2001 New Beetle Air conditioner problem

Was driving along and the recirculator stopped. I still get cool air on the regular air conditioner setting, and all four of the fan settings work. However, when I switch on the recirculator (which is needed right now as it is 109 in Oklahoma), I get very little air and the fan does not help.

SOURCE: air recirculation door

a new motor would take care of that , cause the sensing switch(potentiometer) is in the motor assy.. so if the motor runs past the desired position then the switch is bad in the motor pack. if the swicth on the dash was bad then the motor wouldn't move because it thinks it is in the right position and no action is required. i just hope the splines are not stripped on the recerc. door from extended malfunction. - good luck.

Dodge magnum gets a lot of fogging inside cabin how do I stop that?

close off the recirculation lever for the air conditioner
use the ac to remove the humidity from the cabin air ( that is what it is designed to do)
use the climate control set on cool to warm to keep the cabin temp at a comfortable level until the humidity is removed

Inside cab blows out hot air controls are off but air still comes out

OUTSIDE AIR: Press this button to direct the system to use outside air.
Pressing the OUTSIDE AIR button will cancel the RECIRCULATION button.

RECIRCULATION: Press this button to limit the amount of outside air entering your vehicle.
This is helpful when you are trying to limit odors entering your vehicle or attempting to quickly cool down the interior. Pressing RECIRCULATION will recirculate air continuously.

RECIRCULATION is used when the fan control is OFF to limit odors, outside air and dust from entering your vehicle. All button lights will go off. The last setting selected will activate when the blower is turned back on.
Pressing the RECIRCULATION button will cancel the OUTSIDE AIR button. To return to normal operation and to prevent stale air, be sure to return the OUTSIDE AIR.

Between HEATER and BLEND mode, outside air is forced to reduce window fogging. If the RECIRCULATION button is pressed, the LED indicator will flash three times indicating that forced outside air is activated and RECIRCULATION is not available.

I think what your experiencing is normal. If you want to keep cold air form coming into the cabin, press the recirc button.

I hope this helped, icon_e_biggrin.gif

Problem with the heater in cab to outside air switch

It sounds like the cabin air filter - sometimes called a pollen filter - maybe be blocked or frozen up.

Hope this helps you a bit. If it does, a "Fixya" rating would be much appreciated. If it doesn't
help you, I'd be grateful if you didn't bother with a rating at present - they can't be increased later
if I do manage to solve your problem! Just come back and tell me what you found. Cheers, D
