wtf?! My a/c just started doing something similar to this...
1. all switches/ positions and lights work.
2. I hear the "click" of the compressor relay when I push the "snowflake" button.
3. I checked the refrigerant level and it's good too.
4. all I get is cabin temp air. (or hot air in the red zone on the temp dial)
5. My radiator fans come on like they are supposed to as well.
Anyone got any ideas?? I don't have any Lotus dealerships or service centers near me either. So this kinda has to be a DIY thing for me. My car is an '05 as well.
I know you checked it but am thinking you are low on refrigerant.
