EF air con poblem

Theair con on my EF is the climate air type where you dial in the temperature on the digital control panel and the unit does the rest. Lately, the buttons dont do as they should and they all seemed to have swapped functions.....
Is this common? Is here an easy fix??

Thanks

Re: EF air con poblem

Swapped how, heat blows cold, floor does demist, a little more info please.

Does it flash when you start the car or does the display show solid as normal.

I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think

Re: EF air con poblem

On start up display appears normal.

However:

Temp button turns fan speed to zero
Fan speed buton changes the mode from auto to manual
Recurculate button appears ok
Mode button turns on rear window demister and changes a vent
Rear window demist button now alters fanspeed

All buttons worked ok until about 1 week ago

thanks for your interest

regards

Dan

Re: EF air con poblem

I would suggest this:

Goto the nearest church, find the most experienced priest and ask them to exorcise the car, you must have a holden spirit in there ....... LOL

Failing that to work, check the interior forum I think there is a recent thread on how to test the climate control to get the error code/s , try that post the codes up and lets see what we can do.

EDIT: Here is the link Error codes on climate control for ef fairmont ghia save you some effort

Re: EF air con poblem

It sounds as if there is a vacuum leak,the ford workshop manual states that any problem that occurs when pushing buttons is a vacuum leak(ie.pushing mode button and instead of blowing on your face like the lcd screen shows it blows on the screen)
have it checked by an a/c specialist.
