1999 Mercedes Benz E320.
The clutch on the air condition Compressor does not engage.
E C light on the dash stays on and I can not turn it off. The literature states : The air condition compressor will not go on when the E C lite is on. Gages measures 85lbs of refrigerant/pressure in the system.

Hi Earl

eurotec :

I replied to your first question but you must not have seen it. Click here to view my reply.

eurotec :

I can repost it here if you have trouble viewing it.

eurotec :

Hi, when the EC light is on your compressor will not turn on. Most likely there is a fault stored in the system. You can retrieve fault codes and actual values of the sensors through the control panel. I will attach the procedure below. Run through the codes and erase them and see if the compressor will engage.

eurotec :

Let me know if you have any questions.

Customer: I will get back with you after I perform the test that you indicated.
eurotec :

Ok, if you post the fault codes and values I can help you with it if needed.
