    Are you using the same key? The climate stays on a desired temp due to the key aswel! If you go to HI and then switch the fan off, it'll go to a certain temp - that's what mine does

    Mine always stays on whatever I left it at when switching the car off. I do always switch it off before switching the car off though, so not sure if that makes any difference at all or not.

    The settings are stored per key.

    So if i get in, set it to 21c and ECON, then the missus gets in and sets it to 18c with AC and full blowers, when i get in again with my key, it returns to 21c and ECON.

    Perhaps theres a comms or coding issue between the climate unit and clocks, so the climate unit doesnt know what keys being used?
