Air con issues - not relay!
So previously my air con went about a year ago and i swapped to the updated part number relay and it all started working again.
So now today it started working as I was leaving home (luckily as it was 25C) and then after driving 5 minutes I accelerated, I guess that meant the A/C compressor clutch disengaged and it never engaged back on!
First thing I did when I got home, pulled the relay and checked it. Found it was working perfectly with continuity on the multimeter. So from there I checked the two fuses for the A/C system, also checked out as totally fine. So I ran the engine and closely looked, the clutch is definitely not engaging but the A/C fans are coming on no problem. Decided to check for any error codes on my bluetooth ODB reader, that showed nothing too.
Whats the best thing to check now? I looked at the pressure sensor but didn't expect to see 3 wires so wasn't sure what to do there. Annoyingly I have the Type R so space is minimal around the engine.
