Hmmm, not sure about that. I never turn off the AC, just leave it in auto. One thing to remember, is that right after engine startup, there is a built in delay to the climate controls. I'd say my fan starts blowing from between 10 and 20 seconds after startup when the system is left in auto mode. Don't know if that delay is active for starting the climate controls from the off position.
Why do you turn it off (it's an automated climate control system)? I understand we used to turn them off in the old days when we just had on/off and how cold on the knobs, but with temperature sensing automated systems, there is really no reason I can think of to turn them off between uses.
