    Air Conditioning not working

    Hi,
    My air con has never worked since owning the car.
    When I first brought it I returned it to the garage because someone had taken a bolt out of the compressor (to disable it) becuse it made a rattling noise when it was engaged. They put a new compressor on it but this didn't fix it.
    I never got round to taking it back so now its my problem !!!
    Took it to VX and they said that I had a crack in one of the pipes on the condensor. I replaced it yesterday with a new one and had Kwik Fit regas it today but still not working.
    The AC light comes on and the engine revs dip slightly but the compressor does not engage nor does the fan come on.
    Is there anything I can do to test further as I really don't want to spend any more money on it. (I have done the pedal test and no error codes are coming up and all of the fuses are ok)

    Thanks

    The first step i'd be taking is to check you have 12v at the compressor with the ac switched on and the engine running

    Will try that tomorrow and report back, also going to get a potentiometer to bypass the pressure switch (another thread on AON)

    Just to let you all know its now working, When fitting the new condensor I forgot to plug in the pressure switch. Kwik fit could not get it to work so did not charge me for the re-gas!!!
    Plugged the sensor back in and now ice cold.

    Cheers for all your help
