I normally use AC during rains to clear up the windscreen. However sometimes the mist refuses to go away. A few seconds of hot air blasting usually solves that.


Another incident in Kerala, where I found the heater useful.
It was a wet day and my pant legs were sodden. I drove nearly 100kms with the heated air flowing to the legs, and the windows partially open to reduce the heat buildup. It was wonderful.

Default Re: Heater Not Working - Does it matter

The AC heater in my i10 seems to be faulty.

I normally keep the AC temperature control knob in the center and keep the AC button always switched on while driving. I keep the blower at 1st position. I always use the AC in re-circulation mode.

When I used the car yesterday, the AC seemed to be cooling more than usual. I moved the AC temperature control knob to higher temperature, but there was no change in cooling. AC temperature seems to be stuck at the lowest temperature setting irrespective of the position of the control knob.

What could be the problem ?

The car is otherwise behaving normally. Engine temperature gauge is in the normal center position.

Coolant was changed in the last service, 7-8 months back.

Update : As suspected, the Hyundai A.S.S. had filled insufficient quantity of coolant during my previous service, when I asked for coolant change.

In the next service, I got the coolant topped up. Now the AC heater is also behaving normally.
