Question about Volkswagen New Beetle
My a/c stopped working after about 30-45 min of the engine being shut-off.
I drove the car all day long and then shut it off for about 30-45 min and when I came back to start it, the car's a/c was not wotking, just blowing hot, outside, air. Now, I have check the a/c plug, by the a/c compressor, and it was broken, problem one. Then, I have checked the voltage for the feed plug to the a/c and it was about 4-4.8 volts, steady. Checked compressor for resistance, there was none, multi-meter read 0 ohms. The system was full and functional. Next, it was raining that day and I'm thinking that the water could have shortened the curtcuit, somewhere, I do n ot know what the voltage is sopose to be at the a/c or where the relays are, for the a/c. I have emptyed the a/c system and vacuumed it again,to make sure that it held vacuum and it did.
ANY SOLUTIONS ANYONE???
The resistance should have a reading in the compressor drive clutch
if it has a 0 reading it has failed
no compressor drive =no cooling

your condensor fins could be blocked by leaves or other debris on the outside. this component is located right behind the radiator. there could also be an overcharge or under charge in the system. make sure that when you charged the system that you used a good set of gauges to check the system pressures. Also check and make sure that there is not a blockage somewhere in the lines, Usually if there is there is a fine layer of ice surrounding it.

SOURCE: oil pressure sender ohms -
Most guys do not actually test the sender, as it is somewhat hard to do, as you must know the pressure to evaluate what reading you get.
IF you suspect you have incorrect oil pressure, test the pressure by using an external pressure gauge. If pressure is okay, just change the sender.
If the pressure is NOT okay, shed tears and commence surgery to find cause.
