Question about 2003 Volkswagen New Beetle Convertible

1 Answer

Air conditioning not working on my VW New Beetle

The air conditioning suddenly stopped working one day. It was on and working. I shut the car off, came back into the car, turned it on and it wasn't working. I have done some checking under the hood and am not getting power to the pigtail that comes out from the dash. I've checked the fuse box and all fuses look good. Are there any hidden fuses devoted strictly to the AC? Or is there a relay devoted to it? If so, where and how do I get to it???

    The fuse may test good, but under the load of the fan/AC - it may fail.

Yes there is a relay under the hood, usually located in the power distribution box and if that doesnt fix it, try checking the low pressure switch, located on the accumulator or the low pressure line. You can check this by unplugging the two wire pigtail and completing the circut with a paperclip

Air conditioning stopped working suddenly would not respond when switched on


Could be a number of possible issues. A sudden loss of freon, a faulty pressure switch or relay, and so on.
Someone would need to find out if the compressor has power and then proceed from there.

Overheating


There may be air trapped in the cooling system. If no air bleed on the thermostat housing, or right beside it, start engine at cold, remove radiator cap, and let it idle until warmed up and the thermostat opens fully. When at operating temperature, shut off the car, check coolant level, and put the cap back on. See if that removes any trapped air.

you should check if there is gas on the air system, if you say the compressor its engaged all time perhaps you have a gas leak or too much low pressure on the gas system, its recomended that this work is done by a pro, as it involves hazardous gases and delicate procedures.

Ur a/c fan should be under your hood against the fire wall. the wall behind the motor or in the car under the passenger side of the dash. You can knock on it or you can take off the wire and make sure it gets a good connection. If that dont work replace it.
