Yes its normal. The auto setting controls temp and humidity. Excess humidity can fog the windows for example. Auto setting detects cabin temp and humidity as opposed to the setting (target) temp. It directs the fan speed, vent deployment (upper, lower, defrost, etc.) and compressor operation to achieve the target setting.Has anyone else noticed the AC compressor cycles even if the temp is set to "auto" at a high temp? When first getting into the car I'll set the auto temp to 80 and I can hear (and feel) the AC compressor cycle. Normal?
The fan and blend doors should still work in AUTO to control temperature even if "A/C OFF" is displayed.
