Question A/C compressor does not come on in Blend/Defrost mode

I recently bought a 2006 Limited Edition, and I noticed that the A/C compressor does not turn on when I switch to Blend or Defrost. The A/C works OK otherwise. Any ideas?

Question Re: A/C does not come on in Blend/Defrost mode

Actually, I guess it can be an advantage having it not coming on automatically all the time. I have the option to manually turn it on. (Which it will do.)

Still open for any ideas though.

If I remember right that is normal operation. The AC actually comes on anyway in defrost mode but the light won't show it.

Well, in my Crusier's case, the compressor does not turn on in Defrost until I push the button, and then it does.

As long as I can get it to work in Defrost, it's not that big of a deal. I am more concerned that it might be an indication of 'bigger' problems somewhere.

Thanks though.
