Re: Does anyone else have this happen?
I have the same issue with the A/C being on when I start up and here's what the manual says:
"The air conditioning compressor operates in mix, defrost, or a blend of these modes, even if the air conditioning (a/c) button is not pressed. This dehumidifies the air to help dry the windshield. To improve fuel economy, use these modes only when necessary."
This makes sense for me because I usually leave the defrost or mix on (no recirc). I tested it by switching to the panel and when I restarted a few hours later, no a/c light. I personally would prefer the a/c compressor not default to being on during start up if I've left it in Mix mode. I'd rather select a/c then have to deselect it if this is in fact the way it is supposed to operate.
