    Aircon kmv shut off valve

    are there differences in compressor variation numbers, according to real oem mine is 64526917859 but looking about there are 03 04 05 numbers at the end of the part number do these make a difference, the first picture is from a 2004 and the second a 2006

    Aircon kmv shut off valve

    may just buy a secondhand compressor can get 1 from the bay for about £50, if I buy the selonoid for £58 and pay the labour to fit it I may find the compressor still doesn’t work and have to pay again so might be a better option to get a working second one

    Aircon kmv shut off valve

    Well got it regassed no difference still comes up with that fault code it did come up with the pressure sensor code but that went away after deleting the codes but the kmv one came back, wondering if it’s many the control valve in the compressor

    Aircon kmv shut off valve

    Hi, That I don’t know, would like to know what the code refers to first before paying for a regas then having to empty the system if some valve needs change, is there a gauge or some sort of indicator in the system that shows the gas level
  6. I’m stumped with this one can’t find a thing on google carly code 009c7c kmv shutoff valve hope someone knows this aircon code, my aircon isn’t cold and I hear the heater vents adjust when you press the aircon button

    I would do a couple of force regens first to see how that goes then as someone mentioned before look for the reason it’s not regening itself , you could pay someone to clean it but if the existing problem remains you end up in the same situation again

    on Carly if you go into settings and turn on additional obd it will read bit more if you haven't already done so

    Bluetooth fault and others

    Cheers kind of suspected that, I have removed the mulf today and it doesn’t seem to have an affect on anything else it not being there, just trying to work out if the can id2 fault code is related,
  15. Hi folks Got a kmv shut off valve error code 009c7c when I clear it it stays away till the air con button is pressed, the air con doesn’t blow cold and not sure if it’s empty or not is this possibles new compressor time or is the valve repairable
