TDI®injection and glow plug system (4-cyl. unit injector)
Testing auxiliary signals
Testing AC compressor signal and AC compressor shut-off

Requirements for test:

  • ● Air conditioner okay
  • ● No faults stored in fault memory
  • ● Vehicle at room temperature
    (above +15 °C)
  • ● Engine at operating temperature.

Testing AC compressor signal

The engine control unit receives the information that the air conditioner will be switched on shortly via the air conditioner ready signal.

 
A01-0139

Test sequence

  • ‒ Read measured value block, Display group 002, engine idling=>Page01-126.

→ Display on VAS 5051:

  • ‒ Check display in display zone -3-.
    • ‒ Specification: 0 X 0

Note:

Display value "X" can be ignored during test procedure.

  • ‒ Switch on air conditioner, press the "Auto" key and select the lowest temperature.
    • ‒ Specification: 1 X 1
  • ‒ Press the ◂ button to exit from the function "08 - Read data block".
  • ‒ Select diagnosis function "06 - End output".
  • ‒ Switch off ignition.

If the specification is not obtained:

  • ‒ Connect test box V.A.G 1598/31 to wiring harness for engine control unit.Do notconnect to the engine control unit itself:
    • ‒ Connecting test box to engine control unit without protective housing=>Page 23-49.
    • ‒ Connecting test box to engine control unit with protective housing=>Page 23-51.
  • ‒ Test for open circuit and short to positive or earth in the following wiring connection:

=> Current flow diagrams, Electrical fault-finding and Fitting locations binder

  • ‒ Rectify any open/short circuit as necessary.

Testing AC compressor shut-off

The engine control unit will shut off the air conditioner compressor in the following cases:

  • ◆ Heavy acceleration from low speeds (control unit detects angle change at accelerator position sender -G79 and receives road speed signal)
  • ◆ In the emergency programme (emergency running mode)
  • ◆ If the coolant temperature rises above 120 °C
  • ◆ For about 6 seconds after every engine start

Test sequence

  • ‒ Switch on air conditioning system.
  • ‒ Select the function "Final control diagnosis" and activate air conditioner compressor shut-off=>Page01-64.
  • ◆ The air conditioning compressor should shut off within 5 seconds (check visually) and then every 5 seconds cut in and shut off again.
  • ‒ Press the ◂button to exit from function "03 - Final control diagnosis".
  • ‒ Select diagnosis function "06 - End output".
  • ‒ Switch off ignition.

If the conditioner compressor is not switched off:

  • ‒ Connect test box V.A.G 1598/31 to wiring harness for engine control unit.Do notconnect to the engine control unit itself:
    • ‒ Connecting test box to engine control unit without protective housing=>Page 23-49.
    • ‒ Connecting test box to engine control unit with protective housing=>Page 23-51.
  • ‒ Test for open circuit and short to positive or earth in the following wiring connection:

Test box
V.A.G 1598/31
Socket

AC operating and
display unit -E87
Contact

=> Current flow diagrams, Electrical fault-finding and Fitting locations binder

  • ‒ Rectify any open/short circuit as necessary.
