Dude, you live in LA.
If it's 50° F or lower, the heater starts up if you have the fan on at all, even with the temperature setting at the lowest (60°).
oh, you mean it starts up when you need heat?
I had a car full of people the other day. It was a chilly and sunny 45 degrees that morning. After we ate brunch out we walked back to the car, which had been sitting in the sun for a few hours. Outside temp was still around 45 and the cars inside temp was well above 70 because it had been sitting in the sun. I turned Mode to blow air without Auto/AC on and temp set to lowest level of 60... even with no lights illuminated, the car still fired up the heater - I presume to get the outside temp up to 60 degrees before having it enter the cabin.
I want to do the deluxe version but need to find someone who had the experience. I really appreciate the writeup - thanks!
