Air conditioner, fan only?

I turn the knob to manual volume control, press the snow flake button to turn off and set temperature to minimum. But it still blow hot air.

Is there way to set it to fan only? Thanks.

Is this for a Honda Civic?
Is the dehumidifier setting to hot via the knob on the dash
or the setting in iDrive?

Warm air will blow through vents when the snowflake is off, especially if
the recirc button is on. If the recirc button is off the air would be coming from outside
and is not recirculated throughout the cabin. If it is cool outside the air would probably
be cool even though the snowflake is off.

E60. There's a dehumidifier setting? I only remember the knob, snow flake and recirculate button.

I think I had the recirculate set on auto (A light up). So turning it off will result in cool air? I'm not even sure what sets recirculate off, all lights off on that button?

Really kind of hate anything "auto".

No luck. Turn fan speed dial, turn off snow flake, turn off internal circulation, but still blow hot air in winter.

Any suggestions? Thanks
