Fog lights and Recirc mode always on?
Does anyone know if there is a way of programming the car to do the following:
1. Recirculate mode stays on all the time when selected (or automatically selected in high heat)
2. Fog lights come on with headlights in "Auto" mode
The first one baffles me that they didn't design it that way to begin with. Have they never lived in high heat like here in Houston? I'm constantly having to select that every time I get in the car to cool it down quicker - it literally takes half the time as cooling all that hot outside air... My 2003 Saab does this all by itself. My 2008 ML55 does not and it has basically the same kind of climate controls as the SLK
The fog lights I don't get either. I can only turn them on in the manual on mode, which defeats the purpose of having auto mode. In the ML, I was able to change something in the menus that let me leave the headlight switch in the on position all the time with the fog lights on, but when I turn the car off, they go off so its no big deal - they're basically on when the car is on. Can't find a way to do that on the SLK
I have use of a friend's xentry laptop for another week, so if three is a way to do either of these it would make me love my car even more...
