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 don’t work, they won’t retract, the rear screen demister does not work, and the heated seats don’t 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

Was in the dealers for a day last week but could not find the fault. Rebooked for three days this week. Just picked it up, they said it was a relay. Seems ok now! Took the dash to bits to fault find and cured the rattles as well. :) Happy

Hello all, I have a very similar problem with my 2.2 EX; no temp reading, all blower switches dead, rear demister dead.

I had assumed it couldn't be the relay since the problem affects the various different things, but this thread suggests otherwise, so any further advice gratefully received! I'm assuming the relay mentioned would be the one in the engine bay fusebox? Thanks

all sorted, turns out it was interior fuse 36 that had blown. I didn't realise IG2 HAC in the fuse guide included mirrors, blowers, temp sensor etc.

Absolutely brilliant. Fuse 36 solved it. Someone knocked off my wing mirror the other day whilst I was parked at the roadside. Insurance will sort that, but shortly after the accident the following stopped working: climate control, aircon, heated screen and mirror controls. I thought I'd be in for a dispute with the insurance as it must be related to the accident but difficult to prove.

To remove what was left of the mirror to prevent damage to the paintwork from it flapping around, I had to cut the electric cable. My guess is two of the ends must have touched. (I didn't have any tape with me)

This thread had saved me a lot of hassle.

Thanks
