For just over three weeks, the thermometer has barely made it below the 30 ° outside temperature. Our VW Phaeton acknowledged that with a strange heated interior of the lack of air conditioning only with an open window to felt 2 ° was colder. Since the vehicle was purchased last year, the climate was out of service and so far we owed the only of our laziness just to have a fault analysis done. Rather accidentally we were then asked by the manufacturer ANCEL if we want to test their ANCEL VD500 VW OBD2 diagnostic device once. Of course, we agreed immediately and carried out a fault selection with the then also tested Carista Bluetooth OBD2 adapter should not had worked.
The Phaeton is “something special” and even years later VW does not want everyone to have access to the Wolfsburg's on-board electronics. To our delight, the ANCEL VD500 was given full access and showed us with the error code 00229 that the refrigerant pressure is too low. Our subsequent visit to the guys from Special Concepts showed that hardly any refrigerant was present in the air conditioning system and therefore the compressor of the air conditioning was not even started. Short hand, the air conditioner was refilled and placed under negative pressure while the same contrast medium with added. The contrast medium is responsible for the eventual leaks in the system are visible which fortunately has not been confirmed. Air conditioning cools now excellent again and the fault memory can be deleted easily with the VD500. In our case, the error disappeared after filling by itself. Predicate: recommended!
