    I’d get it checked for pressure and maybe regassed. I’m pretty sure it won’t run if the pressure is too low. They can check for leaks and won’t regas it unless it will keep pressure.
    I did find somewhere in Weatherill park/Smithfield area who regassed mine and did a small amount of diagnosis for less than $100
    I could probably dig put their card if it helps?

    Thanks

    Do you know if you can short the pressure switch to test the electrics?

    No I don't. I swapped the condensor and drier over from one vehicle to mine due to minor accident damage; replaced the seals, and then got them to test and regass the system. Its been fine and icy cold since. Obviously my compressor was fine.

    On my daughter's 206, the problem was eventually (after some expense) found to be simply the on/Off switch on the centre console which would randomly switch itself off. naturally this was mid-summer when a) you needed the aircon and b)when the sunlight was so bright you found it hard to distinguish whether the little green light was on or off.

    Situation solved by replacing the centre console A/C section with one from the wreckers.

    Just a thought

    Thanks all

    Got it checked today looks like the compressor, was low on gas and when tested it cuts in but does not pump so electrics all ok.
    Looks like the compressor is faulty and has a leak.

    Thanks for the replies

    Anyone know the beat place to buy a new one?

    There's a place in Melbourne that does mail order.

    EAI (possibly but don't quote me). I think they are in the box hill area.
    It would be worth ensuring you get the right one by tracking your VIN number against the part number required.

    I actually have one you could have for very little money on the basis that you can fit it, and pay me only if it works.
    I pulled it off a car last july or august and its' been sitting since.
    I didn't drive the donor car long enough to test the aircon but the rest of the parts I changed over worked, and the former owner never mentioned the aircon was US.
