    Default strange AIRCON problem

    Just bought a 2008 vectra cdti.
    On the way home with the car i noticed when i switch on the aircon (at coldest setting) the air gets slightly warmer, switch it off and its freezing cold ???
    Im assuming the yellow light on the button means ON ?

    any ideas ?

    Sounds like it needs re-gassed at the least. If it hasn't been used the seals dry out and the gas leaks out.

    If an 08 reg car needs a regas, chances are the system has a leak.
