    A/C Turning Off

    Not sure if anyone else has noticed this but anytime I press the off button on the front cluster for the climate control it automatically turns the air conditioning off. Meaning that next time i go to turn my fan speed back up I have to go into cue's climate controls and press the A/C function "On" in cue. Would be nice if A/C was always on everytime I turned my fan speed back up.

    Don't use the off button, or try hitting it a second time to bring the A/C compressor back on. Or just change the temperature if the airflow becomes too much.

    Yes! I don't understand why the A/C function turns off each time we turn off the air! It's easy to forget that we have to turn it on each and every time. And also why air blows so strong when the AC/heater are off. Grrr.

    I run in "Auto" mode almost exclusively and as ral1960 suggests, i just adjust the temperature setting up or down.

    Or just do what ral1960 says. Just hit the "off" button again to turn it back on.

    Why would you want the A/C on with the fan off ? That would keep cycling the compressor and possibly freeze the evap coil. As suggested just raise the temp, and allow the thermostat to control the system.

    Re: A/C Turning Off

    I agree with the AUTO mode suggestion and just changing the temp. However, if I wish to use my Platinum's sunroof, I certainly do not wish to use A/C to "cool" the outside air. So, obviously I turn it off. However, if the outside air is lower than my temp setting, I certainly do not wish to "heat" the outside air either. There is nothing in the manual to show how to turn the "heater" off. Would turning the A/C off also prevent the "heater" to start. And yes, I can see someone wants some heat in the car if it is not that warm outside, but why not in that case close the sunroof? So, unless turning A/C off also turns the heater off, how does one turn the heater off? (other than reducing the temp to well below the outside temp and of course A/C off)

    Re: A/C Turning Off

    I will point out that the car is heating the outside air regardless of if the heater is on or not. Unlike the A/C, which requires power from the engine, the heat comes from waste engine heat. If it's' not heating the air inside the car, then it's using the radiator to heat the air flowing though the engine compartment. Bottom line is that it doesn't waste gas to heat the outside air, just to cool it.

    If you don't want to feel the warm air blowing on you, just turn off the fan.

    Thanks for your reply. Makes sense, one is never too old to learn more.
