No, compressor appears not to come on
Porsche Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 5 months ago

if the low pressure is high its not going to come on. you need an ac manifold gauge set to check the high and low pressures.

Ok, used to have but will purchase again and check
Porsche Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 5 months ago

sorry my friend, but we need to know what the static pressures are before doing anything else. You dont want to guess, Im sure.

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
High side pressure 110psi, Low side pressure 110psi as measured on gauges
Porsche Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 5 months ago

whats the outside temp?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
74F
Porsche Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 5 months ago

if thats the pressures with the vehicle shut off then you my friend are overcharged.

Ask Your Own Porsche Question
Porsche Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 5 months ago

those pressures should match the outside air temp

have not added any 134a to the system
Porsche Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 5 months ago

ok, standby then

Ask Your Own Porsche Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
ok
Porsche Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 5 months ago

the only other thing that will cause that is air in the system. I would have the system evacuated and vacuumed down and recharged. If that doesn't resolve the issue then the compressor is probably bad. If you have a voltmeter you can pull the ac clutch relay and jumper across the plug to see if the compressor kicks on.

THe car runs smooth and normal, perhaps the fuel cooler has leaked into the AC system?
Porsche Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 5 months ago

not a common issue at all.
