I have read other threads that came to the conclusion that this wasn't possible.

The wiring isn't present, not just for the thermostat but there are several temoerature sensors as well. These tell the thermostat where to send the heat/cooling.

It wasn't one of the things on my list when I bought the truck, the truck I bought just happened to have it.

I couldn't be happier, just set it to 72 and leave it alone.
Really nice feature.

Really nice feature.
I have the ATC in my 11 Sport as well. I'm not sure it is working correctly.
I expected that it would turn AC on or off as required. I find I have to turn on the AC myself by pushing the button.
It work's fine when in the heating mode.
Is this normal operation?
The dealer says it is, but I don't always believe them.
