2009 Peugeot 308 1.6vti air con

Post by alanty »

The air con is not working on my recently purchased Peugeot 2009 308 1.6vti
i have had the system regassed and it still not working, one thing i have noticed is that the compressor centre bolt is not rotating. Has anyone any suggestions as to the cause

Can anyone supply a diagram of the air con system including wiring and colour codes and location of the air con relay this would be appreciated

Thank you
Alanty

I presume that your car has a non-turbo Prince engine. The A/C compressor is computer controlled, and will not engage if certain engine or cooling system faults are present, even those that are not reported to the driver. I recently had a similar issue with our 308 CC (Prince 155 turbo engine) which turned out to be a faulty heater element in the thermostat housing (apparently a common failure).

You really need to get the fault codes read to find out what is causing the compressor to be locked out. If it is the thermostat housing, there are probably aftermarket parts available a lot cheaper than the genuine items, or there is a workaround that seems to work.
