AC Relay Question
I have read about the AC relay issue and upgrade to a Mitsuba relay but what I wanted to find out (if anyone knows please), Can this cause you AC/Climate Control to blow no cold air even if it looks like the compresser kicks in? Or even cause intermittent Air Con problem wherby no cold air comes through?
About a week ago I had mine re-gased and presure tested - all was fine. Ive only used the AC a couple of times, the first time it was ok and blew nice cold air, the second time it didnt seem to get cold until a bit later on in the journey. I came to use the AC yesterday and now its not blowing any cold air at all. The engine seems to be making all of the right sounds i.e the relay in the fuse box under the bonnet clicks twice (not sure if this is right - should it click once) and I can see the compressor kick in (the wheel spins). All of this happens when I set the AC to the "On" position.
I have an Omron relay currently but was thinking maybe changing this to the Mitsuba upgrade relay would solve my issues with the AC not blowing cold air?
Any advise or assistance would be appriciated.
