Re:previous repair ted russell invoice # F1cs560238 dated: 1/19/2007 malfunctions that started February 28, 2007 are same as previously stated in referenced invoice as follows: 1)climate control blows hot air while on fresh air and ac 2)coolant light comes on; this usually happens with the malfunction of the ac control system referenced above. I can stop the car, turn everything off and in 15 seconds restart and light goes off. The coolant light will stay off as long as I keep the climate control off however; when driving for a distance (I.e. 30 miles) and then multiple start / stops in traffic the light will come on if I am running the climate control. Until the recent malfunction of the climate control Wednesday night (2/28/07) this coolant light has not come on since last repair to climate control. For information, the conditions outside were approximately 66 F. obviously I am upset with the continued problems I am having after this vehicle spent one week in your shop for previous repairs for the same malfunctions. Additionally, I am extremely dissatisfied with the recommended repairs made by ted russell qualified professionals as discussed with you during my phone conversation yesterday.
