The dash conversion has gone pretty well up to now. All the vacumn and fan speed gizmo's work a treat. Will post pictures and other bits a bit later!

Only problem is the A/C Off button and auto button have no effect on the compressor, it just stays in the off position.

Any idea's about what to check?

Thanks

Hey Mate,

Did A/C work before you started playing? If there is insufficient gas in the A/C system, the clutch wont enable as there is a A/C Pressure switch inline with the A/C demand switch (from your new Climate Control)

Check for 12V on pin 10 @ the ECU, with the A/C switched on- this is the trigger to engage the A/C clutch

Yeah the A/C worked before.

Decided to 'decomission' the A/C and do a heater box recon whilst I had the dash out. ie change the heater core and clean the whole box and dice out! and it made the climate control change that much easier without having to convert my heater box.

Didn't realise the suystem would recognise low pressure! Hopefully that will be the problem and it will be fixed with a re-gas!

Thanks, and will ask again if it does not fix it!

In the process thereof.

Seems to be going pretty well!
