HVAC turning itself on?

For the last few days, whenever I start my car, the HVAC system turns on by itself. It used to be if i kept it off...it would stay off until I turned it on. Now, i turn it off, and i even put it in manual mode before turning it off...and when i start the engine...it turns itself on again.

Is this a feature (meant to drive me crazy) or something not right?

Check your settings in MFT vs the DZ-Eatc control head, if its turned on in MFT it will stay on when you restart the car even if the control head was turned off afaik.

Hi Shantheman2012,

Swing by the dealership so they can take a look. If you'd like, you can wait until your next scheduled service appointment so you don't have to take two trips. If you have any additional questions, feel free to contact me via PM.

Have a great weekend,
Crystal
