When I start my car and keep for heating, sometimes I hear a noise of trip and compressor starts, and clutch (below the belt) also start rotating.
Is this normal even if AC buttons are oFF in the car.

This is not normal for your vehicle according to specifications as stated in our database. If the A/C switch is not turned on, the compressor should not engage.

Whether manual or automatic system, the A/C compressor gets its power supply from the A/C compressor relay and there are 3 possibilities for the relay to be energised.
1. Faulty relay. It is self triggering intermittently and contacting to provide power to the compressor. Try swapping out the compressor relay with the fog light relay and see if problem goeas away.
2. A short in the grounding circuit of the compressor relay. You would need to test orange wire for shorting.
3. Faulty PCM. It is grounding the relay intermittently.
