In Topic: HELP AIR CON DRIVING ME NUTS!

glad you got it sorted, you could put some silicone sealent around the outside of the connecter to help keep water ingress out


agghhhhh.......Drove the car to work and AC stopped after five minutes driving. I tested the connector and switch and 12v are getting to the compressor, sprayed wd40 in the socket and left it, when I came back AC worked again although despite switch sending juice the clutch engaged with varying time delay, from instant to two seconds?....I then drove home with AC working for five minutes then it stopped aghhhh...anyone got any ideas, does the compressor clutch stick through wear..?

Is there any switches,sensors elsewhere which might been causing the clutch to cut out?

Hi Mintalking, I just checked the fuse box behind the glove....thx!.....A 7.5 amp had blown and the AC is now fully working. The two pin connector and wire was obviously faulty.

Out of interest for anyone having a similiar problem, when I went to the breakers to get the connector and wire, the first two I looked at had had repairs to the wire, the third was knackered and the last luckily ok. It is obviously a common fault.

THANKS
