Setting Air-Con to off as default (95 MY06 model)

Hi All,

I've found a number of posts about how to turn the Air Con (A/C) off by default so that you never have to remember to turn it off each time you come to start the car in the mornings. However they all seem to cover the earlier 95 models with the older a/c units. I have a Saab 95 2007 vector sport estate... is it possible to make the A/C not operate by default (ie the green light to be illuminated on the A/C OFF button)?

Thanks in advance

Hi Mike, No - I've read it very carefully and many times and they don't say. I'm sure there will be some way but it's going to take some one from this expert forum i feel to advise. The reply might be it's a Tech2 thing in order to tell the car to remember it's settings for a longer time. Don't get me wrong, the car does remember but only for a short time - i think it's about 4 hours but after that it resets - I'm about to use my car in the next hour and so will double check this which is about 4.5 hours rest time. Will update later today. But in the meantime, if anyone out there knows any more techy info please do let me know. Thanks Rodp

ok, update for you - the a/c resets itself within 4 hours or sooner (car was left for 4.5 hours). I'll narrow it down a little more but i'm guessing we're going to find that the golden number is 3 hours. Will update when I know.

Update for everyone....So I came back to the car after 2 hours and it had reset the A/c. So is it after one hour then that it forgets the settings... I'll keep you posted.

>> Si, it's just that - I don't need it on. I've come from a Saab 9-3 with no climate control and so am used to it not being on. Also, I'm a stickler for wanting to be in control!! :p I would hope that there is a way for the unit to remember it's settings for a longer time and so if anyone has any ideas on this, please do let me know.

Many thanks

Hi blazed16, are you talking about a setting in the SID menu or Tech2? If you're saying SID, there doesn't seem to be any customize / customise section in the SID like I've read you have in 9-3's unless I've totally missed that whilst reading the manual and playing about. This is a MY06 (2007 9-5) model. Cheers Rodp
