Question about Seat Ibiza

Open Question

2001 Seat 1.4 Ibiza. AC intermittently comes on while driving. Also radio occasionally turns itself on unless a cassette is left in the set. Is this a combined fault that requires a replacement radio/

Radio/cassette player & heater control assembly. Possible shared fault with electric system. AC Intermittently turns on causing all the heater controls to freeze. If the radio is turned off/on it allows the AC to be turned off & the heater controls will operate as normal once again. I suspect the master board is integrated within the radio player? Are these combination radio/LCD units a common fault requiring replacement to address this type of fault?

SOURCE: CD stuck in CD player. Cassette and radio works good. But CD stuck.

This symptom is often a sign the player is nearing its end of useful life. But, sometimes it is merely due to a collection of dust, dirt or a foreign object lodged in the mechanism. Sometimes it is a logic error inside the electronic memories.

So, there are a number of possibilities.

Here is what I would do:

ONE: Do NOT force it or use tools to pull the disc out.
TWO: If you can find the wires that supply the 12 volts to the unit, pull that wire so there is no power to the unit whatsoever for at least 30 seconds. That will reset the electronics inside the player.
THREE: IF you cannot find the wires, or if they are too hard to get to, you can pull the plus cable off the battery; raise the hood and with a wrench loosen the bolt holding the plus cable onto the battery terminal. Pull it off for at least 30 seconds or longer, then put it back on. This will perform a hard reset as in TWO.
FOUR: If still no removal try this technique:
http://www.wikihow.com/Remove-a-Stuck-CD-from-a-Car-CD-Player

If it is not an expensive unit you may find it a superior investment to purchase a new player rather than pay a tech to repair it. (In the worst case the unit must be pulled, cover removed and disc manually removed; then you may find out there are damages or defective circuits awaiting further repairs; probably looking at a charge of $75 or more if you go to a service shop).

Let's hope the ideas above kick it out and it returns to normal useage.

SOURCE: heater/blower fan not working at all after intermittently working

Heater motor is prone to water damage when the small drain scuttle drain gets blocked (usually by leaves).
If the passenger footwell carpet is damp, that's probably the problem.
Worth checking regularly anyway, and/or remove the small cover over the drain which is part of the problem.
Remove the heater assembly (located over passenger footwell) and replace is the easy answer.
It is possible, depending on ability, to strip and repair.
New from Europarts around £130, used around £60.
Have fun!

SOURCE: blower has stopped working in my 2002 seat ibiza

found this on http://www.seatcupra.net: The heater issue will be due to the heater matrix. Its a black box on the passenger side, below the glovebox. You'll find a heater resistor that's your problem. Although the copper contact may not be touching behind the switch bit.

SOURCE: Steering wheel lamps do not work (radio controls, temp, cruise)

The lights on the steering wheel are in the switches. To fix the lights, the whole switch needs to be replaced. Same thing goes for the Tempature Controls and radio. Overall, I think it would be very expensive to replace all of the switches to get the lights working. I have the same vehicle, and almost all of the lights are out.

I think the lights behind the gage controls are replaceable, although you still have to rip out most of the dash to get to them.

I have the auto-sense wipers, so I was leaving the wipers on all the time, and the would only work when needed. The bad part I finally found out about this was that while the wiper switch is on (even though they were not wiping), it caused all of the dash lights, switch lights and rear parking light to be on. I think this alone significantly cut down on the life of the bulb.

For now, I am just living without the lights. The temperature control is very expensive (just the part alone).

You can usually find the best price for these things at http://www.rockauto.com

SOURCE: Heater/AC control no longer allows change in temperature

You have one of two possible problems.

1) The temperature shaft retention nut is loose behind the knob

2.) The wires to the potentiometer part of the temperature may be broken.

Either one is common to this vehicle. The replacement of the AC controller is about 900 dollars. If the wires are broken, they can easily be reattached to the circuit board via soldering. What you would have to do is remove the control box from the dash, and disassemble it. Once the unit is apart, there are 3 wires from the temp knob to the circuit board that need to be re-soldered. The unit CAN be repaired, as opposed to the expense of replacing it.

Seat Ibiza 2006 car keeps cutting out whilst driving what is the cause of this


Could be so many things need more info. When it cuts out, does it act as if it's running out of fuel-- sputtering, or just dead on/off? If the latter, I would suspect bad ignition module, coil, crank/cam sensor. If the former, could be fuel pump, relay, filter. These intermittent problems can be tricky.

Battery will jump, not hold charge. While driving, cd player and radio come on and off by itself. Also other electrical issues like the electric seat and door locks are intermittantly acting up.


Electrical problem in cars can be a real bear to troubleshoot. Suggestions are a leak to ground draining the battery. Bad battery a possibility but this wouldn't explain the other problems. Check that you have good grounds and connections. This kind of problem can have pros scratching their heads but a good one might zero right in on the problem.

My seat ibiza radio keeps turning itself on and running the battery down


Simple solution for anyone! Had the same problem with radio turning itself on in my Seat Ibiza Stella 1.4 2000. Here's what you do..
. Remove front panel
. Disconnect tape player and open it
. Clean the mother board paths(bottom side) with some chemical liquid not to strong(i used sticker remover) from black dirt. You can scratch between paths with a needle for better effect.
. Put all back together
. Problem solved.
It was driving me mad but now it's working when I want it to :)

Seat ibiza 1.4 16v 02 plate cutting out at idle at junctions occasionally, regardless hot or cold, code reader shows no fault!


I have the same car and had the same problem, it turned out to be a hole in the vaccume pipe that leads to the engine.

If thats not the reason It may be the ignition coil, which is a common fault in seat ibiza's, this would cost around 75.00GBP to fix.

this site may help www.usedcarexpert.co.uk ,, the site gives good info about all cars and lists common faults and how to fix them.

Hope this helps
