    The Econ button is what turns the airccon compressor on/off. If its staying on it indicates a problem as it stays on to protect the system from being used when its not working properly. It probably just wanted gassing but mine had a problem with a pressure switch that was only highlighted by running a vagcom scan.

    If it starts coming on and staying on again quickly then I would either get a vagcom scan or pressure test as you might have a leak.

    I just use the search button mate And have a good memory lol

    Dalespitfire is spot on, Staz's FAQ's are always worth a read for aircon issues.
