yes it is, just like mine, it'll be the blend door motor on the heater box. $160 for the part and labour is up to the back yardie you get to fix it.

PRess your off button and the bottom right button (inside the flip down door) to perform this calibration.

Error codes will flash up if you have any problem!

you can sort of get an idea if your thermostat is stuck open by having a look at your temp gauge. If it is constantly cold it means that there is always water running fully through it and therefore not allowing the engine to heat up. Also because my engine was never heating up the fuel mixture was always rich because the computer thought it was cold and therefore it costed me more in petrol.

hope it helps, Cheers again

nope, gave that job away as a big joke, work 60 hrs a week and only get paid for 38 hrs doesn't make financial sense to me.
