Hi Dave can't help you with the fuse location...but sure I have read in other posts that it the air con needs re-gassing then it will not work the compressor , may be worth a search and see what pops up as I have never had an issue with air con..

Yes, most common reason for compressor not kicking in is a lack of gas pressure.

This is your air con linear pressure switch and if the pressure it too low or too high then it signals a "no go" for power to the compressor clutch.

Quickest test is to hook up and check your gas pressure. Air con engineer will do this for you in 5 mins
Thanks dave55 thanked for this post
