Hi Everyone,

I'm new to this forum and new to BMWs... I've made a big step up from my old 1.6 Saxo VTR to a 318i SE Touring, and so far I love it!

I bought it on Monday for a good price, considering there are a few faults with it.

I have seen this fault crop up a lot with a lot of advice but it seems mine may be a slightly different scenario.

Whenever I start the engine the blowers come on straight away, always blowing out air at 28.5 degrees. I can't turn them off at all, neither can I lower the temperature.

I can however change the setting from Auto, to blowing at my feet, face, or windscreen.

I have a fair amount of knowledge from cars, just not BMWs...at all!

Thanks in advance for any help/advice you can give.
