I disconnected the car`s batter on my 56-plate mk3 tdci 130 and on reconnecting it, all 3 blower direction control buttons in a row now come on and stay on and also my A/C won`t come on. Someone said there`s a reset procedure by pressing the buttons in a certain way. Can anyone supply me with this procedure?


Big thanks!

Activation of self-diagnosis 

With the ignition switched on to position 2, on the E(A)TC module, PRESS the "OFF" and "FOOTWELL" buttons simultaneously very briefly, then PRESS "AUTO" within 1.5 seconds. The self-diagnosis which then starts lasts a few seconds. An animated display appears in the E(A)TC display during this time. Any faults found are displayed in the form of trouble codes. Example: First of all, "93" flashes for 2 seconds, then "42" flashes for 2 seconds - DTC 9342. If no faults are stored, then all of the segments in the display are actuated. Diagnosis mode can be stopped at any time by PRESSING any button on the E(A)TC module. Note: If the "DEFROST" button is pressed to end the diagnosis mode, all DTCs in the fault memory will be deleted!
