The heating fan in the climate control unit is unstable. Sometimes it's hot, sometimes not, sometimes on high speed, or low, or turns itself off. The problem persists even when the control panel is removed (radio/clock/air conditioning etc).

Sorry we don not have any onformation on your vehicle but I believe it should be equipped with self diagnostics. Check for trouble codes with a scan tool to see if you come up wih anything.

SEAT uses a semi-conductor controlled final stage to vary the fan speed, it may be the culprit in this scenario.

I'll ask my mechanic check. The self diagnostics reports nothing wrong - which is consistent with the observation that the blower continues to behave erratically after the controller panel is removed.
