    Settled into a pattern !

    I have what started out as a totally random AC fault........that has now settled in to a pattern !!
    Each Morning ( for a month now) on the way to work the AC blows cold ( set on 17c) for exactly 4 miles. After that it blows red hot for up to another 4 miles and then reverts back to working properly. The lower you set it the hotter it blows. As you raise the temp setting the blower slows as you reach room temp and then goes back to full blast as you reach the top temp ( HI). The car then stands for 9 hours while i am at work and has never once faulted on the way home....

    Its booked in to Audi's next Tue so i will let you now what the problem was when its fixed in case anyone else has this on their car !i

    Problem solved by re programing the stepper motors that open and shut the flaps !!

    + new lamba sensor to cure bad running and engine light on...360 total

    Thanks for letting us know mate. How much would the reset be on its own?

    Hallo staz

    They charged me 93.50 inc vat but that included time to diagnose the fault and road test as well. thats the only break down on the bill.

    I have calmed down now and fallen in love with the old girl again ...
    A week with a brand new A4 1.8 SE loan car made me realise how Brilliant my A3 is !!

    Nice one, reasonable price I reckon!

    I know what you mean. I had a brand new A3 as a courtesy car but it was the BASIC model. No extras. No power. No soul. It was horrible!
