I have a BMW 318i and today the aircon/heater came on by itself and has stayed on, even when the car is completely off.
I took it to an auto shop and the guy looked at the aircong flicked on/off all the buttons and said he would need to get it in for repair and I said I am concerned that if the car is turned off but the aircon is still running the car could run the battery flat or worse catch fire. He then said…its not on, and he was right he had turned it off.
I drove home knowing that I have had this car 10 years and its never done this before and it started up again. I parked my car and it was still running, so I decided to do what I saw him do and turn every button on and off. It seems to me to be an electric issue. This car always has its oil lght on as well.
Oh one last thing its nearly winter here and each day I drive the kids to school and the car seems to jut back and forth a bit when trying to drive. i can put my foot down on the pedal and and it takes a while for it to sbe responsive that it picks up speed. Could they be related?
Any ideas what/ how to fix it?
