Charge a/c system , it works for 5-10 minutes and stops

Hi, if the system is fully charged most likely you have a bad evaporator temperature sensor. I need you to turn the key on and read out the actual values in the system through the climate control panel. Write them down and post them here and I'll tell you the next step.

Read Out Actual Values In Climate Control

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

it say the evaporator temperature sensor is = 62

Expert:  Marty replied 2 years ago.

That's fine but I need all of the other values. What are you showing for #7, refrigerant pressure?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.


Expert:  Marty replied 2 years ago.
That's not enough pressure. You should read about 7 bar with the key on/ engine off. I'd add a little more refrigerant. You are probably about a pound low.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

we add 2,2 pounds, is the system is going pop. so put 3.2 pounds

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

u know what, the air get cool, but a/c compressor does not encage

Expert:  Marty replied 2 years ago.

Do you have a charging station? I don't want you to overfill it but 4 bar is way to low for your refrigerant pressure. I don't think you really have 2.2 lbs in there.
