Thread: A/C turning on and off at will?

    Default A/C turning on and off at will?

    Hi there,

    Anyone have the problem with their 3 series (1998 318i in my case..), where suddenly the A/C just turns itself on? And then maybe you have it running...and it just turns itself off?

    I asked the mechanic and he said it's a common problem with the 3 series, and that it's the face plate that needs to be replaced and reprogrammed...to the cost of around $450.

    Any other similar experiences out there?

    Thanks!

    Same thing happens to my car. Randomly turns off. You can hear it blowing but no air at all. I just put the AC on MAX and it goes back to normal.
