Snowflake (AC) light off, a/c still on

Post by iefbr14 » Sun Dec 03, 2017 5:19 pm

Am I mis-reading the meaning of the light on the AC Control on a 2014?

Suppose I have the temp set at 68 and AUTO. The snowflake indicator is on, as is the distribution mode in effect. I decide to press the snowflake button, and it turns off.

Cold air continues to blow...and it's not the residual cold air left in the ducts. AC continues to blow when with the AC light now off....more than what might be considered a time-delayed slow shutoff.

Am I incorrect to assume the light is basically in series with the AC compressor? ON means compressor engaged; OFF means compressor not engaged.

I find compressor stays engaged after I commanded it to be OFF.

Does it do the same thing when it's not on auto?
