Hi. We are having an issue. The light on the passenger side temperature adjustment knob has been going off daily. There is no rhyme or reason for it, just randomly. The only way to get it back on is to turn off the AC system.

Note that twisting the knob does not turn off sycn which is expected. It is like every function of the knob is broken, display and control.

I am not near my daughter's 2018 but it could be only when set to duo.

This happens when mode is set to blow air on front windshield. Change the mode and you will see temperature in both knobs.

I was also worried before I found out this.

According to the photo, you have the front window defrost turned on. This overrides settings to clear the windshield and de-ice the wipers. Turn it off and it should return the info for the passenger temp.

Thanks, that makes sense. I'll have to play with it this afternoon to see if I find any other quirks before I freak out that my car is broken.
