Default Anyway to disable the Auto climate control in 2010 WRX?

On my 2006 WRX I was able to push and hold the A/C button for a few seconds and the light would blink and this would prevent the A/C from coming on automatically. I was also able to do the same thing to the Recirc button but on my 2010 the HVAC system doesn't respond to that. Is there a trick that will allow me to control the A/C and Recirc manually? I checked my manual and it doesn't say anything about this.

Thanks!

Yea, I've been doing that. I just would like to be able to use the Auto setting less the A/C cycling on and off. The new HVAC seems to be a little bit of an overachiever with some really warm air continuing to come out even with the temperature dial set just 1 click from all the way cold.

IMO, the last decent HVAC system was 02/03 when I could actually control the temp of the air coming out of the vents. I hate having air that can smelt lead come out of the vents until the cabin warms up. I'm convinced that the 'smarter' we make some of the car systems, the worse they are.

It's setup for actual (or so it thinks) temperature on the full range except for the click all the way cold and hot.

I love it, but to each their own

when you hold the buttons down for two seconds and they blink that means they have just been put on AUTOMATIC. when you press them manually on and off and keep the two knobs off the AUTO setting, you are in full manual control. to put back to auto, put both knobs on AUTO and hold the recirc down till it blinks, and the same for the A/C too

This doesn't work on my 2010 but did work on my 2006 Wagon and Sedan.
