Question about 2006 Volkswagen Passat
Hi, I've bee having problems with my A/C. Sometimes it blows really cold air specially when its running consistently for at least 15-18 minutes on the highway. However, when I am in the city, going stop light to stop light the A/C seems to blow warm air. I had the VW dealer replaced the compressor and the condenser once because the compressor stopped working completely. It was working for a few days and then the problem is present once again. I took it back to the VW dealership and they said nothing was wrong. I keep having the same issue where the A/C keeps blowing warm air if I am stopped or again if the car is in drive gear and going in the city. Has anyone had this issue with their Passat? If so, can you please share what the problem was?
Thanks for your help.
There is an electrical relay that is malfuctioning. I had the same problem on my 2000 VW Passat. I just got it fixed, part cost 48 dollars and labor will be about an hour.

I've heard it's a bad solder joint on relays. Checkout passat world forum

I'm going through this same problem. It started months ago when I noticed it blew hot air at times. It progressively got worse, and I especially noticed it when I put the car in ParK. With the engine running and in Park, the heat came on. This happened to me on more than one occasions. This weekend it went totally crazy, now it is only blowing "Heater" heat with the air turned on. Not a good situation to be in. I have eliminated fuses and any other troubleshooting. I will be taking it back to the dealership yet again. They act like I'm crazy.

I heard it could be a fuse, having the same problem going to try that. Its cheap and easy.
