If it can, I cant find it. On the BSI and engine ECU status pages all I get is "Air conditioning operation:- inhibited" but no reason why. I have looked in the "standard" parameters page but there is nothing there. I have not tried to "personalize" a status page, it might be one of the parametric options. I'll have another look.
I have used the engine ECU actuator test feature to run the fan so that's OK but if you have any other ideas, I'm all ears.
The engine ECU logs some "temporary faults" (no permanent faults) now and again but I don't think they would effect the A/C? Faults like O2 sensor and MAP sensor.
I have a set of A/C manifold gauges but they are not at my house ATM. I can get them in a few days.
I am sure when I got the car off the tow truck, I tested the A/C and it worked. So I'm sure none of the ancillary components are faulty. But it has been sitting idle for more than a year and it's quite possible the gas has leaked out in the mean time, for some reason. As the system has not been running, no oil has been circulating and consequently no oil has come out with the gas (theoretically). I cant find any cracks or holes in the lines but it could be one of the orings.
Until I crack the schrader valves I wont know for sure if there is ang gas in the system. It would be nice if I could find some thing in LEXIA as to why it wont run but that would be helpful...and we cant have that now can we.
