I have noticed that it doesn't always do what it should when I press buttons, and I have got it to behave, eventually, by pressing the AUTO button several times. Why that should be, I have no idea. Anyway, the suggestion is to try pressing the AUTO button multiple times, to see whether the heat pump responds.
Could be a cheap fix
Thanks for the advice. I tried it today but unfortunately it did not work.
On a different note.. My backhatch failed to open when the handle /button was actuated, starting this last Friday afternoon (nothing from the key fob either).
I finally had some time to inspect it today and tore a bit of the car apart trying to find the fault. Turned out to be a broken wire between the hatch and the rest of the chassis. Almost a perfect looking cut.
Could someone please let me know how to include images directly in my post? I'd like to post it in the the technical category under a separate thread. Did some checking and looks like a few others with gasoline powered Souls have had similar issues.
