New Alfa owner needs help

I have just recently purchased a 2000 156 TS. I am having issues with my climate control, when I first drove the car (after purchasing) I couldn't adjust the temperature in the car - it was stuck on hot !! The next time I drove the car I was stuck with cold air. The a/c seems to be working fine as do all the other controls dials. Any suggestions ???

Re: New Alfa owner needs help

I dunno if the dial is potentiometer driven, if it is this could be the problem. New potentiometer isn't expensive in itself but fitting might be, take it to an auto electricians not an Alfa Dealer.

Welcome to the forum

P.S. a Google define: comes up with

'An instrument for measuring differences in electric potential. Essentially, this instrument balances the unknown voltage against a known, adjustable voltage. If the balancing is accomplished automatically, the instrument is called a self-balancing potentiometer. Potentiometers are frequently used in conjunction with thermocouples for measuring temperature.'

Just so you know what one is.
