Hi All,

EL Ghia Climate Control - when accelerating, no matter what mode is displayed on the screen, it goes to windscreen...when decelerating it goes back to whatever mode was displayed. Can't help think it is a vacuum inspired problem - has anyone had symptoms like this with their EF / EL Climate setups ?

Also noticed less braking performance when cruising slowly with fan speed up say to 5 onwards. Dodgy booster perhaps - I am thinking vac related again.

Any help appreciated :)

Steve

Is it seeing boost instead of vacuum, maybe fit a one way valve to stop the cc seeing boost?. It gets the signal from the manifold to operate, so it could be the problem.

The one way vaccum valve behind the washer bottle is probably f**k.

My thoughts with this - thanks for the confirmation...I knew commos had these one-way valves...didn't know ours had them too.

Shall look into new one :)
