'LO' setting went missing?

Got a small query lol has anyone ever heard of the heater control losing its 'LO' setting? Instead of LO-25 mines goes from 15-25, but 18 degrees comes up as 'LO' for some reason. Yet, the temperature coming out the vents is warm (probably is 18 degrees) is there a way to reset this and get 'LO' temperature back? Thanks for any help anyone can offer.

A video I found on YouTube with the same problem. No idea of any solution as it was originally posted in 2015

IIRC there is a thread here somewhere about how to fix this problem, but I can't find it with a quick search.

The solution was to disconnect the battery for a while

Thanks, I had a look myself before posting and couldn't see anything about it. Usually they came up with a replacement relay, but those weren't the same problem. I'll have a more thorough look later on 👍

As easy as that? Not like me to get a easy fix for a problem 😁 how long would you disconnect it for (if you can remember) also does everything work as it should afterwards, does the standard double din have a code I mean? I don't think it does

30 minutes should be enough. standard double din has no code.

Right, finally got round to doing this. After disconnecting the battery for 30mins, the 15 degrees setting is now missing. But, it now goes from LO, 16, 17... 28, 29, HI. The LO setting doesn't feel very cold though 🤨

Thought I would post an update on this for future reference, incase someone else has the same problem. Disconnecting the battery for 30 mins did reset the temperature settings, although 15 degrees is now missing (haven't used this setting since owning the car, so this doesn't bother me) 'LO' is back where it should be in the order, and is blowing out ice cold air. As the battery was disconnected I had to

*Set the date/time again
*Resave my preset radio stations
*Change the dimmer on the dash, as when I put my lights on the dash went really really dull.

Thanks for your help folks 👍
