    Default Air-con mystery ( Signum )

    Noticed a glitch with my a/c the other day,....it works fine in any position
    other than screen de-mist, as soon as I turn the knob to that position it goes
    off, anybody else experienced this?

    Sounds like you have the air recirc and not the A/C. You cannot have the air recirc on with the screen on demist.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    iirc mine used to do that as well, could be something to prevent the vent nozzles freezing up, or to save the screen from cracking due to it being hot on the outside and cold on the in, like a reverse of don't pour hot water on a frozen screen.

    I think it's to do with preventing the screen from cracking.

    No problem! its just so it uses outside air to demist rather than the possible damp internal air
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
