#2 of 18 question about "auto" setting on climate control
Jun 18, 2006 (4:36 pm)
What, exactly, is being controled when you select "auto"? The usability guy in me thinks that the appropriate lights ought to come on when auto takes over, e.g., if the a/c is running then the a/c light ought to be on. Yet when I turn on auto none of the other lights come on. Indeed, if I touch any button except the air filter (the "A" button) then auto shuts off.
Another question - how do I determine the temperature inside the car?
Another question - how do I set the fan speed higher when I have the vents open (or recirculating air) but the a/c off?

On the Azera, the Auto setting is like setting the thermostat on your a/c at home. Even though the A/C light does not come on, the air will be cooled by the car. The only way to get to "Vent" would be to turn off the Auto setting and make sure the A/c switch is not on. The Fan speed is controlled by the control at the top center of the climate control panel, with arrows pointing left or right to raise or lower the fan speed.
As to the inside temp in the car, on the Azera, there is a small slot in the center dash that "reads" the temperature. It doesn't display the temp on the panel, but that is how the Auto setting starts to increase/decrease cooling or heating to match the settings.
Boy, lot of words to try explaining a simple thing. Hope that helps

When I do not have AUTO on (i.e., just using the vents) and I adjust the fan speed then AUTO turns on. That doesn't seem right, does it?

sundevils, I have to apologize, I don't have enough experience with Azera to tell if my behavior is the same. Maybe the default behavior is assuming you always want Auto rather than vent? Go figure...

The "auto" setting has a sensor that reads the outside quality of the air and sets the a/c to accept outside air or recirculate inside cabin air only.

On my Azera 2006, when I press the OFF button the fan stops. If I then press the fan speed control to get only unconditioned air flow every thing seems to turn ON; even if the light on the A/C and the AUTO are not green, the A/C is ON and I get cold air.
My dealer tried to explained how to get uncooled air but got confused by the controls and ended up suggesting to set the temperature control high enough to be sure the air conditioner is not working. He would not admit that the control was defective.
Can you (or someone else) can tel me if we can get uncooled air when turning on the fan? Thanks

You might try the search function, this has been discussed before. Sorry, I can't remember how it's done.

Hit the "AC" switch twice to prevent the air conditioning from coming on. One hit, the AC led is on and AC is locked to on; second hit it's off and kept off. If you were in "AUTO" when you double-tapped the AC, the "AUTO" led will go off, but the system will still try to maintain the desired setting, changing fan speeds and recirc. automatically, just w/o access to the air conditioning.
After hitting the AC switch twice, you can also manually adjust the fan and the head-foot-both switches and recirc./fresh air, all w/o AC. To get all back to normal, hit the "AUTO" switch...
