The second one blew out I hope today. Both times it happened when I put the blower on high when the car was wxtremely hot. Take the relay apart, find the joint and re-solder or just buy a new one. If you don't want to have to pay a shop, then you have to educate yourself on how things actually work so that you can diagnose the problem. The Dealership had it for a month without ever knowing what was wrong with it,they replaced the steering column and all electrical and we've had issues with it ever since.

It might save a ton of money, especially because the compressor replacement and the dashboard removal don't solve the problem. It was completely gunked up with goo, which is why it wasn't working. I should learn to decompress in other ways than abusing the good folks here.
When got the car back, I was told they replaced another compressor for me. Originally had issues with the battery - batter was replaced. I've heard so many things, trust is an issue now. Originally had issues with the battery - batter was replaced. So I got a loaner again. Of course, no one is checking warm air in 90 degree summer. And this week not at all.
Does anyone have any additional info? It seems to be getting worse. He showed me the piece afterwards. I'ts at the mechanic now, over Easter, and he is trying several things to fix it. Sometimes it works, sometimes not but getting worse. These terms are used for identification purposes only. If you open the drivers door you will see a harness stretching from the frame to the door. There is a tech bulletin on the ac.
Went back to dealer again. Don't know if he ever got to that step, but he did want to see about replacing some temperature control mechanism first as a cheaper solution. Any help is greatly appreciated. Copyright © 2005 Volkswagen Talk - All rights reserved. You don't seem to be very knowledgeable either, you just seem to have a big mouth and a need to be noticed. Can't count the times I've had this attended to. I can live without warm air in summer, but problem still persists.

Automatic roll up of driver and front passenger window is also not working. The first time it went out was three months after I bought the car. But when I did it today, guess what, no warm air at all. What a shop charges is not that far out of line, because a good shop will actually learn and understand what they are working on.
I have no idea whats wrong and im very displeased with it. Sorry, my comment was uncalled for. This happened once or twice a few years ago but never returned.

I'm not under warranty and I feel like my dealership is not willing to deal?? Send it back to dealer. Took it to my mechanic and he said he'd probably have to do the dash-ectomy to get to the valves that were malfunctioning. Also today i went to start my car and my engine actually stuttered, which it never does, but then turned right on the next try. There is a tech bulletin on the ac.
