Hey guys,

When I use my AC it seems as tho it’ll work for maybe 10 minutes when out of no where it blows ice cold and the fan speed increases. When Ching fan speed or temp nothing changes. Anyone else?

Id suggest popping into your local dealer and letting them know. Definitely something faulty.
Does it occur regularly? They like to say “we couldn’t recreate said problem”

Do you have Auto AC in your Big Bend? In Auto setting, the fan speed changes automatically to cool the vehicle as quickly as possible to maintain the set temperature. I never use the Auto AC setting in any of my vehicles because of the situation you are describing. I use manual setting, recirculating button on when using the AC and have full control of the fan speed as required. This optimizes fuel economy as the cooled air from the AC blowing into the cabin is recycled so the system doesn’t have to work as hard.

Our OB has been on auto since day one & no issues , see your dealer , you may have temperature sensor issues . Is your system keeping temp. setting , with duel climate sections , if one is needing cooling , the system will act to satisfy that zone . Contact your dealer to get into service to test the system .

I do the same as I tend to prefer a slower fan speed than any of the auto modes give when there is a large temperature difference. I swear that the fan has a mind of its own even in manual mode though, sometimes level one seems to put out way more air than others, I don’t find it consistent.
