Climate control question
This may be a daft question so sorry in advance, the civic is my 1st car with climate control. I thought that when AUTO was not shown in the display that it was in full manual mode i.e. AC off etc. I noticed today that the car was chucking out some very cold air, AUTO was not showing on the display and if I press climate to bring the options up on the nav screen no sign of AC on or off, just blank in that section (like it is after pressing the off button). I pressed the AC button a couple of times until is showed AC off and the cold air stopped. On checking the manual when in auto mode pressing any of the heating controls changes that selection but everything else stays on auto, the auto sign on the display goes out but it is still running in a type of semi auto mode . So the air con still cuts in when needed, not an issue apart from I have been driving around thinking my air con was off. so my question is when in AUTO mode how can I tell when the system is using air con, the display is blank and I would like to be able to tell when it is cutting in etc.? I am used to a light or something being on with only ever having a manual system before. I can of course turn the air con on and off but I would like to know when the system is using it in auto mode.
As mentioned sorry if this is a stupid question.
