Weird AC Problem

This is strange, with the AC turned off I am getting some pretty cold air blowing threw the vents and its been hot here in Toronto. If I turn the AC on I can feel/hear the compressor kick on so how I still get cold air.

With the AC off, and temp dial turned all the way to cold, the truck will just blow whatever air that is outside... In. You may just think it is cool to how the temp is outside. I have no other explanation...?

That is normal. Toyota has the AC pump engaged (intermittently) to keep it oiled (keeps the seals wet). My 98 did it, and my 05 Tundra does it.

I don't know if your 2002 is the same as my 2010, but with AC turned off, if you crank the temp dial to full cold the AC automatically engages for a quick cool down. If I want just vent air thats on the cool side, i need to turn towards the wamer position 1 or 2 notches.
