Default Air con compressor

Hi all, new to the Forum but really need some advise, took the PT for a Regas on Saturday only to be told that the compressor is not running, switch is illuminated and we were sure that the air con blew cold when we bought the car 2 weeks ago, she is a 2.4 2006 PT cruiser convert,the warranty with the car is as good as useless, any ideas what to test first, i believe everything is controlled by the PCM.

Welcome to the forum. If your A/C was working 2 weeks ago, it sounds like you have a leak. I would suggest hooking up a set of gauges and get a pressure reading.

You'd better hope that it's not the evaporator core. The entire dash has to come out and that's an 8 to 10 hour job from start to finish. Very expensive unless you do it yourself.

Aspire to inspire before you expire.
