Question about 2005 Skoda Fabia 1.4
After regassing and replacing the engine temp sensor and clearing fault code PO118 (eng coolant temp sensor) ALL FUSES CHECKED, THE ENGINE WAS WARMED UP AND AC SWITCHED ON. AC STILL DID NOT WORK. wITH ENGINE AT 2000 RPM I TAPPED THE COMPRESSOR SOLENOID SWITCH WITH A HAMMER AND PUNCH. THE REVS DROPPED TO 1800 RPM AND AC STARTED WORKING. SOLUTION - DONT USE YOUR HEAD USE A HAMMER ! tHE SOLENOID SWITCH ON COMPRESSOR WAS JAMMED AFTER LONG NON USE. ALL OK NOW YAAAAA. CHECK THIS METHOD FIRST BEFORE YOU SHELL OUT ON EXPENSIVE AC PRESSURE SWITCH AND VARIABLE DISPLACEMENT SOLENOID ON COMPRESSOIR. ADRIAN TREBICKI 28/04/2013

Does the battery light work? Do you trust this meter? If this is like most newer cars then the Alternators output voltage is computer controlled, you need the dealer to diagnose the issue and replace the computer is needed, it is a very expensive part so don't just throw one in there.

I am suspecting an air problem in the fuel system. Check that all fittings and filters are tight as if fuel drains back over night the when you try staring in the morning the air in the system will not let it start.. Bleed out any air from any bleed screws.

Testimonial: "bleeded out fuel from diesel gauge still the same problem."
