the way counterclockwise to turn the front climate control system off. (Off): Turn the fan control all the way counterclockwise to turn the front climate control system off.

Temperature Control: Turn clockwise or counterclockwise to increase or decrease the temperature of the air flowing from the system. (Fan Control): Turn clockwise or counterclockwise to increase or decrease the fan speed.

Temperature Control: Turn clockwise or counterclockwise to increase or decrease the temperature of the air flowing from the system.

Air Delivery Mode Control:

Turn clockwise or counterclockwise to change the current airflow mode.

By positioning the right knob between two modes, a combination of those two modes is selected.

(Bi-Level): Air is divided between the instrument panel and floor outlets. Some air is directed toward the windshield and side window outlets. Cooler air is directed to the upper outlets and warmer air to the floor outlets. (Vent): Air is directed to the instrument panel outlets.

(Floor): Air is directed to the floor outlets, with some of the air directed to the windshield, side window, and second row floor outlets. In this mode, the system automatically selects outside air. (Bi-Level): Air is divided between the instrument panel and floor outlets. Some air is directed toward the windshield and side window outlets. Cooler air is directed to the upper outlets and warmer air to the floor outlets.

Recirculation cannot be selected while in floor mode. (Floor): Air is directed to the floor outlets, with some of the air directed to the windshield, side window, and second row floor outlets. In this mode, the system automatically selects outside air.

Recirculation cannot be selected while in floor mode.

When this mode is selected, the system turns off recirculation and runs the air conditioning unless the outside temperature is less than 4°C (40°F). Recirculation cannot be selected while in the defog mode. (Defog): This clears the windows of fog or moisture. Air is directed to the windshield, floor outlets, and side window vents.

When this mode is selected, the system turns off recirculation and runs the air conditioning unless the outside temperature is less than 4°C (40°F). Recirculation cannot be selected while in the defog mode.

Do not drive the vehicle until all the windows are clear.

The air conditioning system runs automatically in this setting, unless the outside temperature is less than 4°C (40°F). Do not drive the vehicle until all windows are clear. (Defrost): This clears the windshield of fog or frost more quickly. Air is directed to the windshield and side window vents, with some to the floor vents. In this mode, outside air is pulled inside the vehicle. Recirculation cannot be selected while in the defrost mode.

The air conditioning system runs automatically in this setting, unless the outside temperature is less than 4°C (40°F). Do not drive the vehicle until all windows are clear.

The air conditioning system does not operate when the outside temperature is below 4°C (40°F). (Air Conditioning): Press to turn the air conditioning system on or off. An indicator light comes on when A/C is on.

The air conditioning system does not operate when the outside temperature is below 4°C (40°F).

The indicator light flashes three times and turns off when outside conditions affect air conditioning operation. This is normal.

For quicker cool down on hot days:
1. Open the windows to let hot air escape.
2. Select 3. Select . mode.
3. Select 4. Select the coolest temperature..
4. Select the coolest temperature.
5. Select the highest fan speed.
6. Close the windows after the hot air has escaped.
7. Once the vehicle's interior temperature is below the outside temperature, select Using recirculation for long periods of time could cause the air inside the vehicle to become too dry. mode for faster cooling.

Using recirculation for long periods of time could cause the air inside the vehicle to become too dry.

To prevent this from happening, after the inside of the vehicle has cooled, turn the recirculation mode off.

The air conditioning system removes moisture from the air, so water might drip under the vehicle while idling or after turning off the engine. This is normal.

An indicator light comes on when recirculation is on. When the engine is turned off, the recirculation mode automatically turns off and must be re-selected when the engine is turned on again. (Recirculation): Press to turn the recirculation mode on or off.

An indicator light comes on when recirculation is on. When the engine is turned off, the recirculation mode automatically turns off and must be re-selected when the engine is turned on again.

This mode recirculates and helps to quickly cool the air inside the vehicle. It can be used to prevent outside air and odors from entering the vehicle.

The recirculation mode cannot be used with floor, defrost, or defogging modes. If recirculation is selected in these modes, the indicator flashes three times and turns off. The air conditioning also comes on when this mode is activated unless the outside air temperature is less than 4°C (40°F). While in recirculation mode the windows can fog when the weather is cold and damp.

To clear the fog, select either the defog or defrost mode and increase the fan speed.

REAR (Rear Climate Control):

Press to turn the rear heating and air conditioning on or off. See Rear Climate Control System (Rear Climate Control Only) on page 8‑10 or Rear Climate Control System (Rear Climate with Rear Seat Audio) on page 8‑11.
