When i shut the heating/ac system off, and it is colder outside (<60), warm (heated) air flows out the vents. if i turn on the recirc light, the air flow stops. So, my question is....shouldn't the air flow from the vents be outside air-unheated??? or is this a minor irritation?? I think if i turn on the heat, then adjust the temp to low, then turn heat off off...well then the air flow from the vents is cool.

any thoughts??

thanks!!!

If I understand you correctly, if you are gettin warmer air than the outside temp then you need to turn your temperature reading down, if the outside temp is 60 and your temperature is set at 70 then the air vents will blow at 70. What may be confusing is that although you are asking only for fresh ventilated air (60 outside temp fresh air) if your temperature setting is above 60 it is going to warm to the higher setting. Hope that is clear.
Yell back if confusing.

Hey fast reply!! thanks..

so, this is with the system off.... i guess the "fix" is as i described B4...turn on heat...set to "Lo", turn off....then air blowing in the vents when the car is in motion (with system off) will be same temp as outside air..

that it??

thanks

I've noticed that myself and chalk it up to 'nature of the beast' : I"ve seen it on other brands too. :rolleyes:

I've found that turning of the a/c (heating or cooling) in the cool weather allows heat to still come thru slightly ----- whereas turning of the a/c in the hot weather allows cooler air to come thru. (yes even with the system off) -- so it all depends whether the system was left in a heating mode or cooling mode at shutdown.

Bit of a problem to get used to but as I said it's seems to be the nature of the beast and can be dealt with.

More later, got to fly, wifey calls -- chauffering...:)
