pearl. a/c compresser wont come on. I've replaced the Compresser, and receiver dryer. Vacuumed the system, added one can of freon, but compresser still won't come on.
JA: Have you checked the Freon level? Have you checked the hoses?
Customer: Freon is low. only have one can. needs two cans to fill, but you cant fill the system without help from the compresser.
JA: What is the model/year of your Mercedes?
Customer: 230r, 500 sl, 2003 model
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: yes, I'm an ase master tech. I dont know if a low freon code is on the climate control
, and wont allow the system to work or if I need a pressure switch or climate control; unit is kaput. Do u know if I can reset this system or do I need a star diagnosis to reset it.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: Initially the unit was low of freon, 60 psi static pressure, at 95 degree ambient temp. I believe the front compressor seal was leaking, so I changed the compressor.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Mercedes Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
