Hi my name is ***** ***** with the aircon does the light come on the switch when turned on? does the compressor start working when you switch the aircon on? if these aren't working the fan will not start to spin, has the system been serviced lately? aircon systems are recommended to be serviced and gas topped up every 2 years as the system is designed to slowly loose gas and if not serviced and the level gets low it switches it self off to prevent damage to the system,
these sections will need to be checked first before disturbing fuses etc, if you do have blown fuses the question is why? just replacing a fuse will not fix the problem,
checking the light and compressor are quick checks if they are not working the actual aircon system will need checking by a garage
Hi that does sound like its kicking in, did the technician do a service as in drain the system do a vacuum check and check for leaks adding a leak dye? usually around £60 and takes about an hour?
checking the pressure isn't checking the system that just tells him that there is some gas in the system, do you know how much he drained out before he serviced it can be anything like 750 grams, it does sound like you have a fan issue then, does the fan cut in to cool the normal radiator down? have you 2 fans or one that just does the normal radiator and aircon?
Some times they have a fan the engine side and one the front bumper side, so if it only has one fan and it cuts in regarding normal engine temperature for the coolant we can safely say the wiring and fuses etc for the fan are ok as it wouldn’t work at all, it is leading more to the control unit not sending signal to the fan I’m afraid, do you have any diagnostic scanners?
Can you hear the relay working? In theory if the light is coming on and the compressor is cutting in that side of the electrical system is working it the part from the ecu/body control module to switch fan on that needs chec*****, *****’t be fooled into thinking the relay is faulty if not working as if it’s not getting a signal it won’t work,
Firstly can you hear it clicking when you turn aircon on and off? also you can check if its getting a live feed and earth,
ok no problem hope you get to the bottom of it, many thanks
See if any faults are stored for the aircon system might be some relating to pressure or signal loss, also if it has a live data feature see what the pressures are running at, this is done with the engine running anf aircon switvched on
no worries many thanks
