    ECO Button



    Question, does anyone know if the ECO button on the climate control isn't used, is the AC compressor working? I guess is it like an anti AC button?

    I believe that the 'ECO' button is simply an on/off switch for the compressor. That is what the dealer told me anyway.

    Nobody told me, but that's what I assume. It's great the way it stays on after a restart. In my Z I was always racing to the button after turing the key.

    i think if you have auto climate control, yes, the AC compressor is on a lot of the time. at least that's how it works on my infiniti. the P dealer told me the same thing and said if you press the eco button, then the AC compressor turns off.

    Eco button turns off AC compressor, I usually have the ECO button lit up most of the time for that extra ounce of performance... [img]/fckeditor/editor/images/smiley/MWPX/dance.gif[/img]

    Problem over here is the humidity. Without aircon widows steam up in seconds, and at 2-3 deg C it's too cold to have the midows down to clear the fog.

    AtlasCroc....It's easy to figure out as I drive the same way...Have even been known to drive with the heater on high and widows down just to enjoy the drive experience in the cold.....

    Ironically, I find that I love driving this car with the windows down as it makes the drive all that more involving. So far this year I haven't needed the A/C on with the windows down. Drove the Ortega Run with the windows down all the way, that, combined with nearly 5 gallons of racing fuel, made that the best drive ever.

    Jackwood,

    I agree, there is nothing worse than a steemed up 'widow'. I prefer married women myself. [img]/fckeditor/editor/images/smiley/MWPX/wink_smile.gif[/img]
