Re: Climate control dash light failure - any ideas?
It is for the benefit of the compressor not the engine. And not only the compressor but all of the air con. system. I know that from a friend of mine who own's a service centre for car air.con. According to him and his scientific explonation that I don't remeber if you do that your air. con. will last twice as longer.
Also the new 2.4jtd has an optional 5kw electrical heater that warms the engine coolant. The 147 1.9jtd has that heater as well and it is not as an option (for some warmer markets you dont have the heater).
Also why car air. con. is unable to work under 3 degrees. First it is pointless, the car air. con cant swich cycles from cooling to heating. So...secondly because of that you cant defreze the outside air.con. radiator...so if you use the air con. in low outside temp. the radiator will freeze and you know.
So DONT CHEAT your car....you will end up cheating yourself!
if it dosnt work under 3 degrees it is for a reason.
