When the aircon gas drops below a certain pressure the aircon's magnetic clutch won't engage.
It protects the pump from burning out due to lack of lubrication from the PAG oil in the gas.

Mine was unresponsive and the rad fan didn't activate until I had it re gassed, isn't as good at the AC in my dads focus, in fact if it runs out of gas again I won't be re gassing it a second time.

Mine was done on thursday.
It was blowing out like a hairdryer, now it's like a blast chiller.
Lovely.
