    Default Signum aircon compressor not engaging

    Hi all. I've just bought a 2.0 dti and the a/c isn't working. I've had somebody check it out - it doesn't need a regas, the pump is not engaging. All the fuses seem ok (unless I've missed one).

    Before I take it somewhere to get the compressor checked out, I've seen the 'grey relay' being mentioned but i can't see one in the relay box next to the battery.Am I looking in the right place?

    If its not the fuse or the relay might be the clutch that has burnt out.

    cheers paulhb. Found it - thought it may be missing causing the problem. Will need to get somebody to look at it.

    If anyone can recommend a good a/c specialist in Surrey area, it'd be appreciated.

    Have you looked at it from above? to see if it engages you will see if it does in that the clutch will be stationary, do you have ECC? if so is it selected on via the dispaly.

    hi again - I cant see anything from above. the guy who came to do the regas told me it wasn't engaging so now I'm just trying to rule out the simple/obvious answers before booking it in somewhere.
