A/C will not take any more refrigerant - cannot fill to spec
01 CL600. Car bought in winter. AC never worked. Just getting around to fixing it now because it wasn't necessary before.
Vacuumed out all old refrigerant, tried to put in some new R134. It took a can and a half, but not enough to spec. I put it in the low side. Now it's stuck at 6-7 bar of pressure, and if I try to put any more in it just won't take it. When I touch the hoses I don't feel any flow through the low or high. I can see the shaft turning on the compressor. No, the "EC" button is not on, though after a while it will be forced on and will throw the code "refrigerant low". Low side has same pressure as high side.
Is my compressor bad?
