    Most newer cars at work have the on/off setting in one of the menus for the dash screen/display, found anything in there?

    Don't go getting Aircon and Climate control mixed up. Two different things really.(when referring to the manual!) ECC is the overall name for the heating/air conditioning. When refereed to as aircon is just the the cold element of the ecc.

    It can be turned on/off using the * button which should be above the re-circulation button on the left of the display panel.

    To ensure its on/off Hit the info button on the console - scroll through and it will bring up the climate control current settings. As you press the * you will see it turning on/off

    This had me totally confused when making sure my car was set up for the stop/start to work.

    I had a hired car for a few weeks, it was something that annoyed the crap out of me too... I worked out in the end how to turn off the Auto ECC, but the fans still kicked in on almost full everytime I started the damm car regardless of what temp it had been set to before switching off.

    The fan speed on startup can be changed in the config as well.

    ok, im.familiar with * meaning aircon , but surely when the light is on this means aircon is on. im confused a little, dont mind the CC being on but dont want the AC on unneccisarily.

    Right, Goto Config, Veh Settings and Climate and Air settings. You can then select "Climate Control" This will determine if the * is illuminated or not when you start the car. Its confusing the way its worded - but i guess thats VX for ya! Hope this helps mate.

    Page 115 in the manual - which is not much help until you figure it out by playing first!
