Re: 156 Climate Control - Auto or Manual?
The air con works when I turn it on using the air con button, but according to the manual you can enable automatic air conditioning so that the compressor/air con (including the light) will automatically come on whenever the temperature requested by the climate control is below the outside temperature.
To do this you set the controls in a certain position with the engine off, then turn the key and turn the fan to auto and off twice. This toggles between auto and manual. However as the method to switch to auto and to manual is the same I can find no way of determining which mode it is in.
Today with the outside temperature showing as 14 degrees I turned the temperature to full cold and left the fan in auto (engine running), the air con didn't start, so I followed the instructions to change the mode to auto and then tried again. still the air con didn't start.
So, as I asked before, is there a way of determining whether it is currently in auto or manual, or am I doing something wrong in following the manuals instructions to switch modes.
