Hi, not sure if this is normal or if I am just doing something wrong, but it seems to me that as soon as I get in the car with AUTO on, it blows cold air at me right away and seems to do this until I get out-no matter how cold/hot I am. I have the temp set at 70 or 69.

It seems like AUTO is just blasting the fan at me and nothing else. I thought I was told that the AUTO would wait until the car is warm before blasting air at me, but it seems to blast cold air all the time and I'm usualy really cold haha. I have seen all the arguments regarding what the AUTO does with AC and all that, but I am not disputing that, only wondering about why I am cold all the time.....

Any ideas?

THANKS!

Let me get this straight; you have the temp set to 69 and are wondering why it's always blowing cold air at you? :lol:

Ususally setting the temp to with 2 or 3 degrees of the displayed outside temperature yields ideal cooling.

Isnt 69 the lowest it'll go?

No, 60 is the lowest (at least that's the lowest for tech version).

Really, though, if it's too cold just start increasing the temperature. As you increase it you'll hear (and feel) the fan slow down.

My temp is usually set to around ~78.

Oh, and if you have it on Auto mode, then often it switches to recirculation mode (when you start the car) until the interior is sufficiently cool -- then automatically switches to fresh air. Sometimes recirc is overkill so I press the fresh air button right away.

Tay have you had the underdash panel off recently? there is an air temp sensor behind a little grill by your right knee. If you don't plug that back in then you will get what you describe.

Check the thermostat in your house. It might say 70, but what is the real temperature? Unless they are Honeywell digital units, or equivalent quality, are notorious for being COMPLETELY inaccurate.

yeah turning the temp up to 75-78 worked thanks :wink:

Never though about the actual temp before driving this thing-all i know was that if I turn the heat past 70 in the crib my parents would always get mad haha.

I always kept it at 76 and it was just right; anything below that would be too cold. AC in the FX WORKS, even in TX heat. I have to keep the Auto AC in the Z set at about 77 or it's too cold. Never tried measuring the actual air temp...
