I have a 1984 Cadillac Eldorado the air conditioner runs when I have my heat on does anyone know what the problem is

If you have automatic climate control and you mean the AC compressor, that is normal if the ambient temperature is above 40 degF. If there is an AC button on your climate control panel, you should be able to override it with that.

AC fuse keeps popping

Put a set of gauges on your system and check the pressures with engine/AC running. If the pressures are the same on both low/high sides, your compressor is shot.

VAG suffer greatly with a signal failure to ECU that brings the choke on when cold. Your fault is text book of this.

Follow the top radiator hose to where it meet the engine, at that point you will see a sensor, it has 4 wires and is held in by a horseshoe clip. This is the water coolant sensor, replace it and you'll be happy again :o)

No air conditioning, flashing climate light

You should make sure you have proper charge for sure.has your battery gone dead lately? I know on some of them digital climate controls will act exactly like this and have to be reset or go through a setup sequence.

Passat problem

The climate control issue is most likely the air temperture blend door motor has quit working or the ac is low on Freon from a leak, also the control head can cause this problem, the vibration may be from hard engine mounts, when the rubber in the mounts ages it gets hard and does not absorb vibration as well, the pulsation is a low voltage issue and you should have the alternator tested.
