Hi all,
I have recently brought a 2008 2.0 tdci titanium, but the air con switch stays illuminated all of the time. It will only go off if the fan switch is in the off position. Any help would be much appreciated.
Cheers Davemav

So if you move the swich to feet before youstart the car it still stays on?

Could be a faulty switch stuck on

From memory, that's how it works. I don't think it's faulty.
Unfortunately I am away from my car at the moment to be able to check.

If the Slector is set to Screen , then Aircon Auto turns on , moved down to Screen and feet and it will not auto start.

I think he is saying it will not turn off at all.

If it doesn't go off at all then I'd suspect a duff switch panel.
They are readily available on eBay for a reasonable price.

Correction, having checked, yes you can and should be able to tun it off with the illuminated air-con button as others have said.

Job done sir. :)
Did you find it a faff to swap over?
I'm about to swap my panel over to one with different light colours and a bit concerned about disconnecting control cables.

it was pretty straight forward, a little fiddly getting retaining clip for cable off. All in all a nice job to do.

Ideal, i have my trusty Haynes but sometimes they're a bit vague on intermediate steps.
I have a Blue LED converted AC panel and rear window heater switch waiting to go in, just need to find the time now :D
