Hi,

I'm new to the forum and KIA Telluride is my first SUV.Recently I tried playing around with some climate control settings.
After that even when I'm in manual mode (Auto off, AC on, air flow facing front passenger) and then try to turn on the air re-circulation button on (to avoid the smog smell near signals) the button turns off and draws outside air.
This is really annoying me especially during peak traffic hours running bumper to bumper.I can't keep pressing the re-circulation button every time it switches back to draw outside air.
I have read this similar issue with other KIA vehicles as well.Tried reaching out the KIA customer affairs and learnt that its working the way its designed as its a vehicle with advanced technology.
Please help me if any other in this forum was able to fix this issue.

I'm not sure if it's working the way it's designed, but recirculate on many vehicles is not available when defrost is selected, I wonder if that could be the issue.

I know on the stinger, it will revert back to fresh air after a couple minutes. It is designed that way to keep windows from fogging and fresh air levels in the interior higher. There was a big section in the owner's manual about it. You can turn that off though with a combination of button pushing/holding. I'm sure it's probably the same with the Tellurdie. It was also like this with the Optima according to owners of that car.

There is a setting for auto dehumidify in the climate settings under automatic ventilation. When it is turned on, it will automatically switch back to fresh air after an extended use of recirc. Then that off, and you should be able to use recirc to your heart’s content. 👍

Just want to update on this issue - Last week I went on a long drive and some how the air re-circulation button is not turning off now. its been 5 days so far and when I start or going on a short trips the button is staying. Not sure if its some coding issue with the micro processor.
I will update once again if it starts acting weird and turning off re circulation button frequently.

Where are you located? If it’s anywhere with normally elevated humidity in the air with the AC running? I suspect it won’t turn off recirc if it’s humid outside or is the AC is on.
