    Interior heating fan keeps adjusting by itself!

    This is more annoying than anything but my heating fan keeps turning itself up! I turn it down again so its not blowing so much then a few miles later I notice its getting louder and check it and its moved a few bars up again!

    It will usually change the fan speed to keep the temp to what is set.

    So on a cold day it will start low speed then when the car warms up it will get faster and blows hot air to warm the cabin as soon as it can, when its at the requred temp it will slow down and give a steady speed.

    Not sure if this is what you mean though. When not in auto mode it shouldnt change anything

    What I find nice, is when you get into the car 1st thing with the outside temp -5deg, if you don't hit the demist button, the fan politely sits at minimum until the engine warms up, so you don't get cold air blasting into the cabin when it's bl**dy freezing.

    Cheers,
    Alistair
