So this is just my mini doing it. I have to take it for an inspection to my dealer.Mine stays where I leave it. In terms of power don't forget if air con is on auto you still set fan speed ie if you have it on half that's the max the fan will blow at. In terms of recirculation mine stays where I set it!
I've turned mine off but not sure what the recirculation button does when on? When the auto button is selected on climate control it also turns on a/c so turned this off and thought better turn the A and M recirculation off too.Make sure we are talking about hte same thing; i mean the a/m recirc switch on the flat switches panel below the heater controls just above theusb and 12v ports! one press-a lit another press m lit and another press no light-and therefore recirc is off. YEs mine stays wehrer you leave it-if however you put the aircon on the recirc light is activated! hope that helps and that might be your issue; all my references are with aircon off! J
