Default XJL 2013 AC not cooling while car is idle

Someone told me that the AC compressor needs to be changed and another person said that it is an electrical fault. Looking forward to your feedback.

What checks have you had done ? Normally, an air con technician will check the refrigerant quantity in the system. This is done by evacuating and then weighing it. I suspect you're down on the amount required. The climate control system on these cars normally gives very little trouble, but some people turn off the air con part of it to "save money" and then end up with a duff compressor costing hundreds of pounds/dollars to replace. Some saving !!

Take a look at this post as I had the same issue and replacing the valve that I had was the problem. My AC now cools at idle. https://www.jaguarforums.com/forum/x...ciated-206120/

Bader did you find the issue? Sounds to me like the fans are giving out. If you can make it happen at home in your driveway put a fan in front of your grill and see what happens. Good luck.

Mine is a 2013 with 63k km on the clock. Had to change the compressor. Such a let down for a relatively new car.
