Takeda... The A/C compressor runs in EVERY position except right on your face. And after doing the switch mod I can enjoy heat on my feet, and mileage of 20 mpg city. Where before it only did 18. I have the 3.slow. This was probably the best mod I have done on the truck.
And yes, like you said, in the morning if my windows are foggy, I pop it on for a bit to de-fog and then turn it right back off.
I can feel it every time it comes on. More or less its like lifting off the gas. A big jerk. Its VERY annoying when its happening every 35 seconds or so in non-a/c mode.
