I have a 2005 X3 with automatic climate control. I can't seem to get the
heat to work correctly. The A/C works fine but now that it's getting cold, I
need heat. (I bought it used and this is the first winter I've had it.)
If I leave the auto control on, and turn off the a/c button, all I get is
cold air coming out of the center section. I try raising the auto temp but
it does no good. If I switch to manual air flow, I can get warm air to come
out of the floor section and window section, but the center console still
blows cold air. I close the air recirculation so only the cabin air is being
heated. The A/C button is off.
Is there anything I'm doing wrong or any suggestions on how to get it to
work correctly. And, if in the manual mode I switch on the front window
defroster, it shuts off all other air flow.
