I have a 2011 Equinox. The a/c comes on automatically if I don't shut the blower fan off before starting the car. Dealership said they couldn't find anything wrong and this was normal if the vehicle hadn't been used much over the winter. WTF ... NORMAL? It started doing this in the dead of winter. This happen to anyone else? I may have to change dealerships if this is what they call normal. They did change a relay because my engine light came on....then went off after sitting for an hour. Part # 19116057. However the b.s. with the A/C is still happening. HELP !!!!

Is it full on A/C blowing out the A/C vents or just the indicator showing the A/C is active?

shows as active. I expected my windows to be cleared after letting car run for 15 minutes, only to find them still all frosty

The system is designed to cycle the A/C in the defrost mode just to help dry the air inside the vehicle to keep moisture condensing on the windows. Your sounds like it is not cycling properly, I suspect it could be a temp sensor sending a false reading to the control unit. If you still have warranty on this then your stuck with a dealer, but try another one, if you don't have a warranty then try an independent shop, do some research on shops in your area, talk to friends on where they get thier car worked on. If you can try to find a shop that has some old timers as well as younger techs working there, that way there is a larger pool of knowledge available. HTH

my recycling indicator button is on and will not turn off.....even the service tech pushed it and it never went off. Then he asked if I had ever changed the settings? How I could do that, is beyond me.

Absolutely there is something wrong, the recirc is a manual command and should go back to default when the key is turned off. I could tell you how to reset the system but if you are going to take it somewhere right away it would make diagnosising it more time consuming as the stored codes will have been removed.
