My 1st post on this Forum so please be gentile. I have owned my E36, 97 M3 Coupe since 2000, It has been the best Car ever. I'll post some Pics as soon as I figure out how. I think about buying something newer, but I still enjoy driving this one so I'll keep it for a while. With 180k miles on it, it's starting to have a few issues. Clear Coat is peeling off now, Leather is really worn, etc. I just replaced the Aux Fan (VDO from Pelican Parts, was cheaper than the non-OEM after market one) and that works fine, but no matter what I set my Climate Control temp to, the Compressor never cycles off (Recirculate Button on or off), it stays engaged constantly as long as the A/C (Snowflake) button is on. If I manually turn it off, it does shut off the Compressor. It seems like the inside Temp sensor is not detecting the Temp so it never cycles, just keeps pumping out Cold air as if I have the Climate Control set to Meat Locker. It never freezes up or stops working, but it Summer in Georgia, so. Ideas?
Also, is the Aux Fan supposed to run anytime the A/C is on (regardless of Engine temp)? I'd think it would deactivate above a set Road speed because it really isn't needed above 30-40 mph.
