About Aircon Controller Units
The car's air conditioning system primarily conditions the air, which means whilst cooling the air in the car down, it also helps to ensure there isn't too much moisture in the car, so it stops the air getting too humid. The car's air conditioning unit also cleans the air in the car by filtering the dust and other particles from the air inside the car.
The Land Rover aircon controller unit controls when the car's air conditioning system is activated.
When you press the button on the aircon, the air conditioning will not activate until the Land Rover aircon controller unit tells it to. The car's main Electronic Control Unit (ECU) decides, from information provided by specialised sensors, the right time for the air conditioning to start working. The car's ECU will monitor various factors like the temperature of the car, the speed of the engine and the temperature of the engine coolant to check not only if the air conditioning is needed, but also if it is safe to start the aircon compressor which sets the whole process in motion. When all of the factors have been checked and assesed, the ECU will tell the Land Rover aircon controller unit, which is set to operate the heating and air conditioning system, to start cooling the car and the process will begin.
There are various symptoms that would indicate a new aircon controller unit is needed, ranging from the aircon not working at all to it working intermittently. If the air conditioning in your car is working but airflow is in only one direction, for example, it is blowing only towards your head or feet, it is likely to be a problem with the Land Rover aircon controller unit and you may need to buy a new one.
Land Rover trivia
- The Range Rover designer hated what he had made. Charles Spencer "Spen" King CBE, was focused solely on designing a large V8 engine, and then just drew a box around it to show where the engine would sit. It annoyed him for the rest of his life, and he insisted that he'd only put 0.1% of development time on the car shape. He also hated that they would be used for anything other than farming, saying, "...to use them in the school run, or even in towns and cities at all, is completely stupid."
- According to the film, Judge Dredd (1995), Land Rover will be the last ever car manufacturer in the world. The car company had a heavy presence in the film, and you can still see some film versions of the car driving around the UK.
- The designer Charles S. King worked with Rolls Royce to design jet engines before going on to build the Range Rover. King would go onto building a car around those jet engines that then held the world land speed record, the first turbine-powered vehicle to do so.
- Although the first Land Rover was designed in 1947 (by Maurice Wilks), the company wasn't actually founded until 1978!
- Most cars get an immediate redesign after the prototype is designed. Not with the Range Rover, however! The 1966 design was considered perfect as it was, which never happens in the automotive industry. The Range Rover is considered a work of art, and one of them is even on display in the Louvre.
