    Air Con

    Hope you all had a good Xmas and have a happy new year.
    I have never been aware of this before but i noticed that over Xmas my air con would not stay on, the system would blow hot and cold air but if i pressed the * button it would not stay on? but yesterday when the car was warmed up it worked fine, any ideals?

    It may depend on the outside temp. IIRC if its 5 degrees c or lower the aircon pump wont switch on so as to protect itself.
    Just a thought as its been pretty cold here lately in derbyshire.
