    Aircon help, warning 100psi...

    I have the above way of checking my aircon and I've come to look today and it's saying I'm in the red warning and at 100psi... What's happened how can I fix this?

    Was the system running?

    Standing pressure of about 4 bar (60 psi) is normal for a charged system.

    with the system running the low side should drop to about 2 bar (30 psi)

    the high side will run at about 250psi in this weather.

    EDIT:
    I don't think MK5s even have a high side, my ZafB doesn't.

    You have climate control, when the aircon is selected the system uses it as and when required, when you deselct air con it comes up eco as the climate control cant use the aircon thus uses less fuel because its off.

    thats whats im confused about, if there is no gas how would putting more psi of gas in the system bring the psi back into the normal range?
