Medical conditions can be a major hindrance to trying to drive. Try driving down the interstate and having your shoulder dislocate while you drive 70 MpH and having to make to to the next rest area before you can relocate your shoulder. Or being so anxious that the person next to you having a bout of road rage sends you into a panic attack. Some people just can't drive, and nor should they.
Umm... A/C doesn't make the air cold. All it does is condition the air, hence the name "air conditioner". Could simply be that the car hadn't had time to heat the engine before she tried to turn the heater on.
Um, what do you think "condition" means? Does it soften the air? Make it smell nice? Clue: The A/C actually does do absolutely nothing other than cool (and thereby dehumidify) air being blown into the car's ventilation system. When it's on and the controls are set to blow air at your feet or from the dashboard vents, it's just cooling the air to the setting you gave it on the temperature control. The "defrost" setting runs the air through the A/C coils to cool and dehumidify it, then routes it through the heater coils to reheat it, and then directs it though the upper vents in the dashboard toward the windscreen so it can evaporate and absorb the condensation on the inside.
#9, Youre partially correct, but have the cause and effect backwards. AC dehumidifies (and cools) because of the refrigerant that's used...regardless of what temp you set it to. It'll dehumidify if you have the AC running at max cool, or if you have the heat cranked up all the way. Dehumidifiers people in some areas have in their homes also use the same refrigerant found in your car AC system.
I thought OP meant she had it set to "cool air" but used the wording A/C. That would explain the daughter's issue with only getting cold air. When I (and people in my area) say air conditioner, we are referring to the cold air, not the actual AC setting (dehumidifier).
