I have jumped the pressure switch and it still did not work. I dont remember the pressure but I did check it and it was in that range (90%sure), but again I jumped the low and high pressure and it still did not work.
Okay well if you are sure the system is full then you are going to need to do some testing, see the test steps in the link below, copy and paste the link to your browser to open and view them.https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/104923897/AC%20Aug%2029.pdf
I assume that the pins are label panel/relay, So in your note 1/2 is 1 on the panel and 2 on the relay.
I dont see any voltage at pin#1(label in panel), so where is the thermal cut-out switch?
The switch is up front of the engine compartment, see the link below.https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/104923897/Thermial%20cur%20out%20switch%20AUg%2029.pdf
I assume it can be jumped to confirm is the issue. Can you provide the pins to jump?
If the switch is actually at fault you would jump pins 1 and 4 see the factory wiring diagram in the link below.
Ok, not sure I found the correct thermal switch. I have located two. Neither in the front. On on the right side of the radiator (I think that is the cooling fan switch (3 wire and wire colors match). The other near the firewall on the loop to the heater core, 4-wire but has brown, grey colors.
I dont see the on in the front, unless is buried...
It should be right where is shown in the diagram I sent you.
There is no wiring harness in the front like that picture. I even removed the top radiator support.
Though not sure it the issue, as tracing your wiring diagram the blue/red should be the voltage side and it also come off the pressure switch (pin 1). There is no power on #1 or #2 of the pressure switch. There is only power on the the blk/ylw (#4).
Where is that power feed from?
Here is a pic looking at the hood latch, oil fill and drip stick, taken from the rear looking forward, so that is the back of the radiator.
Ok, I guess I never noticed, but I do see the climatronic display blinking to 1-15sec.. Seems that is error code. I cant seem to enter the diag mode, via the recirculate and econ buttons (holding both for 5 secs)
Found the cut-off, its under the engine in the front.
If the light is flashing then its should be setting a fault code. can you get me the code?
