Anyone have a "work around" that can trick the interior heater electronics
into thinking that the interior is colder than it appears so that it pumps
more heat to the interior ?
The problem is a lack of heat to the front footwells.
Unplugging the electrics to the two underbonnet solenoids produces stunning
heat (as both solenoids default to fully open) but immediately electrical
connection remade the system turns the heat down - even with both
thumbwheel controllers rotated to maximum heat position.
My initial thought was to try to physically move the footwell temperature
sensors to a diferent location, but they are extremely difficult to get at
(at 63 I'm no longer agile enough to clamber around footwells !).
The "workshop manual" available here in the UK from Hynes Books gives
absolutely no information about the electronic logic used in the interior
temperature controller - neatly passing the buck to MB.
Anyone any suggestions ?
