DS5 Fuses- specifically, air con?

Post by TVR_Jon »

Hi, just joined up, having found this forum very useful when trying to sort various issues on my previous car, A C5 Tourer. Anyway....

I now have 2014 DS5 and the aircon is not cooling at all. It looks to me like the compressor clutch is not engaging. I presume there might be a fuse involved, but the manual lists only the function of a few fuses, far fewer that there are physically present in either fusebox. My Google skills have failed me and I cannot find a complete list. Surely all the other fuses are not just there for decoration?

So, does anyone know if a complete list exists or, at least, is there a fuse associated with the air con compressor clutch in there somewhere?

Thanks in advance

Jon

It's more likely to be low refrigerant. When the gas gets low, the A/C compressor is deactivated to prevent damage, which is why it won't be running. I suggest you have it serviced and leak tested by an auto A/C specialist, who will be able to pressure test with a dye and search for leaks before refilling with the correct gas and oil where appropriate.

Thanks Marc,

luckily there is a garage next door, so I will have them take a look at it. My more general question stands, though.... Are the fuses listed in the user manual the only "live" fuses in the 2 fuse boards, under dash, and under bonnet, or do the other fuses all have functions too, and does a list of all these exist?
