    Audi A3 fan heater resistor problem - Fan only works on full power!!

    Hi, has anyone else had this problem?? The link below is just a pic and part number for you to see it.

    I dont have the climate control in my car, i have the old style controls. Last week the heater fan stopped working for setting 1, 2, 3, but works full power on 4! Anyway seached about and found out if i replace the resistor all would be fixed. Ordered a new one from Audi, easy change the next day. BUT only lasted a couple of days.

    Phoned Audi about it and they tried to phob me off "you must of installed it wrong" lol its just plug and play!

    In the end i got them to order me another one. Has anyone had this problem with the resistor's not lasting? Are they a common fault?

    Sounds like the fan motor is pulling too much current and burning out the resistor. Can't think of another reason for it to burn out.

    Think you may have to change the motor !
