2012 Volkswagen passat se ac blowing hot. Sign In

Hello I have a 2013 Volkswagen passat se. I recently installed a aftermarket Android os radio . I had no issues for weeks. Then one day my air conditioning stopped blowing cold air. It blows air just not cold. So I went and bought a brand atoto s8 for VW . It came with canbus. I was hoping that would fix the issue. But it did not. So I took my car to state college Volkswagen. They replaced the ac compressor, made sure everything under the hood was working correctly and filled. They said it's my control module in the car or it's the radio
I replaced the control module and still bo freaking cold air. Any help would be amazing.

Welcome. Kimmys, it's just not prudent nor realistically possible to take a "computer car" which this is and alter it without insane thought and engineering.

Not for novices best if you just don't! Old phart here, it you can't plug some new feature thing into a power port + leave the car alone you are playing with fire!

IDK how this related to A/C issues or what on earth was done to blame a compressor - that's a specialty all on its own almost never just replace just a compressor.

So, I suggest you go backwards and undo all this stuff back to OE (original equipment) ways car was built.

I suggest you find an "Auto electric" specialty shop also tech in the trade put this all back the way it was.

Other: I question if you needed A/C but not enough info why somebody thought something would work or was needed and handed it back not working I'm sure they were FREE or not capable of a proper diagnosis even if well meaning,
