Q: Climate control off by 8 degrees

asked by on

in auto climate I have to set the temp at 60 degrees for it to remain 68 inside the cab. The auto climate temp setting only goes down to 58, below that it says"LOW", and the AC comes on at high. Is there a way to calibrate this when I want the heat in the cab to match the setting of the "Auto climate control" ? It seems to be off by 8 degrees when calling for heat.
