No heat

Hi, lately there is coming no heat from my FFE 2013

When I start the car and drives the current draw reads 5kw+ and doesn't go down during the drive.

Had it at the dealer and they said it was 99% sure it was the epcu that needed to be changed. That doesn't really sound logical to me, so I just thought that i would try here if others have had the same experience/issue

Re: No heat

I would first try to make sure all the air is purged from the heating loop. If you have a laptop you can manually force coolant pumps on and open the diverter valves. Just don't have the pumps on 100 or you may cause cavitation which will only create more problems. You can do this with forscan and a laptop or I'm sure your dealer could probably do this too.

Re: No heat

I believe you want to set the diverters to the midpoint, around zero degrees.
