Air con doesen't work on long journeys or traffic?
Forgive me if this has been asked many times before, but I've had a search for it through the forum and didn't find anything that was quite like mine, because most people had NOT had their gass recharged and so they had the same sort of problems.
I recently got my Air con serviced and recharged and was told that my compressor was ''on its way out'' but it should still work ok for now so rather than footing myself a £600+ bill for a new one I thought i'd let the existing one run till its dead. . .
Now the problem i have is that when im in traffic, (slow crawl) or stationary, the air con does NOT work and only the blower is on. But as soon as i start moving above 15mph, the air con will turn on. Also if I'm on a long journey, the air con will work for around 45 minutes before the ECON light will turn on and stay on. The air con will then stop working, and nothing comes out of the air vents except maybe a tiny amount of normal air.
So is it really the compressor on the way out, or is it something else?
Thanks for any replies given.
