Re: 2000 F250 - Air stays on always
In every vehicle I've owned, and own now, the A/C is only on if you have the control knob on the A/C settings (obviously), as well as ANY defrost setting. As mentioned, this is to keep the seals from drying out in the winter months and creating warranty problems.
I haven't heard anything but you might want to check with your dealer about a software update? I know it seems like a long shot, but the A/C compressor SHOULD not be on ALL the time. It's very inefficient.
