This is without using the auto setting or leaving it turned on when you park the car, leave, come back, restart the car, & turn the power button on. It does not remember the temp or blower for example. Is this normal, a design flaw, or does it need a new module?
To answer your question (as I have the same car), it is designed to remember. Yours is not acting right. My car remembers the last set temp when I start my car up every time. I would schedule an appointment with your dealer. Perhaps your control head is bad.

I was just getting ready to say my 13 ST remembers the setting's possible memory wire not hooked up, or as misfire stated control head bad.

Could it be a MFT issue as well?

Same thing with mine. 12 sel here, it remembers the last set temp everytime i start my car. I just test it again and it works. You need to bring your car in the dealer and ask them about it and compare your cars auto climate ctrl to another same model in the dealers lot to let them know what you mean.

thunderstar,

Welcome to the forum! I replied to your other thread as well. In case you missed it, I’ll reply here. I’ve received the PMs you sent and I’ll be answering soon.

There are a number of different setups available for your truck, zetecDon. I recommend checking the “Climate Controls” in the 2010MY F-150 Owner Guide 3rd Printing starting on page 59.

Grab a free digital copy of the Owner Guide here:
