    Check with Vcds to be sure but more then likely system has no refrigerant or the air-con pressure switch near front radiator could be playing up. After that you could be looking at wiring or compressor problems

    Yeah, it should come up with a G65 sensor fault if it's the high-pressure switch. Could just be that there's no refrigerant in it, have you tried getting it re-gassed?

    When you fit a new control panel you have to code it to the car with VCDS mate, but if it was doing it before there must be an issue somewhere else.

    Thats a bit mad,why would it need setting through vcds?
    It defo needs re-gassing as it's not even cold when on.
    When we scanned it jim,it didn't show anything did it?

    They're coded to the vin number of each car, so it has to be learned to your car when fitted.

    No mate the only thing that showed up was the radio from memory, oh and that the alarm had been triggered.

    Right! So this could of been the original problem,the set that was in was not coded as they had been replaced by the previous owner.

    That and also the fact your ECON light will stay on if there is no gas. Get it re-gassed first as it will need doing anyway, then that bit is eliminated - may even knock the light off. Then look at coding the HVAC to your car

    Can anyone tell me the connection on the compressor where does the loom go to? Is it wired to a control module? Is there anyway of testing the compressor clutch by hardwiring.it?
