Solved: How to fix uneven air conditioning temperatures in a Range Rover Vogue
Air conditioning is a feature you won’t want your Range Rover to be without. But what happens when it’s not working as it should?
Sure, it keeps you cool when the weather is warm. But it also helps to keep you warm during the winter. And it’s a key safety system to ensure your windows don’t fog up.
If your air-con isn’t working as it should, it leaves you with more problems than being too hot in your car. Without it, you risk visibility issues, placing you and your passengers at risk.
This is why Mr C rang us at Garden City Garage. We are Land Rover specialists.
His air conditioning system wasn’t working correctly. The passenger side of his vehicle was blowing out freezing air, while the driver’s side was warm.
This is far from ideal, especially as the summer months are rolling in.
During the initial inspection, our Land Rover specialists confirmed the issue by testing the air-con system and performing a visual check.
As no error or warning codes were showing on the Range Rover Vogue’s dashboard, our specialists knew to delve deeper.
Using their in-depth knowledge and the manufacturer information (TOPIX), our Land Rover specialists performed a thorough system check.
Checking the air conditioning gas levels is one of the first possible causes of the problem. It’s pretty common for refrigerant gas to need a refill.
However, the gas levels returned within range for the vehicle model, confirming it wasn’t a regas the Range Rover needed.
With optimal gas levels and no fault codes, it left our specialist technicians suspecting the vehicle had a deeper issue.
At Garden City Garage, we use a 15 step diagnostic process to guarantee your Land Rover’s fault is solved the first time. The in-depth analysis helps us spot issues other garages might miss, preventing small problems from developing into major faults.
Our 15 step analysis led our Land Rover experts to believe there was a software issue causing the air-con temperature imbalance.
Like any modern vehicle, the Range Rover Vogue’s internal systems use software to keep everything functioning optimally. Mr C’s Range Rover Vogue uses a complex climate control system to manage the ambient temperature of the vehicle.
Over time the software can become outdated and needs updating. Failing to update the software can leave your vehicle running with inefficient systems.
Simply servicing or regassing the air con wouldn’t fix a software issue. This is something other garages might have overlooked.
Fortunately for Mr C, our Land Rover experts have decades of experience dealing with the brand and knew what to do next.
As our Land Rover specialists suspected the Vogue’s climate system needed a software update, they used the manufacturer information to confirm their suspicion.
