The fans are also controlled by the ECU and run at half speed if the compressor is running.

I bridged out the C4 fuse and I could hear the A/C compressor solenoid kick in.
Could this still mean that it is low on gas in the A/C?
I know the switch is ok but the back lights don't work on the heater control panel either. Could this all be linked to the control box under the front wing?
