Guys, Server was only trying to help, offering the 3 processes he knew of that would toggle the AC auto on/off.
Don't berate a fellow member for trying to help, by offering useful advice and giving clear instructions on what to do & what it does!

Crikey, many groan at Disbeliever for going off topic, when almost every post in this thread is petty arguments & not useful advice related to the original post!!

When I first got my pro_ the AC kicking on every time I started engine was damn annoying, a query on here taught me how to disable that 'feature' which helped enormously.

Either help, offer something useful to the conversation or simply don't post.
Simples.

If in doubt, Accelerate!

The first one (from my sleeves) disables the auto logic defogger (if equipped) which turns on A/C every time it sense condensation higher than normal and over-rides ANY user input until levels are reached. This is one of the "erratic" behaviors the op mentioned.

The second (sleeve'd solution) disables or toggles the AUTO climate control completely and give more manual control ie. when you increase heat to windshield, the fresh air source changes to outside. The toggle sequence leaves it on user desired.

The third does the same thing as the first but in different sequence and yes pertains to defogger logic. The reason you'd want to toggle this would be to PREVENT the system from over-ride user input (erratic part) which constantly throws the A/C on as if you're some filthy stinkin rich oil sheik...

Those are the only three I found inside my sleeves next to this bunny rabbit and handkerchief

Good luck and god bless

No it wasn't. He was wondering why the system wasn't turning the heater on.

On an automatic system the input air stays on user desired setting at all times except when LO is selected. On leaving LO the air input returns to the previous state, which would be correct behaviour. Do you know how to prevent recirc when LO is selected?

The only sequence mentioned in the handbook is the defog sequence for a manual system. Nothing is mentioned for any adjustments to an automatic system. If you know of these magic sequences please say what they are.

In that case, may I be so bold to ask what you can offer?

As a reminder to contributors. The question is: when the outside air is 15-18 degrees and the dial is set below 24 the system does not appear to be providing any heat.

Any comments to do with the operation of air conditioning (or AC, which is to do with providing cold air) are irrelevant. Any comments referring to a system that does not look something like this are irrelevant:-



The OP was absolutely precise in his description. It seems he has a better grasp of english than a lot of native speakers.

It's raining and 11.7 C. That's my side of the bargain. How about telling us about these magic sequences?
