That is most likely the standard, and unnecessary, operating procedure. If the fan is on and the vent is on feet or higher, the a/c will run if the temp is above 40ish degrees.

The only way to stop it is to leave the fan off, or keep it a click or more below feet.

It is all detailed in the owner's manual.

I do not have automatic air control and I cured the problem by disconnecting battery to reset computer and it work fine for anybody else with the same problem

Default Re: air condition runs constantly

Disconnecting the battery wouldn't correct this "feature", however.

On mid year 2003+ VUEs, the HVAC head unit turns on the compressor automaticall if the selector knob is in any of the floor or defrost positions. The 2002 - early 2003 head unit is a different part number and doesn't have this functionality.

Alot of newer model cars are like this, besides my 2006 Vue, my 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix Gt2 does it as well. The purpose of this is to keep the windows from fogging up since the newer cars are more air-tight these days. It is a wonderful gas waster, if you don't leave the selector knob at the positions mentioned above.
