What's a soldering iron?
Air con on or off makes no difference.
Outside sensor is reporting accurately on the centre display so hopefully that can be ruled out.
I've had a word with Dave at Intaservices. They have done a bit of exploratory work a couple of times when they have had the car for other stuff. As far as he can work out the water temp sensor is working ok. He's measured it for resistance across a range of temperatures and he thinks it is all good. If it is sending the signal to the control panel, and we have now ruled out the in-cabin sensor, he is thinking it must be be climate control panel itself that is at fault.
Ideally he would like me to take the car in so that he could swap it out for a spare and see what happens, but he doesn't have one right now, and if I waited till he did I'd have the inconvenience of getting the car to them, and if it did turn out to be the control panel I'd still have to buy one.
Or I can just order one from Autolusso for £48 and try it out for myself. At that price I think it is worth a go. If that doesn't work and I do have to go back to Intaservices after that, well at least something else is ruled out, but FINGERS CROSSED for the new panel, eh?
