Air con comes on every time I start the engine

Asked by Nov 25, 2015 at 04:23 PM about the 2012 Ford Focus

Question type: General

Not sure why or if its normal or if there is a default setting??? But everyone I
start the engine the air con lights up and comes on. Any ideas why?

1 Answer


The A/C compressor comes on for A/C and the defroster setting. If your Focus has climate control this may be normal.
