First, let me say this site has helped tremendously so far. Thank you!
I purchased my first BMW ,a 97 540iA, last month. I read through the owner's manual as well as the radio/OBC manual and found that there was what I perceive to be a contradiction. In the owner's manual, it explains that the parking ventilation feature that cools the car down is controlled by Timer 1 and Timer 2 in the clock section of the OBC. In the OBC manual, the same Timer 1 and 2 are said to control the auxiliary heater, which only functions at temperatures below 69F? Could both of these statements be true, dependent upon ambient temperatures, where the ventilation comes on above 70F and the aux heater comes on below 69F?
Any help with understanding this is greatly appreciated.
