heater faults
« on: February 12, 2013, 07:59:56 pm »
my heating is working ok but dont know about the cooling aspect, not much demand at the moment!!
however it does all flash for a while when the ignition is turned on, from reading other posts this is telling me there could be a fault. is there a way of getting the fault to display on the screen or is it a laptop jobby?

p.s. sorry to bombard with so many faults but you guys seem to have lots of the answers and i have lots of questions!!  lol.

many thanks 
lee.

irrc if the unit flashes for a few seconds then there is a fault somewhere,anything from requireing a regas to a split in a pipe?

you will need vag com,chris or mirez will point you in the right direction for this,or do a search as it has been mentioned,and it may even be in the faqs?

Cheers!
Looks like I will have to do the same, the hearing does work ok after the flashing stops so might just need a re-gas.
I see you have similar model, do you get a noisy start up from cold?

i get a slight twittering noise but it only does it if its been raining and splashed up onto the alternator belt.........well i believe that to be the case anyways  :-\. im sure i read on the forum somewhere that the display flashes if the aircon needs a regass. mine dont work so duno if it needs a regass lol.also got a servo/sensor missing from the rear heating on mine........... was like that when i bought it so might be the fault with mine  ;)

The flashing panel means a fault codes been logged, could be any number of things causing it although low pressure is the normal cause!
