climate control question

okay, i asked this awhile back, but no one could give me a definate answer past what happened in their cars. on my climate control, when i turn it off, turn the car off, turn the car back on, the climate control is on to the lowest setting. the temp, a/c everything is what it was at, just it is on the lowest setting. now if i turn the car off and the climate control is on, then when the car is started again, it is the same. i want when i turn it off, turn the car off and back on, it stays off. can i do this? thanks

Hey Eugene,

I had that going on on my former 00 323Ci. My dealer told me that was not programmable at the time... Annoying, isn't it?

To my surprise, my current E46's behave like I wanted. In other words, if I turn the AC off and then turn the car off, when I turn it on again, the AC stays off... :thumb:

Isn't/wasn't this part of Car/Key Memory? I coulda sworn it was on the old car/key mem worksheets. Mine works since delivery exactly like Eugene wants.

It is, but my dealer told me that it couldn't be done on my former 00 323Ci... Maybe that's changed in 01+ models... All I know is if Eugene's car is 01+, he can get it done via key memory settings...

My car does what you're talking about, yes. It is indeed a part of the car/key memory system, so either you should try to convince your dealer that it exists or head to another one that knows what they're doing.
