XF ventilation **SOLVED**

Recommended Posts

Would I be right in thinking that without air con, there is no ventilation available other than opening the windows?

I dont have my A/C on all the time and the climate control still ventilates the car without the need to have a window open.

As soon as you switch A/C off on my car there is no airflow through the vents. Ideas please?

i know it sounds obvious but have you tried turning the fans up using the manual control knob?

Yes but again, that's not the thrust of my argument.

Even with the vents open there is still no airflow unless AC is on.

That certainly doesn't sound right to me. I cant see why the vents  would close when you turn off  the A/C.  If you don't get a response from a fellow 2008 XF owner on the forum, I suggest calling the service dept of a Jag main dealer or a Jag indy and see if they will answer your question .

Thanks 🙂

I've had the car on diagnostics recently and there were no associated DTCs. Hoping to have a look at a colleague's car today and see what the difference is.

Hi Paul,

Just checked my 2011 XF-S with the same result as you describe. The middle button with the fan symbol, if pressed, turns off the entire system and closes the vents. Rotating the same button varies the fan speed but and puts the climate control into manual mode ("Auto" light goes off).

Also checked the manual, which says much the same.

I guess it's done to ensure airflow when stationary?

Cheers,
Jon

OK. Problem solved.

The cause?   The nut behind the wheel 😉

I misread the handbook and assumed that the "on / off" button on the climate page of the touchscreen controlled the A/C which, in fact it doesn't

Once I realized that the A/C button operated independently, the problem was solved.

Richard Head, my wife called me 😉

Thanks to all who offered advice 🙂

I've found that with fan at lowest speed you cannot really feel anything so press the airflow direction button or icon and click face and feet..you should feel it better then
