Hi Guys, I know this website is mainly E-Series based and im asking about an AU but im sure someone can help...

It all started yesterday , I noticed the SmartShield light on the dash was very dimly lit up and fading in and out (like a bad connection) as i was driving (it should not be on at all when diving). I then went to turn on the AC and the compressor doesnt engage therefore no A/C.....

Ive checked all fuses and relays and all is fine there.

Its an AUII with 80K - Does anyone think these problems are connected? And most of all What is the problem?!?!!??!!?

THanks for the help guys :D

THanks for the help guys :D my au 1 sometimes has the park brake on dimmly sometimes gets fairly bright but doesnt seem to be doing anything seems worse on wet days also sometimes the central locking plays up only when the light has been on im thinking im getting water in somewhere and its getting on the body control module as for the a/c ive noticed mine kicks in and out even when on full cold ive had it checked and they say its fine but i must admit its not 1/2 as cold as my eb,s i think the electrics might have been a bit of a weak spot in the au,s
