Default 06' Audi A3 A/C Is On But No Air Flow

So when you start the car, the a/c works perfectly. But after a couple of minutes its starts to slow down until there is nothing coming out of the vents. Everything is still on but no air is coming out. Please help, thank you

You can overwrite the "auto" function by pressing the + symbol for the fans to kick in. Do you get any air when the bars all are maxed out while "auto" is not activated?

I never thought of that, I usually just press auto. Thank you for the tip, I'm gonna try it. Should I start the a/c by using the + first ?

So sounds like you pressed the + button until the red bars on the climate control unit were all filled out? If that's the case something is certainly wrong with the blower motor or the control unit itself. When you manually press "+" multiple times fans will kick in, regardless of the temperature settings, so if the fans still won't run there is a fault that is not sensor related. Try using the ECON button as well (if active, it disabled the air conditioning) but it doesn't sound like that will do you any good.

I would check the HVAC unit (also known as climate control unit) as well as the blower motor itself for faults. I would probably start with the blower motor if it were me.
