Have had a 2007 Sportage for about a year now, what a great car
. The question I have as a new member is can the A/C be turned offand left off.? Each time you turn the ignition on, the A/C comes on as well, if I want it on I'll put it on, is how I would like it to be.


Any suggestions?

If the airflow is set to the windscreen setting only the A/C will always activate on start up, set it to the screen/floor setting and it should stay off, cheers iain

Yes, it is possible to override the auto A/C on to make the switch purely manual except when you select Max A/C.



It's explained in your handbook (section 4 - cancel defogging logic) but this is how you do it:



Turn ignition to ON



Select windscreen position on the rotary control



Push the air intake button in the centre of the control at least 5 times in 3 seconds



The air intake button will then blink 3 times - job done! (to revert repeat the procedure)



Please let us all know how this works for you....it's how I run my car...like you, I prefer to decide when I want A/C (which is not at this moment)!

hi all just a note to say the above post will only work on the manual climate control,there is also auto climate control fitted to the xs,and titan versions and the defogging logic solution will not help these cars. h.

The instructions I wrote were for the manual A/C. However, you can also cancel the logic for the climate control versions if you want to. Proceed as above but at the 3rd stage hold down the A/C button while at the same time pressing the air intake button at least 5 times in 3 seconds.

Wow, Thanks for that :)I asked the same question in the newbies section but didn't get an answer yet.

I'll try and link back to this forum in case anybody else has the same question :)
