2011 Vw Jetta 2.5 se
My AC is out..How can I tell if the clutch is engaging other than just looking at it? Is there a fuse? Since my car has been sitting in the garage for the past few days when I went to start it the car dies when I put it in reverse now...what does that mean?

Hello my name is***** am an ASE Master Technician and I am glad to help you out with your question.

Expert:  Dan replied 3 months ago.

Yes there is a fuse for the compressor.

Expert:  Dan replied 3 months ago.

Have you had this scanned for codes? is the engine light on?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Where's is the fuse located? I haven't had it scanned bc it's in the garage and stalls in reverse so I can't back out and go
Expert:  Dan replied 3 months ago.

I do not think these two problems are related. I think you have 2 problems.

Expert:  Dan replied 3 months ago.

You could have a vacuum leak that is causing it to stall, I would check all the hoses carefully for cracks.

Expert:  Dan replied 3 months ago.

You really need a scan tool to diagnose this problem.

In fort worth

Is there a way I can verify that it is the compressor for myself?
Expert:  Dan replied 3 months ago.

I do not know that area, you may have to call around to a shop or two. There is no easy way to check the compressor besides checking fuses and making sure the ac system is fully charged.
