Hello all. I've got a FFE 2017 that I generally have no problems with.
However, whenever the car is 'out in the heat' for a while, the air conditioner becomes really unreliable. For example, entering the car after its been sitting out in 26degC+ (80degF+) weather is a guarantee for the AC to be fully functional for maybe 5 minutes, before starting to blow hotter and hotter air.
At this point, I might as well turn on the heater; the air from the vents is that hot.
Sometimes, fully rebooting the car or letting it sit for a little while causes the AC to be functional again, for around the same amount of time.
Has anyone else experienced this? Is this something to do with cooling of the batteries?
I thought about going to the dealership, but my confidence in them being able to diagnose properly is... slim. Also, whenever the weather is calmer, the AC works perfectly fine. Any cooler and it is freezing cold.
hi, a newbie from Montreal:)
I had a similar problem with AC. In fact, that's irritating, when there's no escape from the heat and you have to stay in the car for a long time, long trips become unbearable, understand u, man
