I got the Air solenoids in today, and they are 120 volt AC...

So what do I need to do to run them in my Jeep?

Thanks.

I run the 120 volt for my on board air with no problem. All they are is contacts rated for a a specific amperage, not voltage per say.

Seth, are you talking about the pressure switch with the big
gray plastic cover on it????????? If so mine said the same and
it works just fine.

I don't think the 120 VAC coil in the solenoid will work on 12VDC, switches yes, coil no.

No, I have 2 air solenoids, and on them they say:

Volts/HZ.............Watts
120/60................5.4
110/50


So i assume it wont work with the cars 12 volt battery

OS, I think Seth is talking about the air pressure actuated switch
that the 12V supply current goes through on it's way to the clutch
on the compressor pulley.


Edit: OOPS, guess not. :emb4:

If those are the leads to the coil they won't work with 12VDC.
