If you mean shutting the system down, of course you can do that. If it's a comfortable day when you don't need any heating or cooling just turn the system off. Then it won't run at all. Push the power button on your control panel. The button location depends on which panel you have.
Do you have an owners guide for the car? If not, there's an online version here You should thoroughly read the manual in order to familiarize yourself with the operation of the car. This is even more important with the Hybrid and its unique characteristics.
What exactly do you mean by turn off the unit? You can turn off the climate control, but I don't know why you'd want or need to do that. Just adjust the temperature.
E.g. if I get in and start the vehicle and it's blowing more cold air than I want, I increase the temperature until it slows down or stops.
You can also use it in manual mode by manually adjusting the fan speed.
I was wondering how difficult it would be to install Fog Lights into my 2014 Fusion SE. I currently just have the plastic placeholders in place of where the fog lights should be. Does my car already have the wiring for the fog lights or would I also need to buy and redo all the wiring? How difficult would this be to buy everything and try to install myself? Would love some help and some clarification. Any input is greatly appreciated!
It works just like the thermostat in your home - set it to the desired temperature and it will try to maintain that. As Art says, if you set it to 74 and it's 80 then it's going to blow cool air. If you don't want cool air, increase the temperature setting.
Also understand that it will run the A/C compressor most of the time above 35 degrees F even if it's blowing hot air. It dehumidifies the air and prevents the windows from fogging up. The dehumidified air is warmed by the heater before entering the cabin, so don't freak out if it's really cold and the heater is on full blast and the A/C is also on. That's normal.
Your car has electronic automatic climate control. If the outside temperature is 80º and you have the control set for 74º, the system determines that cool air is needed to get the interior of the car to the temperature that is set. If it was 30º outside and you still had it set on 74º, heat would come out of the floor vents. Hence, electronic automatic temperature control or EATC.
I recently purchased a used 2013 Ford Fusion SE Hybrid with about 56,000 miles. I'm still learning the car. I have an issue with the AC. It seems like it is always on. It was 80 degrees outside yesterday. I have the control set on 74, but I don't have the AC on. It still seems like I feel a light, cold breeze coming out of all vents. Any thoughts? I am not the most mechanically inclined person so I may be missing something incredibly simple.
i suppose i'm asking for a stupid english answer.. plug and play seems to me that it should be plug in and go, any hard wiring ? i'm kinda confused. everyone in the reviews said they had it installed in 5-25 minutes.
