Climate Control System

Using Automatic Climate Control

The automatic climate control system maintains the interior temperature you select. 
The system also selects the proper mix of heated or cooled air that raises or lowers 
the interior temperature to your preference as quickly as possible.

Use the system when the power system is on.

1.

Press the 

AUTO

 button.

2.

Adjust the interior temperature using the temperature control dial.

3.

Press the 

 (ON/OFF) button to cancel.

Using Automatic Climate Control

If any buttons are pressed while using the climate 
control system in auto, the function of the button 
that was pressed will take priority.
The 

AUTO

 indicator will go off, but functions 

unrelated to the button that was pressed will be 
controlled automatically.

To prevent cold air from blowing in from outside, the 
fan may not start immediately when the 

AUTO

 

button is pressed.

If the interior is very warm, you can cool it down 
more rapidly by partially opening the windows, 
turning the system on auto, and setting the 
temperature to low. Change the fresh air mode to 
recirculation mode until the temperature cools down.

When you set the temperature to the lower or upper 
limit, 

Lo

 or 

Hi

 is displayed.

Pressing the 

 button switches the climate 

control system between on and off. When turned on, 
the system returns to your last selection.

While ECON mode is active, the climate control 
system may have reduced cooling performance.
