    Doubt about using climatronic with factory fitted Auxiliary heater: webasto

    Hi All,

    I am from Finland and new to this forum. I bought a used 2013 December registered VW Passat. I guess it is a 2014 model. Our car came with factory fitted webasto. Our car also features climatronic. I have noticed that if switch off the climatronic before shutting down the car, the internal heating (air vents does not come on) does not happen when the webasto is activated. But if I leave the air vents or climatronic on, then the air vents come on when the webasto is running. I am also confused about using the climatronic in auto mode as I have felt that only the windshield air vent and the side air vents are on while the air does not come through the central vents in auto mode.

    This is the first time I am with a Volkswagen. I appreciate all your time and efforts.

    In the UK we have absolutely no experience with these systems but it is closely computer controlled and so if you think it has a problem the first logical step would be a full vehicle fault code read using a capable system such as VCDS or the VAG system ODIS.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
