    Hi,
    I recently just got my f12 had notice sometimes my climate control goes crazy the aircon vents opens in different places even when you set it to the standard facing you mode.
    Does anyone have the same issue?
    Btw everything goes back to normal if you switch off the car after a couple of minutes.

    Yes had the same a couple of times last summer. Aircon vents keep blowing in the footwell even when the switch is set for airvent to blow in other directions. As you say, it goes back to normal when you switch off the engine and start it again hence appears to be a software rather than mechanical issue? Will get it checked at next service.

    This is not just confined to Ferrari - my BMW did something similar once in very hot and humid weather and all the vents stuck closed. I wonder if it’s related to a de-icing sensor/programme which then affects the vents and gets stuck - it was so bad we drove to the BMW dealer straight away. On restart - guess what - nice cold air...

    This happened on an F430 I owned, switch on and off tended to fix it short term, A hard reset (disconnect) battery worked better and made the problem go away, eventually though I had to replace the control module...

    Try doing a battery reset, cost nothing, there is a fast release next to the battery so really easy, but there is a reset procedure which includes blowing cold air to one side of the car and hot to the other then a swap so the car can learn the dual climate control (hope that makes sense) , loads of threads on how to do this, not hard, nothing to lose.

    I had an issue a few times that just appeared then also disappeared after a day. The air con in my F12 got stuck to hot mode and on, I couldn't turn it off or change the temperature. On that day, when it was warm outside and I wanted cool air con, it was pretty annoying. I'm not sure what caused it.

    When I bought a Cali T [ same era as F12 ] it had problems regulating the air-con, the dealer rest it it somehow and its been fine ever since.
