Customer Question
I'm working on a 2001...
I'm working on a 2001 VW Jetta's air conditioning system the compressor wont kick on. we replaced the relay but we still aren't getting power to the compressor. We have normal battery voltage to I want to say the 85 pin but nothing on the 86 pin and because there isn't power across both it wont close the relay. Any Ideas how to fix it, or do you have a wiring diagram for the A/C system in this car?
