Disable AC Auto-On

Mon May 11, 2015 9:53 am

Does any body know how to disable the Auto-on feature for the AC and fan? If I want it on, I'll turn it on.

Is there also a way to keep the drive mode in the mode you left it in or set the default start mode?

Thanks.

No. One of the more irritating features.

I did some coding and now the whole HVAC doesn't come on automatically at all, I need to look further into this. I would like the HVAC to come on, and remember my last setting, but not necessarily the AC. I would have to look at my coding notes to see if I used the one you mentioned here, I'll check into it, thanks.

with this setting nothing on the A/C comes on automatically which is the way i want it (if i want the heating /cooling running il switch it on)

Hmmm... strange. The only part that comes on automatically on my car is the fan. If I didn't have the A/C or AUTO buttons activated when I shut down, they are not activated when I start.

I do notice a shut down prompt about "comfort mode" or something like that, but I have not checked that box.

If you turn off the AC by pushing the buttons....AC and the on button, it won't come back on when you restart the car but not sure about the next day tho, the fan does come on that i know of.

There may be some practical reasons for the fan to come on regardless...removing stale air in the vehicle, as part of a safety requirement.
