Hi Steve,

Re air con I'm pretty sure you can just have the fans on without any air con/climate as such. Just press the AC button so the light goes out, then adjust the temp and fan speed to suit.

You and Dave/Wile7 have find after a bit more ownership that the air con packs in. Not being depressing, but it's happened to me and a lot of other Vel Owners, and the fix may be as simple as cleaning the internal temperature sensor near the rear view mirror, or it may need a new condensor or rheostat/thermostat, or just a re-gas. Just mentioning in case yours goes at any point...
