question,would it not have a relay?
in the outside compartment theres a ton of relays.
I have had to wiggle the jake brake relay before,to get it to work.
Maybe the relay is bad?

Keep up with the suggestion - I'm learning allot about where things are.
Hi Harold,

I’m not sure how much help they’ll be but for schematics on later model Blue Bird coaches like yours, you can Click Here and enter your coach’s Body number (Note: you left off the “F” at the beginning of your body number – it should be F133751. The F has to be included for a valid body number search).

There are also schematics here on WOG for later model coaches but I’m not sure which (if any) apply to LX’s:

Air conditioning is fixed. Randy was correct (surprise! surprise!) The electrical directory on the door under the driver toll window showed a HVAC Control Relay marked LTC40 only. There is a Bosch relay in that location even though this is a LX. Relay was bad and was the problem.

We also found one of the 100 amp relays at the top of the compartment (White Rodgers RBM Type 124-105111) was very hot to the touch. I'm assuming it is going bad and should be replaced, correct?

Guys, thanks for the help and suggestions.

I noted on another thread that due to my own stupidity I had to rely on my dash air to keep me cool. I observed an interesting oddity in how it works on my coach.

When the coach was at idle and sitting, the fans blew cold and hard when on high - downright pleasant when you have no other AC. But, the faster I went (think 65-70), the less air I got out of the dash vents - like the fans slowed down. When I slowed down, the air output would rise - with the highest output at idle.

Any ideas why it would behave this way?

You were driving faster than the fan could blow and you were running up the air stream

No idea really so I will throw some dung in the game.
It seems as I remember when towing something heavy, & running the a/c on a van I had that as the engine needed additional power the computer would somehow back down the a/c thus providing more power for the engine.
Maybe something along those lines

Dash AC quit again. Compressor appears to be locked up. The clutch got very hot and now it won't engage. I'd like to go to a more modern compressor if that can be done, something like a Sanden. Has anyone done this? Kit available? I'd appreciate any and all suggestions.
