    Hi guys,

    VE SSV 2007 ute, worked perfectly last time I drove it, now when I press the AC button nothing happens and it keeps saying AC OFF on the main display.

    Can't hear the compressor clicking on, and air is obviously hot. No error codes at start up, any ideas?

    I did wipe the dash down with cleaner the other day maybe there's a sensor or button I knocked? Everything else is fine, belts are new (I get the abs off error once in a blue moon tho). I tried resetting by holding the window button for ten sec and it did do something, resetting all vents or something but zircon still stays off.

    Thanks

    Had the same thing happen to me driving on a dam hot day
    After enduring the hot and windy(windows down) drive home I pulled the fuse,checked it and it was ok
    I put fuse back in and hey presto It's working
    So I really don't know what the,but it's all working since.
    I say if it aint broke then don't fix.

    Where abouts is the fuse? I thought if the screen and all functions were working then that indicated the fuse is ok...that said, I could not locate an "ac" fuse... there are diagrams online but I'm not sure which one to pull.

    Thanks

    Just regassing? If it needed regassing it has a leak which they should have repaired.
