    Default Climate Control not cooling

    Hello all

    Havnt been on fer a while cos had no probs with car.

    Driving back from Cleethorpes on Hot Saturday and tried to turn down the heat to cool on blower, it didnt get colder? tried the aircon button but still didnt get colder. The fan works, it just blows hot air. Nearly cooked.
    All button lights work.
    The only way I can get it to stay cool is by pressing the recirc button. or open the windows, but on our roads that is not a comfortable option, every conversation is shouting.

    Someone said to me that the aircon might need regassing??

    Hope someone has some ideas.

    I got mine serviced for £60 by a mobile guy. He extracted the coolant, vacuumed the system to remove moisture, added UV dye. Do Kwik fit do this or just top it up?

    He doesn't say about extracting the old coolant or vacuuming just UV.

    I had a top up done on my old car and after a while it starting smelling even after using the stuff your spray through the pollen filter intake. A full service i.e. a pump down got rid of the smell but the car was 8 years old. I go for the full service every 3 years as I suffer badly from hayfever.

    I had mine done twice by VX under warranty, both times they UV'd it and found nothing wrong, seems to be pourous somewhere in the system.

    I thought you had to use it every couple of weeks otherwise it will leak. Average leakage is 15%/yr.

    Hi glenboy

    I got the aircon regassed but still not cooling. Even when aircon is switched off, when I turn the dial to cold its still hot???????

    Kwik Fit did not charge me FYI.

    Soundz like the compressor is working cos I can here a change in the revs and in the blower, and the blower is working.

    Question, is there a compressor and a pump or are they the same thing?

    Compressor = pump. It may be a daft question, but does your display show "eco" near the bottom of the display?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
