    Hi, I have a small but annoying problem with the climate control settings, the button on the stearing wheel and on the dash to switch from recycled air to outside air is working the wrong way round. when I switch the ignition on the light is off but the unit is recycling the air so the car steams up, if I press the recycle button the light comes on and opens the flap to let outside air to enter. Can anyone help, is this likely to be a hard wiring problem or a software problem?

    may be a coding problem, it really needs to be put on a scanner and have the fault codes and live data looked at
