Compressor Input wire

I got a fan controller from DCC and it works great. I want to hook it up to my AC, but I can't find the compressor input wire. It takes the signal from there to run the fan at 50% when the AC is activated. Thanks.

I dont know about your car but on my 97 there is a small connector on the back of the compressor that plugs in. You would need to figure out if you need a positive or negative signal for your fan controller and tap the appropriate wire. Have fun with the multimeter.

There is a small connector with two wires towards the front of my compressor, near the belt. I tried using a test light to see if that was it, but nothing was happening.

I know that that controls the compressor because I had unplugged it at one point and the compressor wouldn't come on.

If you want I can grab a multimeter from my house and I can meet you somewhere. I am on vacation through thursday. PM me if you want.
