Question need help? is this normal?

when i turn the fan off in my car (climate control) , it will go on automatically...i think its the defrost. sometimes, its on (not on auto) and it will go up and down by itself.

Is there a setting for this?

If oyu are talking about the fan speeds changing on their own and you having no control of it no matter what you do then it is the same problems I had. Mine would go on and off and changes speeds and i could not do anything about it. It is a sensor in the AC unit, I forget the name, that regulates the fan speed and temp. iIt should be replaced under warranty. I hadmine replace din August of 2001.

the smell is "normal"...

according to bmwna... the only thing i gotta say say to that is ... "pffft... wha'eva'..." anyway... you can't fix it, the only thing you can do is disinfect the condensator thingy, every now and then.
