AU2 Air Cond HELP Needed

Hi all
My AU2 Air Cond compressor is not being energised(Checked voltage)
The light on the A/C button is coming on, but no volts to the Compressor. I have checked all fuses and relays in fuse panel. Is there another relay hiding somewhere???.
Also, how do I dismantle the radio fascia and associated parts.
Any help would be appreciated

Re: AU2 Air Cond HELP Needed

If you're getting no power to the compressor it is possible the air cond has a leak somewhere, has lost its refrigerant and the pressure switch has opened, preventing the compressor running.

And it doesn't just have to be NO gas - it'll cut out in both excessive high or low pressure conditions. Of course a pressure sensor could be faulty in itself too.
