    2011 A3 fan blower not working?

    Ive taken it all apart and i think theres a intermittent fault on the resistor pack or fan, I'm going to get a 12v supply to the fan tomorrow and see what happens, looks like it could be the resistor, its not a plug fault anywhere as i wobbled them all as it was running, ill report back tomorrow!

    2011 A3 fan blower not working?

    My blower's randomly stopped working today, i can hear the louvres moving when i press the buttons to direct the air around, the climate control system still works but the fan won't blow at all. Ive checked the fuse and thats fine, the fan sounds ever so slightly like its trying to move when you...

    Stage 1 remap 2.0 tdi 140bhp

    Who's told you that? I'm considering having mine done that's on 111k miles. I was told by the tuner the only issue would be the clutch slipping if it was worn, other than that everything should be fine. Well established companies aren't going to remap cars that will lead to major parts of the...

    Remapping high milage 2011 TDi 140

    Yeah just spoke to Ecotech near me in North Wales he said just to watch the clutch but if it's done motorway miles it should be fine and if there's any sign of clutch slip he would reign the torque in!!

    Remapping high milage 2011 TDi 140

    Right i recently swapped my S3 for a 2.0 Tdi 140 as i needed to free up some cash, and naturally I'm pining after more power. My A3 is a 2011 2.0 Tdi but its done 110k (one owner was leased to a car parts company) so FSH etc and everything works as it should and it had a new EGR valve before i...

    Is this suspicious?

    £11-13k would be about the going rate for a BE sportback with 70k on the clock from years 09-11 id say! So its too cheap id say!

    Can cold weather cause Limp Mode?

    Im sorry but you are kidding yourself mate. If the engine goes into limp mode the engine management light comes on. Sounds like your car has a problem and needs some attention asap, id say something wrong with the turbo if it lost all power. Limp mode is triggered by a fault in the engine...

    My A3 black edition TDi

    ****** hell that's a real good increase! Do you still have the dpf fitted? as I know removing it (don't anyone start on about MOT, the dpf's are covered by trays which they cant remove on a test, also most companies that remove them take the dpf housing off remove the gubbins and refit the...

    Can cold weather cause Limp Mode?

    Engine management light on? (flashing glow plug?) if so then it may be the egr valve, I had this on my 2.0 tdi the other week.. It went in and out of limp mode for a few days then went into limp mode with the emissions light on and the emissions light didn't clear. Its an expensive fix though...
