Re: RBS light Alarm

I just wanted to say even though it has only been 2 weeks, my car is running fine and normal with the used AC compressor installed.

Re: Why not a RoadPro heater?

I was charged with the duty to report back on the performance of my RoadPro 12v heater. Since Chicago is well into winter I have some things to say about it. Late in the Autumn I used my RoadPro more as test runs to see how it would do. Temps ranged from ranged from 45F to 32F. I tried several diffe...

Re: RBS light Alarm

The repair was completed 4 days ago. I am sure the part has been tossed out. If I wanted to retain the part I would have had to request that well in advance of the repair.

Re: RBS light Alarm

Well I do not specifically know what happened to the AC compressor. The unit was faulting out the system. I did not request the old part given to me. I picked up my car today. Everything seems fine. The AC works fine and all is normal. The total cost was just over $1500. Obviously there is no guaran...

Re: RBS light Alarm

Finally my car has been repaired at the dealership. The faulting AC compressor has been replaced with a used unit. I was called this evening so I will pick the car up Saturday morning. I will report back about the repairs. The total bill for the repair is $1,500, so if it lasts it is a far cry from ...

Re: RBS light Alarm

My car has been sitting at the dealership now for one month. The used AC compressor arrived a couple of weeks ago but I am waiting for the special AC compressor oil to be delivered from Japan. That allegedly is to arrive on Monday (in 3 days). Hopefully the used part will work and solve the problem....

Re: RBS light Alarm

No matter what, my dealer would not disconnect the AC as a solution. They would let me take the car on a flat bed and pay all the diagnostic fees. This would be foolish to do as I am not so sure this is a real solution. Besides I obviously would prefer to have functional AC. The projected cost of th...

Re: RBS light Alarm

Thanks for the feedback. I have suggested to the dealership, the idea of a used AC compressor. They managed to hunt one down. The part is returnable for refund but all the labor at the dealership is not. So there is a big risk. In addition I have to wait 30 days for the special oil for the compresso...

Re: RBS light Alarm

I have little confidence that disconnecting the AC compressor will allow the car to run again with no consequences. I say this because I see only one story online of someone doing this. I am paying for diagnostic fees at the dealership. Were I to not have a repair made, I pay these fees and then I w...

Re: RBS light Alarm

Today I discussed with the dealership, the idea of disconnecting the AC compressor. They stated they cannot do that as it gives them a liability of not doing the proper thing. I was not surprised.
