    If the plug to the comp doesnt have a current even when the button is pressed then it has nothing to do with the gas. I'm assuming he checked the current with a multimeter on the plug itself and not just assumed it has no current because the comp doesnt engage.

    As autosparks said, if its low on gas pressure, it will not engage the compressor. Take it to kwik fit for a recharge. if its not colder then they dont charge.

    ^^^ Thank you mate

    If there's low gas pressure the system will shut down and the compressor won't have any power to it
