156 aircon questions
I have spent several days searching the forum for answers to my aircon problem and have tried several things that I've learnt, but no success.
I have a 2002 156 selespeed sw. Aircon regassed and was cool for a while, but now air comes out ambient temp.
The compressor doesn't engage when the a/c is switched on, however I can bridge the relay pins and force it on (after trying to locate the incorrectly positioned relay!), but still no cool air comes out.
The stepper motor is fine, I think, as the spindle rotates and the air can be made hot, but never properly cold.
If the compressor spins and the air is still not cold, does that mean another regas is needed, as there might be a leak?
Also, If the compressor works when hardwired, but not with the relay in place, which does work on the fuel pump slots, is that likely to be the pressure switch, or could also be a symptom of being low on gas.
Kwik Fit claim the system is still full of gas, but...well...you know...
Any help gratefully receivd.
