Air con update

Postby TightFist9 » Fri Jul 17, 2020 8:26 pm

Posted earlier this year about air con problem on our 2006 1.5dci. Last year changed condenser and dryer plus re-gas and finally after several years had working air con. This spring no cold air again, mightily fed up . Worked out compressor not engaging unless external power supply connected to it. Not really wanting to spend anymore money on it have chopped the wires to the compressor, attached 2 new cables, live and neg and ran them with a fuse inline straight off the battery. So far this has worked and we have instant cold air. I have to remember to pull the fuse overnight or flat battery. Next step is to figure out how to wire a switch in to the cab.
It's a bit crude I'll admit but its cost nothing ( sourced cable from broken abs trailer cable) so happy so far.

So do you now just leave the compressor running all the time you want cold air?
Doesn't that over pressurise the system?
