Hi i have a 2008 1.4 Vti and the Air con has stopped working.

I can't hear in click on so don't think it is getting power and the pipe isn't getting cold either.

Checked in the manual and the fuse for it is also for other items which are still working so don't think it is that.

What is the next things to check? read something about a relay switch but not sure where this is..

Thanks

It will have to be connected up to a AC machine,It could be just low of gas?when was the last time it was re-gassed?.Might as well book it in for a re-gas as the only way to check it properly is with it fully pressurized.Make sure the AC guys use UV dye with the gas to identify a possible leak.

Hi, Not sure when it was last regassed but not in the last year. I am going to try and test the switch first then if i dont get anywhere will try a regas. Forgot to say it stopped working a couple of weeks ago and i had thermostat fault codes etc. i replaced the coolant sensor and all codes have gone and the air con worked ice cold again. But has now stopped, which is why my instinct is that it is not a leak but something else.

Does the light on the switch turn on when you press it ?

If it does then the system is trying to turn on the AC so you can rule out a faulty switch. Remember, the switch is just an input to the BSI which does the actual switching on. As previously mentioned, low pressure will stop the AC turning on. It could also be the AC clutch is faulty or a wiring fault / bad connection on the plug that goes into the clutch.

Ok so tested what I think is the compressor solenoid (black/yellow casing located under the compressor) and it is not receiving power. Could this still be due to no pressure or is it more likely to be an electrical fault?
