Re: Cooling Fan running high all the time

OK Following up here, when I put gauges on there was some but not much pressure in the system.
Started up, added one can of R134a and system started cycling - AND - the fan switched off of high down to lower speed.
Cycling and cooling fine now, fan seams normal.

I an use Vida to command different speeds of the fan, but when I release control from Vida, it r...

2008 C70 Defrost Actuator fault CCM071

Well Vida would suggest I need to change the defrost actuator.
Step one in vida "REMOVE THE DASH"..................
I may try operating/communicating with Vida some more - who needs defrost now that summer is coming!

Any alternative suggestions on this repair??
