    if its not been used in a long time then the gas could have gotten low and so the low pressure switch will stop it from being activated.

    I'd still expect the light to come on the AC panel when the button is pressed

    Do all the other buttons work fine on the panel?

    Could be panel light faulty. To check unit working at tick over press a/c button should see revs drop a little to show pump pulling power off engine.

    right, push the button . no light, no drop in revs, no clicky, nothing.

    checked the fuses (front and back fuse boards) all seem ok. i presume one of the relays also relates to the air con but i cant find out which one ???

    when mine did something similar it turned out to be low/out of gas AND the CIM had lost its programming to say it had A/C for some reason.

    £100 later and it was fixed (via VX)
