Climate control problem

Hi All

Has anyone had any experience with climate control probs. Apparently the clutch on my compressor isn't engaging. Will need to check that all the connections etc are good but if anyone has had any experience on this subject it would be much appreciated. Gas level is fine. Was checked by aircon company who come into my work.

Re: Climate control problem

If the clutch is not engaging, how did they check the gas level??? Gas level can only really be checked properly with compressor running therefore clutch needed to be engaged. Have you checked relevant fuse?

There are quite a few different sensors involved with climate control, various pressure sensors, temp sensors etc etc, usually best left to experts.

Re: Climate control problem

Clutch will not engage if there is too little or too much preassure. What did this AC company do? As already mentioned, they could not possibly check gas without compresser being engaged. I'd go back to them and find out what they've done.
