Climate Control Problems
Scotty I’ll ask you this question because I figure I’ll get a REAL answer from you. I purchased a 2019 Nissan Pathfinder 4WD SV with an automatic transmission this year after my 03 Ford Explorer was totaled. Recently the days are getting cool enough I find need to run my heater when coming back from the fire station in the middle of the night (I’m a volunteer) or when headed in to work in the morning. When I push the Auto control knob for the fan speed and heat, it will change where the air is blowing (for example face) to something else. And if I have recirculate on it will turn it off. My dealership told me this is normal, but I’m calling BS because it’s not consistently switching to one output (I.e feet etc)…one time it will go from face to feet, another time to defrosters or face and feet combo or even feet with defrosters, and ever so rarely it will stay on the face when I push the auto button to automatically regulate heat/fan speed. This doesn’t seem normal to me and it seems like it should stay on the output setting selected despite me activating the automatic regulation. Is my dealership corrrect and I have to put up with this behavior or is their something that can be fixed (such as a firmware update to the computer) or some control module I can replace. I may not be a mechanic but I know when something doesn’t seem right and this behavior from the climate system sure doesn’t seem normal to me.
This is normal for auto function.. in your owners manual it should tell you and how to set it.. otherwise simple answer is just stop using auto and just turn your heat on and put it where you want it?
