I change the thermostat today on my Supercharged V6 VS Statesman as it was sitting on the cold mark for last couple of months and now it sits on the 1/4 mark but the climate control is still blowing cold at 25 degrees is there a way to adjust the climate control to adapt or do i just have to leave it at a higher temp to keep warm?
Thanks for any help!

Also make sure the radiator fan isn't coming on too early and not giving the car a chance to warm up.

VS Commodores have a habit of getting an air lock in the heater system, not allowing the coolant to circulate to the unit, try emptying the system then refilling it slowly while the motor is running and is warm/hot with the heater turned on. Good luck!

Changed heater tap and not leaking but still cold when under 27 degrees so i will give that a go tommorow!

Fan is not coming on til half way up the temp gauge, so don't think it's that.
Thanks for the help.
