yes low pressure washing your condenser coil will help. just be sure to hit it head on and not bend any of the fins on damage the coil. anything to help the air flow will work. the condenser coil "removes the heat" from your cab so if its cleaner more heat can be removed. I know on my truck my condenser coil has its own separate fan and is not in front of my radiator. looking down into my engine its in the front right hand corner. as far as strange lights coming on.. possible that your getting water into your pressure switches and they are causing codes.. also with the recharge kits I actually have never used them. I use a set of gauges and go right off of a 134a tank, I'm not sure how they operate but while charging the system be sure to throttle it slowly in through the low side going to fast could possibly overload the compressor. hope this helps let me know if you have any other questions
