Question focus recirculation mode

hi guys, sorry but here is another question from me. before i prepare to drive my focus right into the dealer's front door can someone pleae confirm for me that:

if you leave the recirculation mode on before you turn off the engine, does it stay on when you start your car again? my one is off after i start the car again even though that i didn't turn it off before i switch off the engine.

i don't know if this is a feature or a glich, i'm sending my car back again to fix the rattle and stability issues next week, so appreciated if anyone could confirm this for me so i can take this problem with me to the dealer.

Re: focus recirculation mode

Well my EA does, so would expect a newer car to default back to what it was set before the engine was turned off, i wouldn't call it a feature

I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think

Re: focus recirculation mode

Just checked it out on my way to work

Yup each time you turn the car back on the recirc turns itself off again so you need to turn it on each time

Re: focus recirculation mode

It turns off when you turn the car off; Also, when you select to blow your windscreen, it will also turn off, and it won't turn back on automatically if you select it to blow anywhere else.
That's my observation

Don't bother running...

Re: focus recirculation mode

Yeah, it's held on electrically, and resets itself when you turn the car off.

Correction, the recirc if selected, will turn off if you use the front screen demist setting, but will turn back on automatically when you bring it back to either floor or face level.
