Defogging limited by settings issue

My Model S (2014 model) is giving me a “defogging limited by settings” message with no/hardly any a/c working that I can tell. I don’t have range mode switched on, so what’s going on? I also had a new condenser fitted approx 5/6 months ago and it was ok then. Touchscreen will only let me select a/c OR Auto - not Auto with a/c.
Currently running with v10.2 and screen says software up to date as of 13 Mar.
Thanks in advance for any help/advice.

Is this the way it should be since the last update - that I can’t have auto & a/c on together?

If you put it in auto it uses a/c as it wants. If you want to do it manually it sometimes conflicts
the way auto wants to do it and then you see that notification.

Hi, thanks for the reply. When I put the temp down to ‘LO’ I’d expect the a/c to come on then but it doesn’t. I’ve found that the only time it comes on is if I switch a/c on and deselect air recirculation.
