    Is it the fan, or the fact it's just blowing hot air?
    If the blower isn't working at all then it could be a duff blower motor (common fault as the brushes wear out with it being on all year round).
    Use a 12v testing screwdriver and check for voltage a the blower terminals
    If it's just blowing hot air then first thing to do is get it regassed (this is needed about every 4-5 years depending on use).

    There was a problem with my A4 which were fixed under warranty, I will have to dig the paperwork out as it shows what was done on the service schedule printout, unfortunately i'm not back in the uk until 17th July, also are you able to turn Econo mode off?

    Take a look at this link-
    It shows you how to fault find many problems by pressing a combination of buttons on the climate control screen. It will give you fault codes for the problem you are having. The table on the link shows you what the code means. Im not sure if this works on all of em but it worked on my friends a3.
    Oh and it also gives you a digital readout of your speed, engine tems and more!

    Good luck

    What's that got to do with the climate control?

    That is not relevant for the B6 Audi, our climate control is the dual zone type and does not have the diagnostics like the B5 did.

    AndyMAC FYI the blower on the B6 A4 does not have brushes, hence why it must be more expensive, unless you have a different discription to brushes?
