Turn Off AC During Defrost or Defrost+Floor Modes

I am pretty sure the AC kicks in when selecting Defrost or Defrost+Floor modes. The AC light does not come on and pressing it does nothing.

On our 2006 Civic this was the procedure to make the AC light/button functional and you could toggle the AC even in these modes:

THIS IS NOT FOR FOCUS THIS IS FOR 8th Gen CIVIC FOR REFERENCE
1. Turn car on.
2. Turn temperature knob all the way cold and turn the fan knob to off.
3. Put vent location to "face"
4. Turn car off
5. Hold down the Re-circulation Button and the A/C Button.
6. Hold down both buttons and turn the key all the way to the on position.
7. Keep both buttons depressed until one of the lights blink a few times, then you get a solid green light once the change has been made. Then let go.
8. See if it works by putting the fan on in Defrost. You should see the A/C light turn on and you should be able to turn it off.
