    I remember reading somewhere that it won't engage the aircon if the temperature is too cold outside. The button will light up when you press it, but it won't engage if the air outside is colder than the air it will produce. You need to test it when the temperature warms up a bit....

    lol don't quote me on it, but it does make sense. What's the point of the aircon engaging if the air it's sucking in is colder than it can produce. I think it only works if the temperature is above 4-5 degrees C or something....

    Page 128 in the destruction manual: "At low outside temperatures the cooling unit (cooling compressor) switches off automatically." The Aircon light stays on, but the compressor is dis-engaged
