For the automatic on/off ac you will ALSO have to update your older 10 button hvac unit with a 2004+ 12 button unit. I did this to get the auto ac on/off option. See pictures below:

But you want the AC to 'stay off' and not turn on every time you get in the car? or are you saying you want it to turn on with the car every time? The older non auto HVAC should already be defaulted to stay off every time the car starts if it was left on previously.

Normally drivers update to the auto on/off HVAC to get it to turn 'automatically' on when starting the car every time. So if you want it to stay off I'm not sure if the update will help. If anything you may just have to return the car to the dealership and have them remove that code. (I think I read that this is where the code comes from- at the purchase of the car for the first time some dealership code the HVAC to stay on or stay off depending on climate and region the car is sold in)

BEFORE with pre2004 style 10 button HVAC:

AFTER with post2004 style 12 button HVAC:


Thanks for your reply!

I want the HVAC to stay OFF when I start the car. Even if I turned off manually, when I start the car he came ON again, very annoying!
Any change I can code that with PA SOFT?

About the dim indicators, strange thing I cant put them ON as daylights, because the option is there! I also notice that I got fewer light coding options.
