Had the car a month. No history from seller. No air cond. All other climate features work. Took to dealership for non-related issue. Tech mentioned the compressor ran anytime the car was running (never any cold air), so he unplugged the comp. And suggested the relay could be stuck. Bought a relay and 134A today. Replaced the relay and no change. Compressor ran no matter if the climate control was in ant setting OR system off.
Hooked up the can charge with gage and it was in the overcharged (red) range. Removed refrigerant and pulled system down. Restarted car and the compressor stayed off. Set to A/C and began recharging. Once low pressure cutout was satisfied, the comp came online but still no cold air. Continued charging to the OK (GREEN) range. No cold air. Ran 20 minutes and worked every setting on control head. No cold air and comp. Would not disengage even when system was turned off. Never got any deflection on needle in the recharge hose and suction line never got cool or showed any condensation. System did provide heat when called for and noticed no strange noises or problems with the control head or display. Have spent in repairs what I bought it for and budget's tight. Can't afford dealership to troubleshoot. Thanks for your help,
have the same problem?
