S3 8p - Econ staying on VCDS readings inside

    Hi All

    so had a new AC Condenser fitted around Christmas time & just got round to having the system re gassed.

    So for that period of time the controlling was running with Econ always on.

    Since re gassing (i wasn't around when this happened the GF was) which apparently went fine & nice cold air was coming out. Econ has been stuck on again.

    I've checked pressures today with a Halfords re gassing kit & the gauge read empty/low. Re gassed again but still the Econ wouldn't turn off.

    Here is a copy of a saved report from VCDS, values don't mean much to me but any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance
