Economy Gauge

The economy gauge is going onto max when idling and is not doing what it should all of a sudden. Advice?
Thanks Peter

Any other symptoms or gauges not working? Did you notice anything happen in between working and not working?

No all others are okay. Noticed that the aircon make it change back to normal for a moment or two. Its moving around slowly.

Just had a listen to it and it sounds like its sucking air. Even after it heats up.

The car came from a very dry climate into a very humid and wet climat.
I think thats why this is happening.
Also the drivers door will not unlock now.
