: The Car/Key Memory feature on the MY99 does include climate control settings. This is a Key Memory feature, and, unfortunately, it is the only Key Memory feature that cannot be disabled. I think the time dependency (i.e. ~16 minutes) remains, but the climate control settings will go to the last associated with the Key in use.

: This may not change anything with regards to what you are saying - except that "after sleep" it may revert to the settings given to the next used Key, as opposed to a single setting remembered for the car.

Good Point - Thanks Brad.

I keep forgetting that my 97 is "too old" to use as a test bench for some faults on newer models.

For clarity - my car has an updated climate control unit with a 1999 software version - so the only difference should be the car/key memory issue.
