air conditioner compressor

I was driving with the ac on when I noticed it was getting colder and colder. So I shut off the ac but it stayed very cold. So I looked under the hood and noticed that even though the ac was off the clutch was still engaged. It got so cold inside even with the fan off that I had to pull #20 fuze which said ms clutch. Now does anyone know what I need to do. Pulling the fuze released the clutch. So is it a bad relay or a short in the wiring.
Thank you

PS If it is the relay where is it located. The manual only lists the fuses not the relays.

Re: air conditioner compressor

Care to share what kind of car you have?

Clutch relay is probably stuck on. There is an updated/improved relay available.

Re: air conditioner compressor

On a Civic forum, nice.

Replace the clutch relay..

Relay position #12 in the pic here (CRV and Civic share a lot of parts)









Ask your dealer parts department for Honda part number 39794-SDA-A05.

Original failure prone relay brand is OMRON
Updated relay brand is MITSUBA

HTH
