Default ac blower speed question

I have noticed on my 12 that with the climate controls both set to auto and the temp at the lowest setting, my blower never runs on high. It doesnt matter what the temp is outside. But i can manually switch it to high and it runs fine. The ol has a 200 and in auto the fan will run high when needed and slow down as needed. So do your guys blowers ever run high in auto?

Can anyone help me out? I have an appt set at the dealer, I assume the ram climate system is very similar to her 200's and is not functioning properly.

Does your owners manual describe how auto works? I don't know mine is manual. I had truck for over a month and finally noticed if you turn temp knob past max cool it goes into recirculate instead of having to push the fan speed knob.

Your fan should adjust to how much air you need automatically from the inside temp vs outside. It will not go on high if outside is 78 and inside is 76. If it is 90 outside and you want it to be 68 then yes your fan should go on high to bring down the temp - once it reaches that temp no it will not go on high.

Just so you know - the air conditioning will come on as needed. Also air conditioning comes on when using defrost as well (on windsheild) -Uses more gas

I figured it out. In auto it will not run on high speed if the dual climate is not low enough and synced.
