I have Mazda5 2013, trying to fix an annoying issue - every time I set air to blow towards windshield, recirculation is turning off - and there is no way to turn it back on if selector is still in the "defroster" or "defroster and floor vents" position
The manual says "When selecting either defroster mode, the air conditioner and fresh air mode are automatically turned on by the system. This helps defrost the windows more efficiently by dehumidifying the air."
The problem is - I don't care if defrosting will take a little longer with recirculation turned on ( so I don't have to inhale exhaust fumes) - I can live with that
It's not just about defrosting - when my windshield is getting misty while I am on a freeway, I have no choice but to switch air to "defrost" position and recirculation is getting turned off automatically
So, here is the question - is there any way to manually override that "feature" and be able to set recirculation even while defroster mode is selected?
