  4. AC Condenser Top Hose Quick Access

    Hi Tom sorry to hear about your problems mate. When I refill an ac system mate first thing I do is test the ac compressor with compressed air. (This test makes sure the clutch. pressure switch etc are ok) Next I pull a vacuum close all Manifold gauge values for at least 30 minutes. If the system holds vacuum ok I continue to evacuate the system for at least 30 minutes. If it doesn't hold vacuum then I'll change the system with compressed air again and use some soapy water to find the leak. As for filling the focus takes 530g and takes about 1min to fill. Yours sincerely Steve Evans
  5. Ac control panel ac button problem

    Well decided to break out the launch. Jumped in to the powertrain control module. Pressure sensor reading and Manifold gauges are the same. No ac request being sent from the powertrain control module to the ac cluch. So I'm left with the heater control panel or wiring problem. As I mentioned in a previous post pushed the button and bingo ice cold ac. OK great job done turn engine off quick cup of tea start the car then tried the ac again didn't work. Hummmmmmmmmmmm Thanks again Peter Steve

  10. Ac control panel ac button problem

    Thanks Peter it' manual ac. The car completes a KOEO self test cluch engagees fans run etc with no codes. So I'm thinking the only thing I can see whats wrong is the switch issue. Spoke to someone in ford and was told there is common problem with the wiring harness at the back of the control panel. I need to know what voltage I need to see on the pressure switch etc. So the search goes on!! Thanks again for all your help mate much appreciated Steve
  11. Ac control panel ac button problem

    Thanks Peter yes it was evacuated for 30 minutes mate. When I connect up the scanner and pull up some live data of the ac button it shows off even if the light on the button is on. When you press the button and hold it shows on the scan tool And stays on. The pressure switch is in the back of the compressor and three wire but this was changed with the compressor. Any more information peter will be great Thanks Steve
  12. Ac control panel ac button problem

    Anyone else heard of this before guys???
  13. Hello everyone decided to gas up the ac on my focus after changing the compressor which kept blowing the fuse. Replaced compressor no more fuse blowing. Great hooked up my Manifold gauges scale etc. Start to fill the system Clutch spinning but not compressing!!!! Hummmmm ac switch lights up great Right time to break out the launch then live data. Brought up the pid for the ac switch Press the button live data shows on then goes straight to off. If you hold the button down the compressor runs and data displays on. Do you think this points to a switch problem?? Can I change the switch?? Any special way to fill the ac system on the 1.0 ecoboost?? Yours sincerely Steve Evans
  14. 1.0 ecoboost ac cluch not engaging

    Well found an hour today for my latest project!!! And it does indeed look like the ac cluch. Used my vantage pro removed the plug for the ac clutch hooked up to power and earth at the ac cluch plug then with my autel then performed a KOEO self test which turns the fan on engage the ac clutch and I get battery voltage when the fan runs as it should. So I jumped the clutch and it looks like it's sized. Removed the 8mm bolt pulled the front off give it a bit of a clean and it's starting to move. Going to remove the clutch tomorrow to see what's going on. Steve
