Hello all,

I noticed the other day that my new 2.5TDi T4 multivan has a diesel pre-heater. Does anyone know if it is possible to use the pre-heater as a night heater?

Hi,

Does your cabin heat up really quickly on cold days?
If it has one you should be able to see the exhaust which exits under the nearside front bumper.

It only comes on when the engine is on and the ambient air temperature is below a pre-determined temperature (10 degrees I think). It then goes off once the engine is up to temp. It is meant to help with engine wear as it minimises cold running times and means your interior heats up quicker.

How well is it working, been looking at the instructions but not got round to it yet.
Are you using a leisure battery or just the main battery?

Here are some links to threads about this.

I like the sound of that too. Sounds like it might be simpler than the work around to get remote control.

Here are the links I have found so far.#
