Air Conditioning


Asked by Apr 04, 2016 at 09:52 AM about the 2010 Ford Escape XLS 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi. I just recently bought a Ford Escape 2010
model.  I understand the car is a bit old but is in
relatively good condition. However the AUTO
word keeps blinking while the air con is
running.  Is this normal? After starting the car it
displays manual then crossers over to AUTO
keeps blinking and doesn't stop.  It's does
seem to adjust the temperature okay though
and mechanically works fine including cold air.  
Is this how these things seem to operate?

Thanks Richard.
