    Low temperatures and air con

    Just curious really. On other cars I have owned the aircon won't turn on if the temperature is less than a certain amount, say 5C. I believe this is to stop the compressor freezing. On the Audi I think this would be equivalent to not being able to turn off Econ mode. However it doesn't stop you. So what's going on?

    1. They solved this problem
    2. You're expected to be a grown up and do this yourself if the temp is low

    Anyone know?

    Maybe the light is illuminated but nothing is happening the other end, so you think all is normal?
    Its the same on hgvs cant remember the cut of temp but 5degc does sound about right
