    Hi,

    I seem to have an issue with my fan control on my ventilation system.
    My car has dual temperature control, and whatever fan speed I set the digital display to, seems to bear no relation to fan speed output.
    Even on the auto setting, the fan will pick up and slow down as and when it pleases.
    It normally ends up after a few minutes of up and down, deciding that it wants to settle on a fairly high blow speed....which can be a little annoying !
    All the a/c works fine....although up and down on fan speed.
    Has anyone experienced this before

    Thanks

    Pickle

    Yeah, all the a/c works fine, air distribution and temperature control, just the damn fan speed.
    Any ideas ??

    Thanks Mick, I have the car going in for an issue with the idle and pick up on the car on Tusday, so I'm going to ask them to have a look and see whats the cost of getting that done at the same time...I have also asked to have a look at an airbag light issue and rear sensor issues, they give a continues beep as it goes into reverse for a couple of seconds, then nothing, any ideas on that one ???
    Just out of interest, are the FSR's that unreliable that you carry a stock of them in case you have one go ? lol
    How much are they ? I have aquired the diagrams for changing them...are really they that easy change yourself ?

    Thanks for all your help with the FSR, all sorted now, and managed to get it sorted pretty quick.
