Yours is messed up then. It's supposed to be cold. If it worked correctly it wouldn't be as cold as with it off, but it's still plenty cold for normal use. What it does is cycle your AC compressor off and on to save on gas. It's kinda annoying at low speeds though because you can feel it cut in and slow you down every once in awhile.

That Brings Up An Interesting Question...

What is/are the best modes to run the a/c in?

Should it be run in the a/c mode as opposed to the econ mode and should it be run in the recirculate mode as opposed to the fresh air intake mode?

Will one mode or combination of modes prematurely wear the system?

I've got $1120 in my system to date and don't want to f*#@k with it anymore.

Well you don't wanna run in re-circulate if your windows are fogged.
It helps to run re-circ when you are first starting to cool down the car.
I use the econ mode after the car has been cooled down.

A/C

I run my A/C on econ mode full time. I live in 100+ degree temps and the system has never been recharged. (yet)

I figured that keeping it on econ will extend the life of my A/C, and its always been cool enough.
