It doesn't work that way. The switches aren't rated for the power of the load. If they can handle a maximum of 10A at 125VAC, they won't be able to handle more than that (10A) at 12VDC. In fact,...

That one or more cells of your battery aren't leaking at the bottom of the battery. I had a backup generator battery explode a month ago. The stain you showed was almost exactly the same as that.

Hopefully, you are in a state that doesn't allow that. I am in a state where the insurance commissioner is clearly owned by the insurance companies.

I suspect that this behavior varies from state to state. You may be in a good state. In other cases, she would get the accident surcharge, but you would still lose the accident-free discount.

There is no need to evacuate the system to change out the (unlikely to be your problem) pressure sensor. There is a Schrader valve that prevents refrigerant loss when you remove the sensor.

Actually, come to think of it, it may not allow the AC to run at all without an electric fan plugged in.

Sure you can, but A/C performance will suffer at low speeds unless you also add the aux electric fan that automatics have in front of the radiator.

How did you check the refrigerant level?
If you just looked at the low-side pressure, then you haven't really checked it.

It's a dome shaped thermal switch for your heated windshield spray nozzles. I thought all E46 have these. Look at your spray nozzles. If you see wiring there, then you do have heated nozzles.

You are low on refrigerant.
There are two blower wheels, but I believe they are both driven by the same (single) blower motor.

How would that help? He doesn't have a leak. The high pressure relief valve is venting refrigerant to prevent damage to the system. I suspect he knows where that is.
