    Dual Climate Control

    Right im in work and cant be assed going to the car so going to ask you lot

    the other week i did something funny with the climate control

    twiddled the knobs a bit and i found that both sides would be the same temperature if only using the drivers side knob

    my neighbour turned his side up cos he couldnt hack the 16 degree heat and now my settings are messed up

    how do i do what i did before?? lol

    i mean, how do i set the climate control so i can adjust both sides with just the drivers side knob?

    thanks

    You need to hold the auto button for about 10 seconds or so and it will sync both sides to the drivers control.

    Does this function stay on even when turning the ignition off?

    If so I take it its just the same to return it to independant controls?

    Are you also aware that different temperatues can be set depending on which remote is used to unlock the car. My wife prefers the car to be a little warmer than me. I usually have the climate control set at 20. If my remote opens the car its set at 20. If my wife's remote is used it sets to 22.

    It is the key which stores the settings and transfers them to the car when the ignition is turned on with the key.

    I have to adjust the passengers side to get dual control (after I have held Auto) - is this right? Do you think they can change it via the VAG com?

    isn't it the key that you use to turn the ignition on that does it, rather than the one used to unlock it? have you tried unlocking the car with Mrs h5djr's key then starting it with yours?
    Having just re-read the item in the Manual, your right. It responds to the key rather than the remote.

    On mine, if I press and hold the Auto button it changes the passenger side setting to match the drivers side setting.

    If you mean what I think you mean, i.e. after pressing auto to sync the two, the left control changes both and the right control "de-syncs" them again, then it sounds like yours is coded for a LHD car somehow.

    Thats right, it works the opposite way around - the stealers have my car at the mo so I have asked them, but they didnt know if this was a coding thing.

    Can anyone confirm whether this is a coding thing? TIA.
