front defrost button issue
very minor issue. so I tried using the front defrost today to the right of the on/off wheel and if I press the button to turn on, you can't just press the button to turn it off. if you turn the fan off and turn it back on, the front defrost light is still on. You have to press the button to the left of the on/off wheel and change location of air flow in order to make the front defrost button turn off. this is peculiar because you can turn the rear defrost on and off simply by pressing the button only. wondering if anyone else noticed this as well.

Re: front defrost button issue
I havent tried this on my 2013....been too warm here. But I know from my wifes 2011 durango and it does the same I think. Serems like it changes the vent it comes from to the defrost vents and you need to switch to another vent to get off the defrost vent. make sense? Ill look next time Im in my 2013.

Re: front defrost button issue
Makes sense but at the price we paid, they should have figured this minor inconvenience out (among other things discussed already elsewhere). My other SUV is from 2007 and they figured it out then! Thanks for looking into it but I am sure you are correct with the Durango. Sat in one last week, amazing how many parts from the parts bin they share...

Re: front defrost button issue
yep...same auto temp controls.

Anyway...looked at my 2013 and it is the same as yours. I had to hit the mode buttom to change from defrost.

Hitting the defrost takes it off auto. Just hit auto again to put it pack in auto mode.
