Hi guys,

NF has no cold or hot air blowing.

Fan works and no error codes come up.
So would that be safe to say it's not an electrical issue?

It was filled with gas, blew cold air for a couple of days, but then ran out, so there must be a leak?

What component would you say is failing?

Thanks.

Weird.. hot air is produced by the header radiator.. different system from the air con.
Is it blowing air at all? it might be one of the internal doors in the heater box not switching. (hense my asking about the fan blowing air or just spinning?)

I also had a car once where the fan blade had spun loose on the motor shaft. (another reason I asked if it was blowing air at all.) That one wasn't a falcon though.

Yes, it is blowing some air.
Doesn't sound electrical I'd say?

Is it just blowing all air to the windscreen? If so the controller has lost vacuum.

It's blowing to where ever it's set to.

wen you switch it on can you hear the compressor clutch kick in, if not check your fuses it could be that or could be lack of gas if there is a leak you will see a dusty oil patch were it would be leaking say round a fitting, commpressor condensor

so if the compressor clutch isn't working and there are no leaks, then replace the compressor?

Yes, the clutch does kick in.
