    Hello!!

    I possess a 1996 318is and the heater / air con has stopped working. The climate control unit appears to be working, all lights are operational, temperature display, power etc but there is no air being delivered to the vents?

    Could it be a fuse? the blower has gone?

    Any help appreciated.

    Have you checked the fuses yet?
    is there power at the fuse(s) for the heater?
    Does it not work on any fan power setting?

    Sounds like the final stage resistor or hedgehog resistor.

    It just started working again this morning? dodgy connection somewhere?

    Thanks for the advice.

    Will most likely be the final stage resistor/hedgehog as otherwise known
