    Driving home last night I discovered that my heater was not heating . The AC works fine. The fan works fine , just no heat. Where is the heater valve located ? Any other tips? Where could I find a repair manual or CD ? Any info would be appreciated.

    No need to reply. It appears that the STOP button controls the climate control. It must be in the upper or RUN position for the AC and/ or heater to operate. I thought the OFF button just turned the AC compressor off . I was wrong. Oh well, it was fun pulling the trunk liner out and seeing all of the hidden
    pieces under it.
    Once again, I could sure use an owners manual. Anybody know where I could find one? It would be nice to have a list of all of the fuses and relays.
    Thanks Again,
    Tom

  8. For what it's worth, the owners manual is somewhat confusing as well. I never liked pushing the "Stop" button to turn on the AC!!! I also don't like pushing the "Stop" button to turn the heater on!!! Go figure. At least if the heater or AC is already on, it's easy to figure out how to "Stop" it! -JC

    Maybe Ferrari learned from Microsoft - when you want to stop Windows you have to push the start button!!!

    er...you don't push stop to turn A/C or anything else on! Come on, even ferrari aren't that crafty. Don't confuse the "recirc" button with stop.

    Stop does what it says....everything stops...no A/C, no heat. A/C works with or without recirc, but it works best if using recirc as it re cools the cool air as opposed to cooling fresh air.

    That's not the STOP button - its the Set To On Position button ;)
