    Air con normally causes this... end up with a damp patch under the car... its normal (assuming this is the issue)

    If it was a coolant leak it should be pink (Assuming you have G12 as coolant)

    If econ is 'on' (red led indicator is lit) then air con is 'off'... is this what you mean?

    Press the econ button... if the switch's LED lights up then aircon is off... if its not lit up then aircon is on... please note this only swtich's the aircon compressor off/on... you can use Auto in ECON mode which means you have climate control but its not using the 'aircon' system to provide the cool air...
