Question about 1996 Audi A4

1 Answer

Main dashboard air vents

For some reason, the main dashboard vents on my '96 Audi A4 are not allowing air to flow from them. The underdashboard vents work and the window vents work. I've tried manual isolation of the main vents but still no flow. Thanks in advance,
Chris

There is an air flow motor that changes the vents and opens and closes them. unfortunitely you truly want to wish this not to be your issue because in order to change it the entire dash AND heater box must be removed from the vehicle as well as the a/c discharged.

Hi just got an audi a4 2001, 1.9tdi 130bhp, the windows keep fogging up and there doesnt seem to be air coming out of the vent for the front windscreen??? can anyone help??? the back windown is fogging up...


Windows fog up because of the humidity in the car. Run the ac and this removes the humidity from the air and the windows will not fog. If you do not have air flowing from the vents then check that the selection control is moving the vent doors . Check that the vacuum line is connected and not broken.

Mass air flow will be located at top of the intake manifold right before air will actually enter the cylinder head. It will have a main air hose running through it to engine.

The airconditioner in my car works its cool through the floor vents and the vents on the dash but no air is coming through the main air vents ? the car is a vs berlina with climate control ?


I would say that the control unit isnt switching properly,from the mode button moving the vents air flow direction,best bet is to try and swap a mates one and see if the mode changes the airflow to the main vents,it may be the unit isnt allowing the switching,i think theyre vacuum controlled

Audi A4 1.9 TDI 130BHP engine power loss when it's raining


This is the correct solution..........replace the solenoid valve N239 as the electrical connection is affected by dampness. What happens is that the EGR valve is jammed open by the solenoid and this allows oxygen starved air into the cylinders (exhaust gas) and combustion is poor.
Quick fix is to disconnect the vac hose to the EGR actuator and block the end with a self tapping screw or pencil. This will work for sure....

1997 jeep wrangler ac will not blow out of main vents,blow out at feet and defrost vents


Maybe your dashboard vents are clogged, obstructed or stuck in close position somehow.

If not, check the air hoses that carry the cooled air to the main vents are not clogged, bent, ripped or simply detached.
If its practical for you, check if they are correctly placed, clean and general conditions are ok if you can.

If above are not the issue, go to check outlets of the A/C unit, its filters for the possible reason.

No I am a mechanic at Audi. The problem is that the the air flow to the central tappets may be causing the air flow sensor to trip and that is why. Try putting a small amount of WD40 into the petrol and that will work, its a very common problem.
