Major parts were replaced by previous owner. Compressor not engaging. Fuses good and I replaced the compressor relay. Still not working. Blowing, but not cold. Any ideas? 2001 Cabrio.

Sounds like the refrigerant has leaked out, and the Low Pressure switch is preventing the compressor clutch from engaging and burning the compressor up.

Look for oily areas on the A/C hoses and all the connections. When the refrigerant leaks out, it carries a little bit of oil with it.

Thanks, that’s what I originally thought, however, just got it back and it was the Cooling Fan Control Module Assembly. Everything else was ok.
