    As cwescapexlt4x4 said, yes you can recirc without AC. Note that if you have vents only on floor or any sort of front window defrost mode, AC will be on. I never understood why the floor only would require AC on, but it annoys me sometimes.

    When you hit the R-Circ button, the AC and Auto come on right?

    After they come on, just hit the AC button to turn it off. If the "My temp" setting is too far from the ambient temp outside, it might force the AC to come back on. Try resetting your "My temp" setting to something close to the outside temp.

    On your center console, below the 8" screen, there are temp controls to adjust temp up and down.

    The middle button, when held down for 2-3 seconds will memorize the current temp setting, thus making it "my temp".

    So if you adjust the temperature manually for some reason, then the next day want to go back to the memorized temp, just hit the middle button and it will revert to the memorized temperature.

    Kind of like radio presets...
