Strange faults linked to temp sensor
When I turn the ignition on (but not start the car) the outside temp reading in the multifunction display does not read any temperature. ---- Also the external air conditioning fans at the radiator used to come on, but they remain off. The small centre display used to show air con on auto (or man) and the car temperature settings, this is now blank.
I start the car and everything remains off as above including the outside temperature indicator. I press the climate control and it says can not use climate control unless the car is started. (The car is running). No switch or button associated with the climate control work, and the interior blower does not work. Also surprisingly when this fault is on, the wing mirror position adjusters donít work, they wonít retract, the rear screen demister does not work, and the heated seats donít work.
After approximately a mile, all of a sudden everything starts working again, more often than not, the outside temperature still does not indicate. But then again sometimes it does come on.
Going to the dealer tomorrow will let you know the outcome
