Gen 2 - Recirculation Control

Recommended Posts

long story short the recirculation control doesn't work if you have the ducting set to defrost.

I'm sure this is explained in the manual but I'm still saving that exercise for a rainy day, hopefully soon.

I had left the ducting on defrost the previous trip and not realizing this, I couldn't get the recirculation switch to come on.

Was convinced it had broken until my return trip home I noticed the ducting was left on defrost and moved it to the regular position I use and the light came on, both on the recirc switch and my feeble brain. I'd prefer to have the recirc option for defrost.

I think the Recirc is more to help the Air Conditioner cool the car fast this could explain why it is disabled in defrost mode.

In defrost mode, you are trying to remove moisture from the air. Having the re-circulation mode on is only going to prolong the time it takes.

Fastest way to remove fog from the inside of the vehicle is to turn on the AC, as backwards as that sounds. The AC blows DRY air.
