Any clues how you turn the air conditioning off ?
I tried the 'off' button, but evidently the car knows best and still turns it on periodically even though it's still got the 'button' reading 'off'.....
Or am I destined to drive with a jumper on all the time ?

And you are up at 4.37 worrying about that - Steven King's "Christine" comes to mind. Zoe has a tendency to do the same as well as turning the lights on when I park in the garage and the wipers if it thinks it might rain :D

Turn the temperature up if it's cold? The air con on/off bit is in a sense irrelevant as it's how it targets the desired temperature that matters, in other words if the air con is on it will up the heat a bit from the battery/engine/heater to compensate. I've noticed on cooler days I often have to have the temperature set to 24 or more with climate set to Max to get it up to temperature...

these days you don't really turn it off as such - you just set it to what you like and leave it - although I agree you should have an on / off option. I have found the Ampera air con not as good at providing a stable reliable temp as other cars I've had and I do have to adjust it up and down a bit...
