I see, thanks.

Let me just say that any money that you paid, or if you have a subscription, that money stays in your account until the answers are rated, (positive) regardless of how fast or how long it may take to get finished. You can FOLLOW UP AT ANYTIME, even after rating.

The radiator fan won't come on with the compressor..

The engine cooling fan (FC) is controlled by the linear pressure sensor (high-pressure and safety valve), located on the drier, via the engine control module (ECM) and via the control module for the engine cooling fan (FC). The engine cooling fan (FC) is also controlled by the engine coolant temperature (ECT).

Normally with a fully charged AC system, when the fan is needed to cool the condenser, it will get turned on by the ECM, thanks
