Ironic;
I was reading my Owners Manual during lunch today and came across that.
EC is when you want to go in Economy mode and want the air circulated but don't want to engage the Air Conditioning System.
Economy Circulation.

I usually keep EC engaged and run the AC for 10 minutes once a week. Although I like the idea of constant temp inside I hate the whine of the bloddy AC fans that just go on and on and on.

Really? Hmm your might need greasing then, only if it's really hot and I run mine on Auto or high do I get noise, on min which gently changes the temp it's silent.

Was m6dtt referring to the "big fan at the front" or the heater blower? I'm not familiar with his car type but I thought it would be some fault issue if the radiator fans blow at max all the time (at decent outside temp)?
