Title: That time of year air con time
Post by: e4n94 on May 14, 2019, 07:26:24 PM
I purchased my ed30 last august and I never really used the air con until today I went to use it and nothing. The ac button lights up the revs change when turning the ac on and off the fans don't come on.

I checked the codes and had 00898 control circuit ac compressor open circuit
I Then cleared the code check the pump connection all ok and still nothing

Is this a simple Regas or should the fans work

Go to ATS, they will recharge your aircon, if the recharge isn't successful you don't get charged.

If you are going to ATS - get the Groupon offer https://www.groupon.co.uk/deals/ats-euromaster-ltd-20 (https://www.groupon.co.uk/deals/ats-euromaster-ltd-20)
If your budget allows, fork out for the regass and antibacterial treatment (£44.99)
