When I push the "recirculate inside air" button the A/C comes on. Is this typical? Is there a "fix"?for it?
stanagain said:so when anyone drives their new avalanche past a stinky area and the temp outside is comfortable (the air here in the desert is DRY,no foggy windows) they have to live with the stench? ? thats a design error not a feature if someone has to drive in rural areas(cows,pigs Etc) I read the manual,thought maybe some wise person found a "fix" so I wouldn't need to myself.
Your system is screwed,ImpactAV said:Under what conditions can you not turn recirculate OFF? This is the opposite of what has been discussed in this thread previously.
My '03 has the Electronic Climate Control. About a month ago the recirculate switch began to come on by itself, even when the AC is not on. If I push the button, it flashes three times, and stays ON. (It even comes on when the whole system is off!)
Dealer is trying to say this is normal. Makes vague statements about the computer and all the different sensors. I think they are wrong. I think you should always be able to turn it off.
Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions? Similar experience?
I have the Electronic Climate Control and mine doesn't do what yours does.ImpactAV said:Thanks Tree_Hugger,
I think I'll give 'em one more chance, but I sure would like to be able to say that I've talked to other people with the same system and they don't have this problem. Hint, hint....

I need some advice here. Am I being too picky? The only overt indication of a problem is the silly little air recirculation coming on when it isn't supposed to, and then not being able to turn it off. Kind of goofy really.
What do you think? Am I being ridiculous in insisting that they fix, under warranty, something that may only be a very minor glitch. The shop foreman even said it was "bizarre", but they are starting to make me feel like I'm making a mountain out of a mole hill.
Any comments and advice will be very much appreciated.
