Just and FYI.
Good point.

I've been considering rigging up a switch on the Cherokee for this. Ultimately, I think I'm just going to get rid of the A/C altogether on it.

Both of my vehicles, I've considered rigging up a switch. My focus ALWAYS runs the AC in ALL positions. Even though there's an AC button. Odd thing. There's some times where it's cool enough outside that you just want to circulate some air without running the A/C.
