Default help 09 z71 vent controls

Hey i have noticed that when i have everything turned off i still have air coming out of my vents. I am coming from a 05 FULLY LOADED sierra and this was not a problem. Can anyone tell me if this is just the way it is or is there a damper or something that is not totally closing?

Thanks

if this only happens while your driving or when its windy it can be explained by the fact that air is blown into the cabin intake and comes out your vents,

maybe your sierra actually closed off the flow some how, but the 355's do not do this, so you will have some air coming in like that if their is wind or you are driving

Funny thing i have a buddy with an accord and he told me the same thing. He also told me to turn the temp up even with the system off and it would be fine. i dont like it at all. if i dont want te smell of diesel or cow crap in my truck i am outta luck i guess. because even on recirc it must be bringing in a fair about of air from the outside.

no I believe if you turn on recirc then it shuts off the flow from that outside intake, recirc would also stop the air from blowing when its off
