I don't have the tools to check the static charge. Two years ago when the system did lose Freon it just slowly lost its effectiveness. This time it just stopped working immediately. It's possible that something ruptured and lost the charge, but I just don't think it's likely.
I would like to jump out the MAS to check the compressor coil. Can you tell me which pins on the plug to jump?
Would someone be willing to send a diagram if the CD includes it? My manual does not cover A/C for some reason...
Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
