MICU recall has fixed climte control?
My outside air temperature sensor broke a couple of weeks ago and has been reading 55C since. Consequently the climate control would blow icy air unless you set it to "hi" because it thought it was so hot outside it "predicted" cold air was needed, or so I thought.
Anyway I had Honda look at the car yesterday and they confirmed I will need a new OAT sensor and submitted a warranty claim. They have to order the part in so I'll be going back in a week or so to have it fitted. In the meantime, whilst the car was in the dealer they replaced the fuse box under the MICU recall. What is confusing me is that now the climate control seems to be working again!
Or am I wrong?! I've driven 5 miles since I got back from the dealer so not long enough to tell if it's actually behaving now despite the faulty OAT sensor, but it was responding to the temperature setting and would blow cold, warm or hot air depending on the setting.
