Ford 3.2 Ranger 4x4: I have a 2012 Ford Ranger 3.2 my problem

Resolved Question:

I have a 2012 Ford Ranger 3.2 my problem is that each time the vehicle is started the aircon comes on automatically. Is there any way to override this so that I don't have to switch off the aircon every time?

This may be something that is switchable in the body control module, if so only your Ford dealer would be able to do so. Ask your local dealer. You may have to get them to plug into your vehicle to see if the option exists.

Does the vehicle have climate control?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

 

No climate control but I think I found the solution:

The aircon was set on max and then started automatically when I started the bakkie

so I just move the knob one up and now it doesn't start automatically.

 

But I have another question: The park lights comes on automatically when I start the

bakkie and stays on even if I switch the lights to 'off'. How can I get the park lights not to stay on when I'm driving?

 

Thanks for the help so far
