    I notice when I have the AC turned off & the fan speed off I still get air coming in through the vents. Anyone else have that happening? I noticed it when I was defogging the windows this morning. I turned it off and after a few minutes I realized air was still coming out of the vents. It was enough that I noticed it.

    Yes the recirculate button is off also. That's what I don't understand. Every thing seems to be off.:confused:

    When the recirculate button is off(light off) air will come in from the outside. With the recirculate button on(light on) the outside air is cut off. Also if the temp inside the cab goes up by one degree the vent will open automatically to let air in. You can override that by holding the recirculate button for 3 seconds as you close it. It will stay like that until you open it yourself or turn the engine off. Lastly you cannot recirculate when you are in defrost mode.

    ^^^In the owner's manual if you want to double check.
