    AC / Fan does not turn off!

    Hey all, so yesterday I was going to a mates house and when I turned my car on and the AC/fan just went on full blast. It wouldn't turn off . Only way to turn it off was to turn the car off. All the other buttons like the temp, mode etc were still working. Tried fiddling with the AC wire behind the dash but no luck. So I just drove it anyway. After a few hours, went to turn it on and it was all back to normal. ( this was at night at a cooler temp)

    Thought it was a one-of thing but it happened again today.

    I dunno but it happened when I started my car when its parked in hot temp.

    Anyone have a clue or this happened to them before? I know its a bit weird but any help would be great! Thanks

    **EDIT: its not just depending on the weather/heat.. was driving at night with it off and it randomly just turned on full blast and couldn't turn it off til i got home..and I think the let the air circulate inside the car/let fresh air in isn't functioning but the button for it works as it shows on the little screen thing.

    Help please. Thanks

    Re: weird AC / Fan

    car is an EK4, so the dash is all automatic with buttons..

    Nah the auto button light works but nothing happenswhen I press it. The only thing that really changes when pressed is the temp and the mode (where it directs the air to). Even when I try change the speed of the fan, it still stays on full blast.

    Left my car in the shade for a while and it works ok when I started it. Is it coz of the heat (but its never happened before til yesterday)

    Re: AC / Fan does not turn off!

    The controller works, because when Its playing up, I can a fuse in the engine bay off and fan stops working, when I put it back in everything works perfect again (but sometimes it just goes to full blast randomly and problems back).

    I was told that it might be a resistor so might have a look out for one to try, but if not I'll try the relay.

    For all those that have this problem in the future, it was the HEATER RESISTOR. Was told it controls the fan speed an AC.

    Thanks
