A/C switching from Auto to Manual


Jan 13, 2020
Pittsburgh, PA
Has anyone else experienced where they leave the MY on automatic (IE: set temperature and let the MY control fan speed and air temp) and then later return to the vehicle only to notice that it's in manual mode? I tend to only notice when it's really hot and the air hasn't kicked on, but I haven't yet determined a rhyme or reason as to when it decides to switch from Automatic to Manual. It seems to only occur after leaving the car for a period of time. I have not noticed it switch ever while I've been in the vehicle.

I'm wondering if there's some setting or something I'm doing that triggers this. It's a minor inconvenience, but if there's a solution, I'd like to know what it is.
