    Climate control observation

    Has anyone noticed that when climate control (CC) is on auto, when I put my windscreen washers on and hold so washers come on.......the CC boosts in fan speed and calms down after a few seconds when arms have finished their wipe action.

    Anyone else noticed?

    It's actually closing the vent while the washers operate.

    Ahhh..........i was starting to think that I had a short somewhere.

    Just thought it was weird as the fan speed increases and can also be seen on the control panel..........suppose it is trying to protect the windscreen from the temp change

    Cheers

    I noticed it too. It's the recirculating motor I thnk, trying to prevent washer fluid smell from entering the cabin.

    Does anyone elses climate control unit grunt away after they stop the car and remove the key? Mine continues to make noises for ages after I remove the key, always has done! It's a bit iffy, I know a motor flappy thing is misbehaving too.

    mine sounds like a planes turbone engine shutting down when I switch the car off, sounds cool as ****....

    I haven't noticed mine changing when I put my wipers on, and I don't get a screenwash smell in the cabin either.

    I noticed the fan speed picking up too when I use the washers. Thought it was a problem for a while and then figured it must be a feature.

    I think I might have a problem with my Climate Control though. I've noticed the lights flashing on it occasionally. Like it turns itself off for a second and them back on. Happens at random and only ever see it out of the corner of my eye. Not sure if the radio does the same.
