am i an Idiot? ( AC/Heater control question)

Ok. So i just purchased a 2001 excursion.

I cant for the life of me figure out how to use the ac/heater controls. In my previous vehicle i clicked a button to turn on the ac unless it was on defrost setring then it turned on by itself. In the excursion the only way i can seem to keep the ac from turning on is by having it on the upper vent setting. any other setting i put it on seems to blow colder air than ambient. Is this right? how do i get the ac to not run and just have ambient air blow on my feet and face at the same time?


Thank in advance..

Yes you are an idiot. JUST KIDDING. Right to the left of off you should have a vent only. Unless you are a Lariat then you have digital.

What truck you do have?

Possibly, but I don't think it's related to your problem.

I can't remember the temp, but basically the air compressor will always be on in "vent" mode unless ambient temp is below a certain temp... I want to say 60*, but I can't remember.

Can't help with your other issues, tho.

Get a thermometer on it to make sure. The A/C should only be on with it in A/C or A/C MAX setting and sometimes in defrost for dehumidification purposes.

Not quite... in newer Fords (such as our Super Duties), the AC is on when the vents are in the face/floor selection...sometimes. The AC isn't supposed to come on in that position if the temp is below 50, or so. The only position when the Ac is NOT supposed to be on is when it's on the vent or floor selection.
