91 Metro Accelerator Switch; Got MOST of the Bits Now this switch thing....

Hello everyone again, I visited my local wrecking yard and found to my surprise, a recently scrapped 91 metro with AC! Got ALL the bits I needed, but the sad news....NO ACCELERATOR SWITCH!!! :'( This model was an automatic, and had everything...but the accelerator switch...

What is the purpose of the accelerator switch?

My best guess is when you floor the accelerator pedal, it cuts the compressor out as to free up horsepower and/or not blow the compressor up from lotsa rpms, only to turn it back on once the accelerator pedal is released

Does any one have this switch?


Is the switch normally closed, or normally open? is the circuit completed/opened when you press down on the accelerator pedal, or is it when the pedal is released? (just in case I want to make my own switch lol!)

In the image above, component 18 is the accelerator switch.

Thank you all!

You got it, turns off the compressor under heavy acceleration. Normally open, it grounds out when you put it to the floor. You don't HAVE to have it, but your A/C won't cut off when you might just need those couple of extra horses.... :scared

My first Metro, an XFI, had aftermarket A/C and didn't have an accelerator switch. When I really needed those extra five hp I'd just punch the button on the dash.

Or if you need the A/C to remain on, you can ask your passenger to step out to restore the power to weight ratio. :rofl
