Hello everyone

Got a 2016 Outlaner Phev that i bought about 3 months ago and recently realised that my heater is not working.

Just wondering what are the most common issue that causes the heater not to work. and is there anyway i can fix it myself or do i need to take it to the dealer?

Currently the car has only done 40k mileage, is this covered under warranty?

Is that the heater using hot water from the ICE?

Or the electric heater?

Sediment in the coolant can block a filter in one of the heater hoses. Refer to your dealer, they will need to flush the system and replace the hose with the filter in it.

Seems to be a relatively common failure, judging by posts here and elsewhere. I had to have the AC condenser replaced very soon after I bought my 2½ year old pre-facelift model, so it was done FOC.

Thank you for replies guys

so i took the car to the dealer and after couple of hours of diagnostics they came back telling me that there was a blockage in the the pipe that feeds the heater and that this was caused by somebody mixing the wrong kind of coolant :-/.

They are charging me 700£ in total which includes the diagnostics (3hrs), flushing the coolant system and replacing one of the filters :(

Not a happy chap
