Hi, was wondering if anyone knew what this problem would be. I have a 2001 jetta 1.8t wolfsberg that i bought used a couple years ago.

the vents only blow hot air. even with the air conditioner on. The car seems to run fine besides that.

any thoughts, ideas, fixes?

something i need to take to my mechanic?

thanks in advance

would this be an A/C problem if hot air is coming from it when everything is off and the setting set to cold?

for example, if i were to have the vents set to blowing cold air, with the a/c off, shouldn't it just blow air from the outside into the car?

it sounds like your hot/cold temp selector is broken.

when on vent mode, "blowing cold air until the engine warms up" sounds like the selector is stuck on hot, and the vented air is being routed over the heater core (through which the engine coolant passes).

could be a broken selector cable, but i'm betting it is something related to the selector.
