    Do you switch off your aircon?

    Just wondering if you guys switch off your aircon before shutting down the engine?

    I usually shut down the engine without switching off the aircon first.

    Will this shorten the life span of my aircon?

    Kindly advise please.

    Thanks

    I never switch ON the aircon - I kiasi, try to save fuel ... bro CK say one, hehehe. J/K.

    I never bother switching off the aircon before shutdown. Cars are meant to be driven & used (abused). Everytime I say I want to keep a car for x number of months/years, I end up selling it - learnt my lesson liao. Just use. And have fun using it

    I never switch off the aircon since I collected my car new 4 years ago. No issues. Except due to wear and tear, I replaced the fan coil in the 3rd year. Else no other issues.

    Don worry about it.
