Sorry about the newbie question,
but I am trying to do an investigation as to why the Air con compressor is not kicking in, all and controls fans work as expected including auto I have checked the system as far as I can and its holding gas and shows as filled on a 'halfords' gauge
I can see the control wire for the compressor and testing shows no volts I am also amused by the earth wire being an inch long and attached to the comp casing.
Lower down there is another earth blade but I believe this has never been connected.
Is this to be expected on a 2000 Phase II 3.0 v6.
I have tried to find the pressure sensor, so I can override to test the compressor but my car has climate control so I am struggling a bit.
Any ideas on a quick compressor test, and how much juice the switch/clutch cable needs ??
Or even more diagnostics, I am pretty able just new to Alfa's
Please be gentle, I have checked and cleaned the relays, checked fuses and done a Air Con reset, per old threads and no improvement.
And will try a ecu reset next.
