If it is on the Gen 2, I have not been able to find it either. My guess is there were too many of us complaining about the A/C & Heat running at the same time and/or switching itself on and off frequently, so they removed the icons.On my Gen I Volt's I could see the HVAC Heat/AC ICON's change when one or BOTH were in use. Can I see the same thing on a Gen II?
Funny, that's kind of what I was thinking.....but I do love the traditional HVAC controls. That was a major improvement for me.If it is on the Gen 2, I have not been able to find it either.

Even with the AC off and in Fan only mode the AC may turn on to cool the battery if necessary. IF the fan is blowing it will blow cool air. The only way to keep the cool air out of the cabin in that situation is to have the fan off.Can you leave the AC off even though you have a cabin temp set higher than the car? I should explain...my biggest pet peeve about the climate controls is on cool days during the fall or spring. If the sun is shining the interior temp might be 76 degrees, but my CC setting is 70 or 72. I want to keep that interior warmth for a while, not cool down the interior immediately to 72 using the AC. In my Bimmer, with a single switch the AC is either on or off. Perfect. On those days, the car stays warm for a while, and when it cools down with driving, the heat will come on as needed and I don't have to do anything (because the AC wasn't turned on in the first place). With my Gen 1 Volt, I have to fiddle around with screens and menus, turn the CC to fan only, then when I start feeling cool, go in again and turn it ECO. I want an AC on/off switch. Is there one in the Gen 2?
