Alfa 156 (possibly GT/147 as well) Air Con in Winter
Was a little shocked the other day when I couldn't engage the Air Con on my 156.
Turns out that Alfa have programmed the Air Con system to only work above certain temperatures. My book says 3.5 degrees and above (although this isn't cast in stone and depends largely on what Mario in the factory decided that day it seems
So if you can't get the Air Con going on your car, check the temp and if its under 5 or so degrees, then this is the most likely cause. One less thing to worry about.
