    Pano roof tilt or opened

    New to KIA Optima and I noticed every time I have my roof on tilt or open the climate system still blows out something depending on the temp outside... why is that and how to stop it?

    i think its more or less the air temp you had it set to before you turned off the blower motor. if you have the roof open and your temp is set for the winter it will still blow luke warm. think it has something to do with the air being sucked out of the vents and out the roof. even when your blower motors not on theirs always a bit of air coming from the vents, atleast there is on mine. But your def right when the roof is tilted or open theres always air coming out of the vent.

    Thanks, I heard hitting the recycle button stops it, but then eventually that button goes off... I dont really like this and hope we have way to change it.

    I usually adjust the temp to the outside temp helps minimize the cold or hot air.

    This a common issues on a lot of cars not just ours. If you press the recirculation button it will stop. (with our cars though the button turns off when the car is shut off)

    It's absolutely ridiculous and something I have always HATED about my Kia.

    The recirculate button only stays on for 90 seconds and then shuts off, when the sunroof is tilted open a pinch.

    No way around this other than constantly pushing the button every 3 minutes to keep it on.

    Really? My button stays on until i turn the car off. My corolla which did not have a sunroof had this issue too except it was much worse.

    So when your AC is off whatever the temp was set on is kinda what will blow when off and roof open?

    Are you sure? I'd double check with the AC on and the sunroof tilted open.

    If it does not do it, then maybe it's only something that happens on my K900.

    Yes when i have the roof open or tilted and the blower off, i always have to turn it back on to turn it up and down a few degrees then turn it back off. That's how i solve my problem.
