A/C always on....

Everytime I turn the car on, the A/C is automatically on.

Is there some way to disable this feature?? I looked through the owner's manual, but couldn't find anything about it.

It depends on what setting you have your heat/cold set to. If it's set to the defrost setting the AC will automatically be on.

Yup, always on. I just turn it off as necessary.
I leave it on during damp weather anyway, even when i require heat/defrost.
I find fuel economy penalty is negligible...have about 1 mpg improvement since autumn started and AC on much less.

Mine only is on when I switch the setting to defrost mode. If I leave it on feet mode only, it's never on.

Ashley is absolutely correct. And just so everyone knows if you have it on defrost and you push the AC button for the light to go off the compressor still runs. Then if you switch it off of defrost the AC button will re illuminate letting you know your compressor is still running.

Aha, this is why my AC light always on. I never use feet only setting.
I always keep fresh air moving across windows, and turn off AC when not humid ie. won't need it for drier day today.
Needed it last night tho...few flurries when i left work from aft shift!

Flurries already? Where were u? No flurries here in Hamilton yet, although they are calling for them this weekend.

I always keep it on the feet setting; keep me nice and toasty warm. I only switch if I have to defrost the windows, but so far she hasn't seen any frost.

No frost! I'm way further south in Connecticut and we had several days of frost already. Ironically it has gotten warmer since though. I give up on trying to understand weather or the times of the year it's "suppose" to be cold or hot. It's all over the place now. Almost December and it will probably be in the 60's today.
