Hi all. I have been reading up on the air conditioning fan being used by the ecu as an emergency overheating control system, as in once the engine temperature gets critical it fires up the fan but not the air conditioning pump. I have been considering deleting the whole air conditioning system but I am now thinking that maybe isn't a good thing if unplugging it causes the emergency feature to be disabled electronically. Put it another way. If I remove all the air conditioning system except the dash matrix and the electric fan but leave the fan plugged in will the absence of the other components from the circuit cause upset and more importantly would it be possible to bridge pins in the loom to retain the emergency signal should it ever be needed?

Why not just keep the fan and wire up to a switch or a basic thermostat?

Otherwise I would assume the only thing you will be removing apart from pipes is going to be the compressor, which only has a feed to it for the magnetic clutch (1 wire only). Therefore it has no switch, meaning the system doesnt know if the thing is responding to the signal given or not. Not sure about if there is any sensors on the pipework tho, measure their resistance and see if you can replicate it with resistors perhaps? thats if there is even any there :laugh:

Removing compressor should have no effect at all therefore (apart from no A/C and about 3 kilos less weight). Just make sure the wire is made safe as it might short out or blow a fuse if its loose. 4PK850 is the belt needed for bypassing it and keeping the power steering ;-)

That was the plan upto reading about the emergency overheating thing. I can see what happens when I just unplug it all.

On the 100F+ days we just put the heater on full to give the cooling system that extra little bit of capacity, it worked.

So what happened?


Dunno. I have been shearing all day?

OOPs, wrong button, I meant "quote"! :ohmy: Not delete!

Edit: This is one of the problems with the "Action" button fonts being so small, its easy to hit the wrong button. My Bad! :(

I don't know what if anything can be done with the button font size, I can mention it to Martin?

After hitting the button, It would be better to have a prompt, like: "Do you wish to delete this Post?" With a "Yes/No" option. An extra step or two. :)

Font resizing button just below the top right SEARCH box. Use at your peril as I cannot guarantee the display will look correct.

Ah, sweet! Better!! I can see!! It's a Miracle!!

I had been using the one in the Browser. But this is more convenient.

Although the better way is to you your browsers native zoom function

(Press the Control Key and then use the mouse scroll wheel)

Martin, the text under the "Action" button (and other Buttons) is still relatively small. The rest is bigger.

Thats because it purely acts on "genuine" fonts, which I why I said the zoom function in the browser is better as it handles a mix of graphics and text
