2004 VW new Beetle A/C won't cool. When turning on compressor it doesn't quite load the engine down any. It was cooling but only sitting still. Once I started driving the air got warmer and


speed up engine with air on and see if compressor turns off. if it does then it is low pressure. if it has electric radiator fans they should be on when the ac is on. if they dont work then it will make the pressure higher

make sure low side pressure drops other wise the valves in the compressor are shot, meaning a new compressor is in your future.....

1999 vw beetle, a/c suddenly stopped working, fan blows and light comes on, but compressor doesn't


Have the aircon gas checked. If there is a leak in the system the pressure will be to low and the compressor won,t kick in. Re-gas aircon and check for leaks.

Ac is not working i think is a relay because the ac cluch wont star


If you have cooling fans, then it could be your compressor itself. If you hit the A/C button, and there's no cooling fans, try a new "Cooling Fan Control Module" it's a common problem on early 2000 VW's.

A/c issue


Could be a couple things - one, if the fan switch for the AC condenser is not working, it'll keep the AC from kicking on, but that's usually seen by the compressor not coming on. When you activate the AC, do your RPM drop down at all? It should. If it does, the compressor is kicking on and you probably have a problem with the expansion valve, which is what flash chills the air. The car is pumping freon around but it's not cooling enough to cool the car. That's likely an expansion valve problem.

If you turn it on and the revs don't dip down momentarily, the compressor isn't coming on, and it could be the fan switch underhood or the AC relay.

Electrical problems with trunk gas door and ac


the first problem with you fuel door is most likely the rear actuating motor or cable. remove the right rear trunk lining, and loosen the 2 silver phillips head screws, and remove the actuating motor. i would suggest replacing both the motor and the cable, as both of these parts have superceeded to a new improved part. the AC problem is caused by a faulty fan control unit. this part not only receives the switch signal and processes the information to control the compressor, but also controls the fans, their speed, the compressor,and the hi/lo pressure switch. both of these parts a a common problem for the beetle.
