    Auto Air recirculation?

    Hi guys

    For some reason everytime I press the Auto Air recirculation button on my 57 plate SB, the light comes on and goes off straight away. Anyone have any ideas why this could be happening? Has happened suddenly as been working since I bought the car 6 months ago. Not had chance to connect VCDS up, but wondering if any1 had the same issue and rectified it. Thnx in advance.

    SB? is that the new concept audi you mean S3??

    Mate the best thing i would recommend at this time, if you have got hands on VCDS scan it for codes, may be an easy fix, may be something that requires attention. VCDS will be so much accurate that out guess's on here.

    If not 57plate should have a years warranty remaining. Let audi pay for the repair, nothing to worry about.
    Thats what warranty made more.

    it could be the air circulation motor thats eff'd
    Audi A3 2.0 tdi sport..many mods to follow...just too fussy when it comes to making decisions!

    According to CCDs there is a fault with the air quality sensor however it's started working again so have cleared the fault, anyone else had this issue?

    Check out the FAQs in my sig. It's caused by a fault. It'll probably come back.

    I've moved this here so it may benefit others in future.

    To be honest I have never heard of an air quality sensor but as you're within warranty then I hope you can get it sorted pretty easily.
