The A/c isn't working on my Golf, 2.0L BKD engine if that helps with info.

 

There's 1 fault code in the a/c hvap module which comes straight back when I attempt to clear it:

00229 - Refrigerant Pressure

          002 - Lower Limit Exceeded

 

 

I have screen shots of the measuring blocks if needed too.

The "Compressor Shut-Off code" in the measuring block is "3.0". Where do I find the fault / reason that this no. 3.0 translates to?

 

 

Is the above fault code simply saying that the A/c can't switch on because the gas pressure is too low and it's possible it just needs a leak test + refill / top up? Or is it more complicated than this?

 

Cheers in advance :)

Refrigerant pressure: 0.00 bar.  It's empty.  Find the leak, refill.
