Did anyone ever find out what is causing this issue? I have a 2010 as well and it is doing the same thing. They even just replaced the condenser for the A/C.

Mine is still doing the same, turning on by itself and not turning off...now I have the additional problem of the air conditioner turning off by itself when I want it on :(

easy fix ! my 2012 santa fe had same problem . I changed the cabin air filter and fix the problem since then . I think the dirty filter has something to do with it .

I just bought my used 2012 Santa Fe from a VW dealer and it has the same problem. Per the above post, I went to change the cabin filter but found that it was perfectly clean already, so that's not the cause of my a/c turning on automatically. If anyone else has any other suggestions, please let me know!

I was told it was the control panel causing the issue. Since I had already put in quite a bit of money on other problems, I decided to trade it in for a Toyota. Apparently the 2010 V6 model was known to have issues. Sigh
