Ac not working

Ho guys ,

Just got used cars with a/c. System St. The moment is complete off.

Anyway if I press the a/c button should i ear the sound of Te switching box trying to activate the compressor or it's right in this way ?

You should hear a click as the compressor clutch engages. The aircon on these cars is not reliable....first get it recharged and see if it starts working, and if so for how long. Then take it from there.
Or move to the UK where aircon is rarely needed! Used mine about three times last year.

As zebraman says - you will hear it if it is working. Get it refilled as a start.

Also join SELOC | Lotus Enthusiasts Club - the UK version of LT as there is more technical advice avaialbe there on the K engined Elises.

The fan (blower) speed must be in position 1, 2 or 3 before the compressor will engage. You will also see the blue light in the center of the AC button.
