2002 Forester L
Well, this is a bit of a stupid question, but here goes. In my '02 Forester, when I set the climate control all the way to Cold, but leave the AC button off, it cools the car quite well, even in this recent east coast heat wave! I'm surprised by that. The air coming out of the vents is cold enough to make me think the AC is "on", i.e. the compressor is running. Is that supposed to happen when the AC switch button is off? Not that I'm really complaining or concerned..
