Default Air con still not working - SOLVED!!!!

Hi

I have 308, 1.6, 2008.

Went to another garage in Bournemouth and they have tried to regass it again (after Halfords), the guy has checked fuses and hoses, no leak whatsoever. They are still saying they can't connect to air conditioning via computer. Would this be electrical fault or perhaps system needs to be remapping?

Can anyone has an idea what this might be, compressor, temp sensor?

They want to charge me 50 to plug it in to Peugeot Plant is that much or should I visit the Peugeot dealer?

Thanks

Your a/c does not have a computer as its simple on/off a/c. Think I've gone through this with you already.

Go to someone who knows exactly what they're at or go to a dealer who does a/c.

Have a look at the Peugeot Planet map and get someone on here to do it for beer money:

Thanks for your replies. I did take it to another garage and they couldn't help me either. They think it is an electrical issue or compressor .

I have sent a few PM but they are saying it would be waste of time as this is air con issue and no faulty codes are present

Spoken to dealer as well and they want to start from 69.99 and check if there are any leaks, etc.

Do a Google search for Air con specialists, then ring round and get different prices that's what I had to do after Kwik Fit said I had a leak. First call was 70+ to investigate the leak, 2nd call was 30 so I travelled to them and he found no leak used the dye and everything in the end he regassed the system and its been fine so far and that was over 3 weeks ago. But as Davidireland says its just a very simple system comprising of compressor, condensor ( radiator) pipes and that's about it oh and an on/off switch Hope you get it sorted I can recomend the company I used but they are in St Helens don't know if that helps in any way?

Thanks for all your replies

I have just been advised that the fuse box in the engine bay needs replacement, hence that's the whole reason that my air con doesn't work.

Does anyone know where I can get one cheaper? Part number is 9664706280, Peugeot 308, 1.6, EP6

Who advised this and under what evidence?

There are usually some dummy sockets in the fuse box. Unless there was catastrophic damage in there it would make sense to use one of those.

I went today to the local electrician who has the peugeot planet and some other software for peugeot air con.

He has said that the a/c button is fine and there is an electron flow between button and fuse box but then there is not enough electron from the fuse box to engage the compressor (not enough voltage to engage this as far as I understood). He has checked all the fuses and they are fine. Inside the box there are some white cubes (under the platic cover but you can see them)and he thinks one of them is faulty.

I was surprised as fuse box is not damaged at all but he is conviced that the problem sits there as compressor is not engaging and he has also showed me a compressor fault to support his theory.

You know I have already been to the two local garages who claimed to be air con specialists and they couldn't help me so he is actually the only one giving me some idea how to solve this issue.

I've noticed a fuse box is quite expensive so I hope he is right

I hope all the above make sense.

Let me know what you think.

I think the guy is trying to rip you off, You could simply run some wire through a fuse and relay controled by the existing switch or even a seperate switch. directly to the clutch on the aircon pump. If the aircon works then the fault has been repaired. If it doesn't work then it's either a faulty clutch, compressor or a fault in the pipes.

I wouldn't have the fusebox replaced simply for the aircon if everything else works fine, I'd rig up my own switching circuit as above for a couple of quid and a couple of hours of my time.
