Using Automatic Climate Control

The automatic climate control system in your vehicle maintains the interior temperature you select. The system also adjusts the fan speed and airflow levels.

1. Press the AUTO button.

2. Set the desired temperature by turning the driver’s side temperature control dial. You will see AUTO and the selected temperature in the display. You can also set the passenger’s side temperature by turning the passenger’s side dial.

The system automatically selects the proper mix of conditioned and/or heated air that will, as quickly as possible, raise or lower the interior temperature to your preference.

Temperature Control

The driver’s side temperature and the passenger’s side temperature can be set separately. Turn the dial of the appropriate temperature control clockwise to increase the temperature of airflow. Turn the dial counterclockwise to decrease it.

Each set temperature is shown in the display.

When you set the temperature to its lower limit ( ( ) or its upper limit
( cooling or heating only. It does not ), the system runs at full
cooling or heating only. It does not regulate the interior temperature.

When the indicator in the dual button is on, the driver’s side and passenger’s side temperature can be controlled independently.

Dual Button

You can set the temperatures for the driver’s side and the passenger’s side separately when this button is pressed (indicator is on). When the indicator in the DUAL button is off, the temperatures for both sides are synchronized to the driver’s side set temperature. When defrost mode is selected, dual mode operation is canceled.
