Auto ac control

Hey guys I have a 2013 se and it has the manual ac controls and I was wondering if anyone has experience switching over to the automatic? Is it even possible?

I think a better question is, does anyone actually use the auto? It's much too aggressive for me. The Auto doesnt understand that it doesnt have to be on full blast all the time. Probably not worth the trouble for you.

I use it 99% of the time, Sometimes on hot days I have to adjust it when I turn the car on but once it's cooled a little I set it back to auto and it does it's thing. It's one of my favorite things about the car.

I have the Titanium so its tied into the MFT. It may require MFT, but may not. Not really sure.

The Dual Zone climate control doesn't require MFT, but Ford now requires you to buy MFT to get the dual zone climate control.

My 2012 SEL had the dz-eatc with the base sync system.



My 2013 ST2 has MFT because I liked the dual zone climate control enough to put up with MFT, although it's not been as bad as previously indicated.

It's the 8" touch screen infotainment system that comes with the 10 speaker sony stereo on the SE 201A, Ti, and ST2-3 models.
