    This week started a fun new problem that I cant find any info on.

    The vehicle has been off and sitting for 18hrs. Upon startup I immediately get a message saying the suspension will adjust when it cools down. Again, it has not been on in nearly 18hrs. Plugged in my IID Gap Tool and it shows the compressor at 145 degrees C. I cleared all faults and tried again. Same thing happens right away. In total at this point the vehicle has probably been running for 10min. I let it run for another 35min with the Gap Tool plugged in just to see if the temp drops and it lives at 143-145C. Compressor isn't running or trying to do anything.

    Compressor and front struts were replaced with new in May.

    Maybe a temp sensor issue for the compressor? But I have no idea how to go after that.

    Anyone ever seen something similar or have any ideas?
