I don't think this is a problem but the way the system is designed. In the automatic mode the system will try to drive the inside temperature to the selected value. This is accomplished faster by cooling the air inside the car instead of bringing more hot air inside. When the temperature reaches the selected value it reduces the fan speed and eventually switches to outside air from recalculate. It's been so hot here in Texas that it takes a long time for the system to switch over to outside air. On my drive home in the afternoon it sometimes doesn't switch for the entire thirty minute journey.My 2013 Accord has developed a problem with the air conditioning. Each time I turn it on, the 'inside air' function activates. As you probably are aware, when the inside air function is on, the blower noise level is higher than without. I can manually turn the inside air button off, but the system remains on inside air.
This happens each time the unit A/C turned on and will not turn itself off, as it's designed to do, after the interior has cooled down.
Have any of you had this type of problem with any late model Accord? Wanted to check with others before I entrust the car to the dealer shop. I like to have an idea of the problem, in advance.
