    Hello!
    finished work early so decided to have a look at my mums car!
    She has a 51 plate golf TDI the air con compressor isn't kicking in with the AC button even though it is lighting up (non climatronic control). I did a scan with vag-com to see if anything came up but it shpwed nothing. I have checked the voltage to the compressor it is 8.89v both turned on and turned off in the cab. I checked all the fuses in the box next to the steering column, does anyone know where to loook next?

    i now know the pump works. if i feed 12v to the compressor i can hear the clutch dropping in. Could the system need re gassing as i think there is a sensor stopping it working if the pressure is too low isnt there?

    It was gassed about 6 months back i think but she says she hasn't used it since :s

    Just wondered if youd had any luck with your ac? Im currently having problems with my compressor dropping in and out?? Dont suppose youd know whether vag-com would pick up why this is happening?

    Thanks for the reply, i've got a guy coming to check my car over and vag-com it for a sum of £30, my fault is intermittent so hopefully it will play along or atleast log it and he will be able to find it! Fingers crossed eh!

    i've checked the aircon system and it's low on gas so i'll get a regas kit and see what happens.
    They have a low pressure cutout so if there is no gas in there it won't work :)
