7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

How do you turn off the auto AC mode?

Stupid question, but I used to be able to turn the fan dial and the auto ac would disengage (I think).

Whenever I turn the fan dial now, the fan turns up or down, but the auto light stays lit green.

Furthermore, if the auto ac light is on, I can't turn it off by pressing the auto button (not sure if I could do this before)


Can somebody tell me if there auto ac light goes off by turning the fan dial or pressing auto again?

I have a 2004 745li.

Thanks.

Go into the iDrive menu for Climate Control and there you will see listings for Auto, etc. You can select another preset or customize and save your settings.

Thanks, but does the auto light go off if you change the fan speed at the dial?

The auto button is still lit after you adjust the fan speed because the airflow is still automatically controlled. The auto climate has two functions that are self-regulating....fan speed and air flow (which vent the air comes out of, and under what conditions). When you are in full auto mode, the auto on the screen will show auto which represents the fan speed (set at auto). Just because you change it, doesn't mean that you have also overridden the auto function that regulates the air flow (which vent). Once you change this setting, the auto light will disappear, but not just because you changed the fan setting.
