Default 2007 C-RV A/C Quit....Recharge ?

Yesterday, in interstate traffic, my 2007 C-RV A/C started blowing warm air. Turned it off, and checked it later at home to find compressor clutch not activating. Checked F20 7.5A fuse OK. I suspect low refrigerant.

Question: Can refrigerant be recharged when compressor is not kicking in ? Will refrigerant flow into system when compressor not running ? Could attempting to recharge under this condition cause damage ?

you can charge system to get some freon in due to need pressure switch to turn compressor on. , charge system and then run eng, if pressure does not engage compressor you may have another problem. be sure to add lubricant or your compressor will lock up.
