    Default Aircon problems

    Hello

    Put my aircon on earlier and its not gettin cold at all possibly even slightly warmer with it on. Can't remember the last time i used it the light comes on but nothin.
    Is there a fan or somthing which should cut in when you switch it on because i can't hear anything?

    Any help or suggestions would be great

    Its an 07 sri hatch 1.8vvt

    Thanx

    Does your car have ECO mode? I have the Climate Control and when I bought the car it was in ECO mode which turns off the aircon to save fuel.

    Needs to be used regularly (even through winter) to prevent the rubber seals from drying out and the refrigerant escaping.

    Not generally, no. If you've got a Kwik Fit local to you, take it along and they'll hook it up to their automatic machine which will test for major leaks, and if none are found will replenish the refrigerant and oil to the correct quantity and charge you something like £30 (or less). If the find a leak they won't charge you a penny.

    Another thought, as your car is an 07, is it under 3 yrs old, and done less than 60,000 miles?

    If so, and the AC has a leak, then maybe the remainder of the manufacturers warranty will pay for the repairs.

    As said it's good to use the air con for at least 15mins a month even in winter. Regas should sort it though
