Default Air Conditioner Issues

Hi All. I have a 2005 A6 and its air conditioner has been on the blink for a while now.(Blows only hot air)

After the diagnostics,(excerpt below) I changed the A/C Pressure Temp sensor. This did not solve the problem as the air conditioner is still not working.

Can anyone help?

Many thanks

First of all: exuse my english, i hope you understand what i mean....

In front of the torpedo wall (is that the english name? the wall between the engine and compartment) it is a plastic-cover, also covering windscreen wipers.

Remove that.

Underneath, on the right side of the big box in center (might be left side if you have right hand steering) there is a magnetic valve with 2 "bulbs" sticking up (the magnets).

There is a known issue that this valve clogs with saw-offs from the engine, leaving you with only hot air, or in my case: hot air in the side and defrost vents, and cold air in center.

There is a new valve with the same part number, only ending with a B to fix the issue, however it MIGHT help with a good flush of the cooling system, and removing the 2 "bulbs" and clean it out...

Did the fault code dissapear after changing the sensor?

I have the same problem (same diagnostics and A/C not cooling). I have also changed the pressure/temp sender (G395) but I still got the same fault code. I have checked that the sensor gets 12V and ground but it could offcourse be the third wire (the LIN-bus data wire) that is broken between the sensor and the climatronic control module (J255). I am going to check this as a next step unless anyone have a better suggestion.

Best regards
Morten

Problem Solved. The temp sensor wire runs by the radiator. The heat had made it hot and brittle causing it to crack.

Have since re routed and replaced it.

Same here.
It was the LIN-BUS data wire broken somewhere between the sensor and the control unit.

Hi!

New member here, and I am getting this code on my 5 year old C6A6 - and the air isn't running cold. Just had a look under the bonnet but I am not sure where this sensor will be to check the wiring.

Can someone let me know where it is, and where the wires run to?

Cheers
James
