Light on dash comes on with a press of the button but no compressor turning and no fans running. Took car for re-gas but they have told me it is full of gas. Any ideas? Looks like all fuses in drivers side fuse compartment are all ok.

Is there another fuse to run the compressor?

Thanks for your help.

If you have automatic climate control then befor eyour air con will run the cars cooling systems fan HAS TO RUNNING.
If it doesn't start then you need to check it out. Do a search on this site for cooling fan, it has been on before.

Its just the standard air/con in my Picasso. Not the automatic version.

If the ac men say it's full then you really need to have it looked at by experts at a local ac workshop. It could be any number of things and the system is quite easy to mess up and also contains risks to human if tampered with, sorry.

if there is no click after pressing a/c switch it might be low a134a or if they say its full it might be compressor clutch fault (it normally means replacing the compressor) compressor , used around £50 plus another £100ish for replacing it and regas.
plus the tips from previous posts - fan , and fuse (if i remember correctly its with the other fuses right from the steering column)
