becomes a permanent solution, therefore it does not exist.

Single lead wires like that one I've only seen (at the front of the engine) on the temperature sensor maybe (or is your van 2 leads), and on the blower.

At the back of the engine, the timing lead connector; and on the block, near the oil filter, the gauge temp sensor.

Again, this are all the single lead connectors I recall for now on my engine type.

I'll take a look at the lean connector on the back of my compressor and see if it's the same tomorrow ( I'm in the middle of repairing my A/C anyway and have to wait for parts to come in anyway. )

no both compressors - old one and new one do not have plug like this so that 100% is not a a/c comp plug

at the front of the engine thast possible because the guys from a/c service changing the compresor - iam shure that they have destroy a vaacum line from engine to vaacum valve and maybe thas his fault too!

temperature sensor thats interesting because after this service i notice bigger gas consumption!!!

please tell me or show mi pics where this sensors are to check!

thank You!

Okay, I was looking through my factory service manuals and what I found was that all single wire connectors shaped like that were used to signal the blower motor to come on. I'd start by checking your blower function.

Vacuum ball could be leaking. Check valve could be clogged.
