    When using the windshield wipers, the a/c stays on - even if you're trying to warm the cabin up. I thought it was neat when I realized it.
    Why would A/C turn off when using the wipers? Do you mean defrosting the windshield? That's pretty much the norm.

    Where I live, it hasn't rained for a while, and it's usually in the 40s when I drive home from work. When it wasn't raining, I'd turn on auto climate control, and the a/c wouldn't be turned on automatically since i have it set to 75.

    Last night was rainy, but at no time did I need to use defrost. I noticed that the a/c was turned on automatically, and i bet it's because i needed to have the wipers running.

    Much like the headlights automatically turn on when you use the wipers (even during the day), the a/c turns on automatically when the wipers are on.

    When the a/c is running, it dehumidifies the air, so that's why it's programmed to turn on when wipers are used.

    A/C used to come on in my old STi whenver I turner on the defroster. Seemed to work way better than just warm air.

    For any vehicle that is equipped with a compressor, it is normal for it activate with the defrost function. It is also normal for it cease function, specifically when ambient temps are below freezing.

    Are you all saying that the defroster turns on when the wipers are in use and automatic climate control is selected?

    My a/c doesn't turn on automatically when i set the temperature to 75 during cold nights... unless I'm using the wipers.

    Here's a recent "discovery": you can unlock the doors from the rear doors if you pull the door handle twice while it's locked (from the inside, obviously). My daughter was goofing around in the car and I locked the doors so she wouldn't get out. She pulled the handle twice and all the doors unlocked. Tried it a few more times and same result.

    I started a thread on this a while back. The car I test drove (with recarros and nav) had this feature - the salesman even demo'd it to me. My car (minus those features) does not do that. There were a few others who chimed in with various other option combos who had varied results. Weird, right?

    My 15 does that. My 69 year old dad thinks it's bad ass lol. It's true it is faster to do it manually by far.

    This sounds like it would be contrary to NHTSA laws/regs, since it would allow a child to do exactly what your daughter did, and open the door while the car is MOVING (or is it rendered totally non-functional when the car is moving? {I HOPE!} ).

    It just seems strange that we have rear windows which cannot roll all the way down, and then they put something like this in as a function.

    I'm pretty sure the child safety lock overrides this when it's enabled. Or we would have heard a crap storm about kids opening Fiesta doors while in motion and getting hurt.
