Default Heating issue

I generally run the car on auto however I often turn it off yet I still get air circulating through the car at thew temp I have it set too.. Does anyone know how to completely turn that off ?. I might have asked the question before but since I don't remember what I had for dinner last night need I say more

Since nobody seems to be alive here, I will take a crack at this. Every car I have owned with Auto climate control does this. It passively pushes air through the vents. I have not found how to turn this off, but have found how to trick myself into thinking it is off.

Turn auto back on.

Press mode button until the system is on the footwell setting

Press the off button.

That will make the small amount of air come out somewhere inconspicuous and feels like it is off.

Hope this helps!

A trick that might work, not sure on the K9. When driving my Soul EV many times I will turn off the climate control to save on battery power and increase range, just before I do so to turn on the recirculation option. Honestly I do not know if this works but it feels like the cold air stops coming in.

I am taking the K9 out of the garage tomorrow so I will give it a try.

SOLUTION to air circulating is to turn off outside air being circulated and use inside air .This will shut off air coming through vents .In the summer I will turn it back on but during spring and winter why does one want or need outside cool air Does this make sense or am I still missing something ? BTW thanks for all the feedback

Diving my all electric Soul I try different things to help conserve battery power. I have found that if the recirculation is not on during the winter there is a buildup of moisture in the car and windows start to fog up as the glass is cold from outside. This might not be a problem in the K9 as it is larger, but could be the reasoning for having it.

Sorry, if recirculating if left on, i.e. No fresh air from outside, that causes the build up of mosture in the cabin. I would assume that is why.
