Sorry Aaron - wasnt very clear i know. You said it warmed up 3 minutes quicker than normal, wondered if normally took 15 mins say and with heater on it was say 12, or maybe normally 7 min and with heaters on 4 say. You covered it nicely for me last post As you said, as long as everything is working properly, they warm up nice and quickly compared with some. That heated up to full temp in a mile is better than i've had in winter nd probably shows I need to recheck things. Actually feels slower to warm up now than when I had the main stat out. Still much faster than vw...but many vw have fbh - lovely...
Or not use hfw/hrw so much.

Good luck with the Passat. Which engine does your new one have? All versions easier for your Dad I should think, almost unstallable if diesel.

Hope youll still drop by here from time to time..

Clau, perhaps heaters already being enabled is not so unlikely, as they are last in the queue for electricity and you had to fit the pins in the socket there isnt really a penalty for pcm. Let's hope so!

Purple, is this going in your new car? Looking forward to hearing how it went um when u have time etc...headlamp bulbs...but this is so much more interesting.....I still have the ex-MB van eber i bought when i had my first galaxy. Replaced car with higher spec one that already had the heater fitted, never got round to fixing it... so i've still not had neighbours telling me car's on fire...

The other replies you've had or will get are from people who know a lot more about this stuff than I do.  Treat what I post as something along the lines of intending to prompt "it won't be that, but I wonder if"  thoughts rather than informed advice. I know I do - treat my own thoughts that way I mean.

Oldbod, the ids showed that everything is ok, no faults and no errors. There was only 2 failed positions: i don't have electric heated rear seats and i don't have automatic transmision. And everything else was ok. In this morning worked ok. 0 degrees and in 2 km started to get warmer. So i suppose it is ok. Just have to check the relays with the clamp meter and it will be done. ;)

Drive safely, girls prefer you in one piece!

Thanks Clau. Glad it's working for you. Those clamp meters are great arent they, much quicker to use. But if you're getting heat after 1.5 km in your climate guess that's the important thing. :-).

Quick look your temperatures today about the same as where i am. Have to see if my car arms up in that distance. Btw - do you have a working egr or is it blanked?

So it's done. Tested the heater with the elm327 and forscan. Work like a charm and no programing needed.
Sorry that it took me so long to respond but i had some problems: first of all, a guy smash my rear bumper of my car and then i had some oil engine leaks. I will post some pictures this weekend. Cheers! ;)

Hi, 

Can you make the guide as you told a few times.

I am interested in retrofitting auxiliary heater to my mondeo.

Are you asking about the electric heater that uses 3 glowplugs or the diesel

fired heater?

Actually i am interested in both to retrofit
But this topic is for heater with 3 glowplugs.
If you can share some guides for both it will be best.
