I checked the pressure again and it was pretty much the same this morning. So then I started the engine and ran the AC on Max at 60F and the low side pressure went up to nearly 100psi and the high side is now at 6.5 bar and seems to be staying there. So the high and low are indeed about the same pressure as predicted, and it seems to have plenty of refrigerant, so it's looking like a compressor issue.

I went in through INPA and found an activation ability for "Clima-compressor Relay KOREL". When I activate it, I can definitely hear it doing something. It isn't a "click", but it sounds like it's putting a very small, but discernibly audible load on the engine.

Does the compressor need to be replaced or if something else is causing the compressor to not run properly?
