Thanks for the sympathy.

But the problem with the A/C auto-mode is that I did *not* adjust the fan speed. I adjusted the temp setting to a low temp (60F) on an 80F+ day which should make the fans roar, as you described.

Just as mysteriously, the problem went away the next day. I think that the ABS does not work in the rear, hence the rear brake lock-up.


: On our 2000 528, when the A/C is in "auto" mode and you manually adjust the fan speed, the fan is no longer on auto and the setting will remain where you left it, altho the rest of the system remains in "auto" mode. The fix for this is to press the "auto" mode button again.

: This is a nice feature that disables the annoying 747-like roar of the fan running full blast in a hot car set to "auto" mode.

: Can't help you on your brake lockup. Sorry about the door chip.

: -K.
