Full Version: Air Con Not Working At Idle
Ford Owners Club - Ford Forums > Welcome to Ford Owners Club > General Ford Related Discussions


I purchased a 2008 Ford Fiesta Zetec S Diesel around five months ago but have noticed a problem with the air con. At first the air con diidn't work at all but we had it regassed and it now does blow cold air.


However the issue is that the air con only seems to blow cold air when I'm accelerating and as soon as I pull up to traffic lights or stop then there is no cold air at all. Then after pulling away the cold air starts blowing again.

Would appreciate any thoughts on what this could be?

Many Thanks



Are the blowers working without the air con?

Yes the blowers still work but no cold air comes out until I start moving.

very odd! when your sat idling, does the aircon light on the button flash, or turn off, or does it remain on? also, do you have the econetic model?

The air con light stays on. It's not the econetic model

sounds like its not really getting enough power to run the air con properly.


I would suggest your best bet is get Ford to have a look at it
