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 Vauxhall 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 Vauxhall 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 Vauxhall 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 Vauxhall aircon controller unit and you may need to buy a new one.
- The Vauxhall Vectra was the last car they ever produced in Luton, and it went on to become one of their most poorly reviewed vehicles. Top Gear even put the '95 Vectra on their list of the worst cars of the last 20 years (Clarkson wouldn't even drive it!).
- The colour yellow that Vauxhall uses on its cars is named 'Maddox Yellow,' after pensioner Richard Maddox had his Corsa vandalised. Residents of the small village of Arlington where Maddox lived thought the car and the colour were ugly!
- They might be famous for their cars, but Vauxhall also has the claim to fame of being in the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest GPS drawing! The 6080-mile Halloween art made national news!
- The Lotus Elise might seem like a far way away from the average Vauxhall, but they do have some matching parts. Alright, so it's nothing engine wise, but the Corsa does have the same indicator and wiper stalks that can be found on the Series 2 Lotus Elise.
- If you thought you were seeing mostly grey Vauxhalls on the road, your eyes aren't going funny. It's the most popular colour for Vauxhall cars.
