Aircon gremlin or not?

Post by Boroboy » Wed Apr 04, 2018 10:27 pm

Now I'm seeming to work my way round the car.
My aircon is switched off within the settings. However when I turn my heater fan on for the first time during the day/morning. My aircon comes on automatically. I then switch my dash aircon button off. It then does not come on again for the rest of the day, even if I've had a few stops and re-starts during the day, even when turnining my heater fan on & off again. Is this how it should work? Even though my aircon is switched off from the settings menu.
Many thanks.

Hi
Does it do the same with both keys? There is a section CLIMATE AND AIR QUALITY in both personal settings and vehicle settings have you checked them both?
My ac does not do what yours is doing. If you can't sort it I will have a look at all my settings and let you know what they are set to.

I'll try it using both keys and try the settings again.

Hi Boroboy,
I did reply , don't know where my reply has ended up. No problem to pm me, other than me not replying correctly.

Try performing the following:
Press :
menu-settings-vehicle settings-(climate and air quality or comfort settings, model dependent ) --climate control mode
3 choices should be available
Last setting
Or at vehicle start, always off or always on.
(You must be on always on)

The above controls the state of the cooling compressor.
The astra j had it aswell. Hope that sorts it for you

Interesting... Never saw these options. Not sure if mine have it. I'll check it next time.

My normal operation is similar as OP. If I shut engine off, AND the climate is off, next time I start the car and push the on button, it will come with the A/C on. If I previously had the climate on, but the A/C off, when I start the car it will remain on, same settings, no A/C.

My trick in the morning is turn the key but not start de engine. Push the on button of the climate. I will lit the AC button, but I deactivate it before start the engine.

I have got this information from the owners manual from pages 106 and 108 under vehicle personalisation. Hope it works for you.

There is a lot of features listed in the owners manual that are not programmed on the cars, such as;
Extended hill start assist options
Auto mirror folding options with remote key.

What year is it?? It is true that mine is an opel, from Spain. MY 17.5. Pretty sure I can't configure hill start and sure the mirrors need to be folded by the interior mirror's setup down button.

Steve thanks again for your reply and help.
Once I select "Comfort and Convenience" after selecting "Vehicle". There's no climate or Aircon option. Perhaps there's not an option to change it?
I'll have a look through the owners manual again.
I don't think I have climate? Don't have digital dials.
Maybe just Aircon. Have the Sri nav model.
The climate control section in my owners manual is from page 143 on.
Unless the aircon coming on for the first time is just a default setting?
Cheers.
