AC controls

Hello Alfa Owners,

My 1999 156 is AC is acting up.
It was stuck on the feet direction, and wouldn't change no matter where you set the knob.

After a couple of Climate control settings reset ( removed the battery, and did the auto/manual AC start procedure), I was able to have it blow on the face.

Still the air direction knob is not functioning.
When I first start the car, the air circulation button is set to "air from outside", regardless of which air setting i leave it on before turning the car off (I always leave the air on Recirculation)
and Now I notice that there is a fan start delay (approx. 30 seconds) after i start the car.
During these 30 seconds, the air doesn't blow, and the air recirculation button doesn't light up, even though i pressed it.....after the 30 seconds, air blows, and recirculates inside.

Worthy to mention, i still hear the flaps self-testing whenever I start the car.

Any Ideas on what's going on?

Could be electronics behind. Mine got fried due to water ingress (carrying my windsurfing kit in the car). Cheap second hand part, easy to fit.
