AC system

Recommended Posts

Gents,

1. Regarding 2009 Boxster S AC system, is it engine driven or electrical driven? I mean is the compressor still driven by the engine or is it separate?

2. If you can advice, can I speed while its turned on? Or will it harm the engine with time?

regards

1. The AC compressor is still driven by the engine but it does not have the old compressor clutch (the compressor runs continuously).

From the 2009 Tech Book

The air-conditioning compressor switches off automatically at outside temperatures of below approx. 35° F. (2° C.) and cannot be switched on again – even manually – by pressing the “Auto” button.

The pressure relief valve opens at a critical system pressure of 2030 psi (140 bar) to protect the lines from irreparable damage. The valve closes again when pressure compensation is complete. The valve is located directly on the compressor, on the high-pressure side.

At a coolant temperature of T > 244° F. (118° C.), a forced suppression of the air conditioning system is requested of the air conditioning control unit by the DME system via the CAN bus. For this purpose, the electronic control valve sets the compressor to zero delivery mode (both radiator fans running).

A timed full-load shutdown (compressor function is disabled) occurs if the throttle position is greater than 92%. Speed is taken into consideration here when setting the driver set point torque

2. See answer 1.
