heater stuck on

My heater is stuck on -which may be ok in cold countries but when its 30 something outside you don't need to be baked in the car. Can anyone give me a heads up to a solution, my car is a 2000 156

Re: heater stuck on

Mine was either fully hot or fully cold. had the climate ECU reset to cure it. Half an hour labour charge.

Re: heater stuck on

Maybe a reset will cure it if you have aircon (I expect you do), but failing that, the diverter flap motor may have burnt out or the temp sensor is faulty.

Re: heater stuck on

Mine was caused by the outside temperature sensor in the exterior mirror. The heater was just compensating for what it thought the temperature was. Probably caused by power washing the mirror.
