Question about 1999 BMW 323 Series

1999 323is Air Conditioner woes

Cool-ish air seems to be actually coming out of the vents, however only when accelerating.

The main issue seems to be that the digital display for the Air Condition does not come up at all, none of the buttons light up and hitting them doesn't seem to do anything at all.

I just recently had it in for its regular service, not more than 2 weeks ago and I do have an aftermarket deck with an ipod connector. I am wondering if the issue is not just a simple wiring problem stemming from my aftermarket equipment.

The climate control units on 3-series are notorious for problems. I doubt your aftermarket kit will have anything to do with it.

Try a replacement control unit, possibly borrow one from a friend (they take about 5 mins to change over)

You answered your own question. It definitely sounds like a vacuum problem. Now the question is, how to find it! It sounds like the problem is under the hood, and may also be related to the ABS fuse... check the fuses under the hood first... then listen for the sucking sound of a vacuum leak. Sorry I can't be more specific!

It sounds like a heater blend door issue inside the heater box that is actually not closing all the way to allow either cool or hot air or visa/versa.

AC/heater vent only blow out hot air


that switch controls a vacuum operated door that lets a/c or heat thru.when accelerating,the vacuum in the engine changes so it sound like a vacuum issue.take apart the center stack and there is a vacuum actuator in there connected to the flap door .i have seen those have issues with the metal tab broken away from the plastic that moves it.is the a/c piping cold under the hood where it goes into the heater a/c assembly?the compressor should be cycling on and off and the pressure tested.

Check for a vacuum leak. The vacuum cannister under the evap. case will crack and cause a leak. I just install a new vacuum cannister,check valve and hose going to inside of van.
