i changed the valve on my compressor today and the ac still doesn't work. fans don't kick on either. my buddys shop had a snapon scanner that does alot. we ran a test on the fans and the main fan kicked on with the test. small one didn't. low pressure was high and high pressure was low. there is power at the valve on the compresser, fan module too. any ideas.

I would use a VCDS to check the codes and information on the compressor.

This thread may help, it IS for Mk V and later cars.

You might be able to find one locally to borrow.
Search for VCDS share or VAG-COM share database on line.

Checked into that with no luck. Trying to order one today. Money is very very tight so guna have to do one thing an be behijd on another. Does get annoying being told the same thing all the time on Facebook. Hell even had someone tell me they only let their friends use the vcds

I have loaned mine out to strangers, locally, and mailed it to others, but usually I have known them (even just on the site) for a while.
There is a learning curve for using VCDS, as well.

But with Dodge, Chevy, and Toyota, no comparable tool is available at all in the less than $500 range (at least that has been my experience.)

Just ordered one from idparts. 5%off doesn't work with rosstech. idparts said they can't sell it for less than what rosstech say is why no 5%off. but i did get the $4.95 3 day shipping which makes up for it... i got alot to learn when i get it. lots of what does this code mean type things....also just stumbed across someone on my facebook group that is from michigan and comes down where i am on weekends...things are kinda working out......
