Air Con failed
Hello all.I have just subscribed to the Quattro list,having recently bought
my wife a 1988 UK spec 200 Turbo, 2 WD automatic.
One immediate problem is a non functioning air con system.The compressor
clutch is not engaging.Is this linked to a pressure switch,so,if the gas
charge is low or non existent,the compressor fails to run? According to the
owners manual,if there is a gas discharge,a warning should show,but I am
seeing nothing like that.
Is there a sequence of tests to help isolate the trouble? I have access to
recharging equipment,and a "sniffer",but I can't get as far as that
Thanks for any pointers.
