RE: Audi 500CSQ climate control problem

Prolly a disagreement between the two outside ambient air thermometers.
A/C won't come on unless the A/C brain deems it hot enough, as measured
by two agreeing sensors. One is prolly brain-dead, confusing the A/C
brain. Bentley has diags procedures to tell what each thinks the temp
is, one'll prolly be smoking dope. HTH.
