Default Zen's ac not functioning...!

This morning while approaching to office, my zens ac did not operate. I pushed the button but it failed to start, only the blower was functioning. Any idea what that could be ? Some fuse ?? or ??

Thx a lot,
Tarun

could be the fuse or could also be that the gas has leaked out.

Could also be the dashboard AC switch itself. Dunno if the Zen's have that problem, but the Uno definitely did.

You need to be a bit more specific. Did the compressor come on at all, but was just not cooling? Then as iceman said, its probably low on gas.

If the compressor did not come on at all, you need to check the fuse first, then check out the switch. Cross your fingers and hope its not your compressor that's broken though!

Thx Rtech, Iceman

Nope. The compressor did not come at all. The car had been serviced just 800 kms back and i specifically asked the Pasco (dealer) guys to functioning of ac.
Till friday it was working and suddenly no life in it at all.
In worst scenario : How much would the compressor cost ??

check gas pressure, and also the compressor fuse.. bypass the pressure switch using a wire to confirm its low gas pressure
dont worry about worst case scenario, chances are very less, still it will cost around 15k max for OE zen compressor
