I get into my car this morning and I notice that my air vents will not change from zone to zone. Great! Air only comes from the dash(mid) zone. Oh, and the temp will not change now eather. I am hopeing this is just a fuse, but if it is not anyone know what I should look for? Thanks for any help.

That sounds like one of the random things that the dealer can fix with a software update under warranty. It seems strange to me that software updates fix things that go bad over time, but that's what they claimed to have done for me on a couple things.

In easy terms to understand why do PC's crash more than Macs <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> haha<p>Over time the modules tweak out because what they are being told in certain circumstances isnt correct. All volvo does is go back and find all the bugs they missed and fix them. We get updates regularly i just wish they told us exactly what they do and not so much that they MAY correct the problem.
