Outside air-flap, yes, climate control again
I would like to know under what conditions the outside air-flap opens ?
My recent '91 100 (regular) seem to have it's air-flap closed all the time
and I'm having defrost problem in really cold weather.
If I pulled it open, and when I hit OFF on the climate control, the flap closes
properly. However, I have yet to see the thing opens on its own (mind you the
temperature here have been mostly under freezing).
So, is there a test code I can read from the control unit to see if the
flap is working as it's supposed to ? Also, how to check the inside temperature
sensor ? I have a feeling if the temperature sensor isn't working, the air-
flap may not open on its own.
The car is still under Audi's 1 year warranty and 2 year drive train warranty,
so I want to demontrate to the dealer the thing is not working properly before
they give me that "it works fine" answer.
