    Just recently noticed on my 04 Tacoma that when I turn the fan control off, I still get air blowing through the vents like it's not off. When I'm parked, I really don't notice it but when I'm driving it's like it's on low or something.


    It's this normal. My other cars and trucks never did this. If something's wrong, what do I need to fix it.

    there is a button on the controls that is the recirculation control. you probably switched over to the defrost and that will shut that off opening it up. push it and make the light come on and it will go away

    Move the vent switch over to recirculation.

    So I just leave the recirculation button on all the time? Just recently bought the truck so I'm still learning.

    Personal preference. If you have if off it vents the air from the outside of the truck.

    Theres a slider switch above the fan slider switch, all the way to the left position is recirculating ( I believe) & all the way to the right is a "fresh air" setting (actually, outside air is better definition) slide this to the left & your problem should be gone....:cool:
