    Think he is meaning how to turn on the Air Con as on a lot of cars you have an A/C button to turn the A/C on or off.

    In the A4 with the climate control the A/C is on all the time depending on what temp you have the cabin set to. For example if you set your temp to 18 and the cabin is 21 when it will put the air con on to cool the cabin down to the desired temperature. To turn off A/C so i doesn't come on with the climate control press the ECON button, that will turn the A/C compressor off

    What does the econ button actually do?
    I never really bother messing with it, but from what I remember you can press the econ button and still set the temp to 20 degrees or what ever.

    Air con switch

    If you turn Econ on (ie so it lights up) it then turns the compressor off, so the air con won't work. So if you get into a hot car and set it to 18c the fan will blow ambient air not cooled air.
