    I have the following error code from the AC module of my 2008 BMW 328xi:

    What does this code mean? My AC seems to be working fine as far as I can tell.
    Thanks,

    This fault is for the front stratification adjuster. Are you having any problems with your climate control?

    No issues as far as I can see - I can blow cold and hot air out of all the vents and all the climate controls seem to work fine. I'd say maybe the cold air isn't quite as cold as I'd like but the AC on this car has never been that strong.

    A shop did say they saw the code a while back and it went away after they cleared it; however, it seems to be back for good this time.

    I'll probably just get it looked at along with Inspection I when that time comes if it doesn't seem like anything urgent.

    If everything is working properly I would just leave it alone. It could be a issue with the stratification switch but if it's not effecting anything then I wouldn't worry about it.
