Have had my new car regassed by ATS whom did not charge me as the system didn't work afterwards.
I've done some reading up but have failed to find images of what I am actually looking for.
The system was pressure tested and no leaks have been found, when pressing the button to turn on the A/C, the compressor does not kick in, neither does the cooling fan.
I have read mention of a low pressure switch which if you "short" or bypass, will engage the clutch and the fan. Can anyone explain me in simpleton terms (assuming that I know the dangers of electricity and how to work safely with it) where the connectors are for this so that I can at least test it? I'm not sure what my next step would be, but I am quietly hoping I will do this, the new gas and oil will circulate around the A/C system and work properly thereafter, but I'm not going to get my hopes up!
I have checked the A/C fuse in the central fuse box and diode in the auxiliary fuse box and both appear to be OK, but any tests which are more in depth are welcomed!
I know where to locate the low pressure point as I was looking at it earlier this morning (drivers side wheel arch.)
I know that the cooling fan does work as I heard it earlier after a spirited drive when I got back to the house.
Any advice is appreciated.
