When I start my 97 es300 the climate control is not on until I turn it on. Is that normal? I just bought this car. It did not come with a fob but I see a round turnable knob on the lower drivers kick pannel I am guessing is aftermarket. Being a 97 there isnt a transponder chip, I think. Im thinking of putting in a remote start, its possible that it already has one but my question... Is it normal for the climate control to be off unless the AUTO button is pressed or turned on? Is there a way for it to be turned on when the car is started?
