Recirculate issues with Climate Control

When I am not in 'AUTO' mode and hit the recirculate button, there are definitely exhaust fumes and other exterior odors still coming through. Any one else having similar issues? When I switch it to 'AUTO' (with 'High Sensitivity' for Air Quality chosen) the fumes are greatly reduced, but not entirely eliminated. I notice that in AUTO the recirculate light never illuminates, is this the way it should be?

I also live in a rural area and like to hit the recirculate at night time to minimize the chances of a mouse intrusion, but I need to know that it actually works.

Thanks for your assistance.

iirc there are grates at the inlets that will keep your critters out regardless. However i haven't noticed anything like that. I do believe the recirc light does NOT illuminate that i've noticed on full auto. I run low sensitivity on the climate control when i'm driving usually.

That's good to know, although there was allegedly decent screening to keep critters out of my Tacoma truck, as well, but the critters still found their way into a nice spot above the HVAC blower fan. Three years later and still.... a smell lingers
