2006 Passat Air Conditioning Problem

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'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.

My ac in my 2006 saturn ion blows cold air when its under 80 degrees outside but when its over 80 degrees it will blow warm air sometimes and cold sometimes what could be wrong with it


You likely need to charge the AC with freon. If it has been a year or three since you've had it checked, it is probably low on freon and needing to have some added.

A/c not blowing cold a/c light comes on but no cold air


Hi,

When your car air conditioning is blowing hot air, this means that refrigerant cannot absorb the heat coming from your car passenger compartment.

This kind of problem often cause by a refrigerant leak or a clogged condenser.

If you have a steady reduction of cold air from your car air conditioning system, the possibility is that the refrigerant is slowly leaking out of the hose or seal.

Another reason for the gradual reduction of cold air produce by your car air conditioning system is the clogged condenser but this is only a contributing factor.

To solve the problem you are experiencing, you must first check the condenser for dirt, debris or bug that is building up outside the car condenser, this is the part that is like a mini-radiator mounted in front of your car radiator;

Try to clean this with a soft brush also, spraying with pressurized water will do. This will improve your car air conditioning problem.

However,if the problem persists,it means you have to refill your airconditioner compressor with a refrigerant(freon gas).

Good luck!!!

Air conditioning works great but will sometimes get to putting out warm air. What causes this?


I have had this problem before, In my case i took it to my local machanic and we discovered i had high imput causeing the ac compressor to over charge. and the freon that makes teh cold air, needs to be heated really hight to make the reverse affect of cold air. In return over heating and shutting down blowing hott air for it to cool off. I needed to replace the part that the electrical wire clips into.

Ford ka heater blows hot air all the time


Your problem is a faulty heater control valve. The design used on these vehicles allows for hot water to flow constantly and compete with the evaporator as there is no blender door. You have to replace the valve and possibly the control head. Meanwhile, you can bypass the valve to have cold air

Air conditioning


Yes! You are absolutely right, sometimes when you drive on rough roads, the lines from the condenser(cold air module) may get loose and you lose your cold air. The fact that it's blowing in one part of the vehicle and not the other is a testament to that. The best advice is to get the air conditioning checked out. they do this really neat thing where they pressurize the line to find out where the leak is coming from. Hope this helped.

Check the fuses under the hood for corroision. They should be locarted on the right hand side looking under the hood. I have a 2000 beetle that I was having problems with. technicans check everything and said all was o.k.. I found a fuse that was burnt up and cover with corroison. I cleaned the terminals replaced the fuse and have had no more problems.
