Default Help - AirCon & Cooling Fans?

Hi all, long time broswer, first time poster.

I've been searching forums/websites for information and solutions. I was wondering if anyone had a similar scenario as my 2.0t A5.

It started when the car went in to get the air conditioning recharged at an indy shop. As soon as I picked the car up, the air conditoning was blowing cold. I noticed the fans running, but never though much of it since I was using the AC.
I noticed that as soon as the car turns on, both fans kick into high speed and shut off approx 5 mins after car is turned off. I ran over to another members house, had the engine codes read. It was a P0480 which is Fan Control Module 1. The mileage this code first showed up was the exact mileage when I dropped the car off the the shop for the recharge. I understand that this code code be the fcm, cts, thermostat, or fan itself. My question is that has anyone ever had an issue when the AC being overcharged resulting in the AC Refrig Pressure sensor causing the fans to run constant? Could this be the fix? Also, am I able to remove the AC pressure sensor without having to recharged the system again?

Thanks in advance!
