(Solved) Mercedes aircon blowing hot on driver side, thermotronic 4 zone


I have now had two duovalves replaced under warranty, the second as the first was replaced under warranty and now the warranty has expired, but now the dealer says the Actuator motor is faulty and needs replacing, how does this affect the airflow, where is it located and is £1300 for the part and 8 hours labour reasonable. What would a good Indy charge for this to be replaced?


So after agreeing to goodwill at 51% and booking the car in, the dealers have had it for 5 days and still can't fix the drivers side blowing hot and the rest of the car cold. It wasn't the stepper motor or the control unit behind the dash, they are currently looking at the heater box, but can't find any messages in STAR DIAGNOSIS.



Finally all resolved, was the stepper motor, as they had previously thought, but had to use trial and error to find the right one. So after 7 days it's all working as it should. Just goes to show that good old fashioned logic can work if your ignore the diagnostic software and go with your gut. Having some help from the forum and having a little understand from the WIS, helped me point the dealer to keep trying the motors. Final price was £650, as I got 51% goodwill and also a further 6% discount.


The use of a 2015 facelift c250 premium plus estate for the 7 days was nice too!

Read sirius 32 on 2000 clio 1.4 with Fgtech galletto and TL866

Car model: 

2000 clio 1.4



immo issues


What I tried to do: 

read a sirius 32


Tool I tried to use: 

I tried with galletto 1260 but some how it doesnt read, I also have fvdi and xprog.


Working solution:

You just desolder the 29f and you read it on the bench, open ECU and read AM29F200BB with programmer(Fgtech galletto, TL866 Minipro programmer and willem). 


Tools reviews on: Fgtech galletto, TL866 Minipro programmer and willem

Fgtech Galletto Reviews:

Read it with galletto on boot mode flash. 


PS: I ordered FGTECH Galletto for €45 + shipping, details at: 


TL866 Minipro programmer reviews

If you are planning to work frequently on those ECU I recommend to buy TL866 Minipro programmer.

With tsop44 adapter, this tool is very stable for reading F200 flash fitted on Sirius32

TL866 Minipro programmer adapter list for reference: 


Willem Reviews:

willem is also very good old programmer, I use one from 10 years, it is very good for many eprom and flash used in many ECU's and it's very cheap...
