  • Air con/climate control not working - Compressor issue?

    Could be an electrical issue any where in the wiring. Not necessarily in the compressor itself. Circuit being the operative word.

    The tests you have done seem to verify that the compressor clutch works when 12v is applied directly.



    Also, the error code refers to a control valve. The control valve may be located somewhere else in the plumbing. If it is not working, it will probably also lock out the supply to the compressor clutch.

    This would be by design, to prevent the compressor from pumping refrigerant against a closed valve and damaging the compressor, plumbing or condensor.

    Glad it's fixed.

    Is there anything about the location of the break that would suggest a potential future problem for others? E.g., was the harness under strain, or fretting against the bodywork or part of the engine?
