Air circulation function

16 posts in this topic

Hi all, 

previously owned a CLA and upon pressin the air circulation button, the air circulation would last 30mins before I have to press it once more.

Just got the W205 for a week and the air circulation function sometimes last only 5 to 10mins before auto off. Then sometimes, it would last 20 odd mins.

the air circulation time is way lesser than my previous ride.

anyone else facing the same issue? Appreciate any advice from the bros here. Thanks

Bought back to cycle & carriage and service agent tested the car but informed that through their computer test, the car is working fine. On their test, the car was able to have air circulation up to 20mins.

told them that when I drove, sometimes only 5 to 10mins, I was then advised to video this and send it to my agent ☹️

Dont feel like going to C&C to waste my time again. Elebest mentioned that they do not have programming code to turn on air circulation permanently.

any brothers here encounter this issue and went to a outside workshop and have it solved? Await any bro advice, thx

I don't know sir ..

i actually don't mind the fresh air. The filter is so effective that I don't usually smell anything. 

Breathing in recirculate air isn't a good idea.

thing is that when air circulation is off, fresh air in here is warm, increases AC workload.

Went to c&c on this topic, air recirculation depends on cabin temperature. They say new sw did not allow them to extend the duration of air recirculation for us. 

Will try to flip the mechanical vent to normally recirculating when warantee expire:)

In that case, did they give any suggestions? I.e set the air con to 18 degrees so the re-circulation stays on for 30 mins?

Not loving my W205's re-circulation either. Only lasts for 5-20 mins before turning itself off.

No suggestions. Top service from C&C. Ask me to record video of short duration of air circulation to prove to them 😂 thumbs up. Agent know about my problem but no follow up from him. Guess as much. Car already purchased service go down.

I will record a video to prove to them before I send in my car for this issue. Will update here on what they say when confronted with video evidence. Nothing to do on a Sunday anyway.

Likely they will say ok we upgrade the software for u. Make you go back and find that it doesn’t improve but to busy to send it back.  Just kidding

Managed to send my car in for a list of warranty issues, including the air recirculation function. The SA agrees that it should stay for 30 minutes as long as the outside temperature is sufficiently hot (the manual states more than 5 degrees C). He will be reflashing the software when I send in my car in June. Hope the issue goes away then.
