Auto Climate control is out to lunch!

OK, so this is the first warm day I have had since getting my CX3 and it needed AC to cool things down after baking in the sun. But guess what? It doesn't work. Strange thing is I have been using AC in conjunction with the window de-misting function all winter. The only way I can now get the AC to work at all is to crank the temperature control fully counter-clockwise and it gives a forced cooling mode. But if the control is off the full blast position, it will not work at all.

Any ideas?

I'll look to see if it can be initialized later. Mine worked well in the few warm days we had after buying the car.

Thanks guys. No I am sure the condenser is working fine because it produces lots of cold air when the temp control is fully counter-clockwise. I am pretty sure the problem is with the climate control system - maybe a faulty electronic component.

Sigh! I guess a visit to my dealer is immanent.
