    May seem a silly question but here goes.....

    I recently bought a 2003 Classic Wave and the driver's control panel (you know, the the one that controls the partition, rear power, rear radio, intercom etc) has a button marked 'MOFLO'. I've tried pressing it but nothing seems too happen (apart from the button lighting up red!) - does anyone know what this button is for?

    Any hints appreciated.

    MFLO
    Some guesses:

    Mirrored fiber lights option
    Max Flow (booster for the AC)
    Mother Fu**er Low (drops the limo for that low rider look)

    I do not know, that is a tough one!!!

    Could it be a scratched MRLO - Moon Roof Lock Out?

    Rob et al,

    My 180" has an MFLO button -- steve is correct. It has to do with the rear AC. In our particular car this button must be turned to the off position in order to get the full force of AC to the passenger cabin. I still would like to hear from the anyone else that may know exactly what else this little button can do or is supposed to do, since this is my first car with this particular button. On the car when we purchased it is a sticker with "MFLO OFF FOR REAR AC".

    Could that be a switch for an electric solenoid valve that shuts off coolant from entering the heater cores, thus making the AC work harder to cool down? I know many people install the manual shut off valves, but flicking a switch to do it would be real neat.

    Limos with the Mastracon electrical systems the mflow button locks the ac/heat fan speed on medium setting.

    the mflow button locks the ac/heat fan speed on medium setting.
    Joel, Do you know the reason for this? I mean what is the use of it? I cannot think of a reason.

    Just wondering??

    1. stops the customers in the back from turning the a/c fan speed up and down.
    2. keeps the fan running at one constant speed.

    call mtg and ask them what is the purpose of this button.

    An A/C overide like that can either pre-cool the rear, or make the fans quieter when you're not moving too fast.

    Thanks to everyone for your help - having investigated further it seems that pushing it prevents the rear A/C fan being switched to the high setting (I seem to have only a two-speed fan motor - L or H - so on my car it switches the fan to low speed).

    Hardly the most useful feature in the world but I may use it one day now I know it's there!!!
