Air conditioner

Yesterday being the hottest day of the year, my ac decided to not work. It was working perfectly fine until I turned off the car for 10 mins. After returning, the fan came on, but the ac light would not. If I press or held on the ac button, the light comes on, but no cool air. I've tried turning off the fan etc. I had to turn off the car for a minute and then restarted the car and the ac worked again. Did this happen to anyone?

I called the Audi service dept, and they suggest bringing the car in since they have no clue what it may be unless they took a look at it. I hope it's still under warranty since it's only 10 months since I bought it.

Hope they get to the bottom of it pretty quick ... there are a half-dozen reasons why this could happen - to hard to diagnose over the net -

Do I have to pay for the diagnosis and/or repair? I bought the car at the end of sept 2015, and have almost 14k mikes. I'm not going to the dealership that I bought it from though.

READ your warranty info - yes, it's prolly a warranty fix at ANY Audi dealer ...

They only said that was the part that's causing the problem. Didn't say what was wrong with it.

Yup, it was covered under the warranty. Should've asked what it would cost if out of warranty.

My AC has also failed. Taking the car in on Monday morning, will report back if it's the same - or a different - problem.
