I have an 86 monte that we just cut the entire harness off at the fender that goes to the computer.the ac works fine on this car.
now ive got an 84 that we did the same too and I cant get the ac clutch to engage.
do I actually need a part of the computer to get the ac to run properly?

the only way I could get the clutch to engage was to ground the wire in this pic.once I got it running for a while it blew the blow off valve on the compressor loosing all of the Freon.
does this sound strange?would the computer have stopped it from building up too much pressure?[Linked Image]

You just blew $100 as you can sell good uncut harness for that amount. It is not hard to remove the harness intact.
