A/C Unit

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

This is perhaps a weird posting, but i've been reading RennTech forums for a couple years now, no one has brought this up, so I finally broke down to write this question.

Whenever I manually adjust my a/c-heating...the display shows Manuell. I'm assuming it should say MANUAL...but it doesn't...it says MANUELL. Can I change this? Not like it's cooling in espanol or anything like that...but it just kinda always left me scratching my head. Anything outside of sarcasm would be appreciated. Oh, forget it...I'll take sarcasm too!

Oh, if it makes any difference it's a 1999 Boxster.

The a/c display is a modfied Audi unit. If you ever had one out of the car it even has an Audi logo on the back. If you put in the LCD from an Audi then MANUELL is gone and you see man instead. http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?s...5193&hl=lcd

This question has been asked so many times in the 8 years I have been Boxstering, with so many stories, that I finally asked the question on a German Boxster board last year. http://www.staunet.de/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=3230

I hope the link to the German board works and you can see the pictures and rsponses to my questions.

MANUELL is the German word for manually operated. But the left side of the display has the word OF f, or off. But the German word for off is aus.

So the left side of the display is in English and the right side in German. Or, as they said on the German board, Germish.

Thanks very much for your replies...or only helpful reply (Tool Pants)...it seems like you had the very same question yourself. It's a shame that there's no easy fix, like pressing both plus and minus buttons at the same time while pressing Auto and turning the ignition halfway while leaving the car in neutral rolling down a hill backwards. I'll just have to live with the ongoing confusion of figuring out why I did something manually and it's telling me that I just did something manually. Very interesting...I guess it's just like how with the tiptronic version when you put the car into drive the little 'D' is highlighted on the console and when you put the car into manual the little 'M' is highlighted. I wonder, what's German for 'M'?
