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

(Floor): Air is directed to the floor outlets, with some to the windshield, side window outlets, 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.

(Defog): This mode clears the windows of fog or moisture. Air is directed to the windshield, floor outlets, and side window vents. In this mode, the system turns off recirculation and runs the air conditioning compressor unless the outside temperature is close to freezing. The recirculation mode cannot be selected while in the defrost mode. (Floor): Air is directed to the floor outlets, with some to the windshield, side window outlets, and second row floor outlets.

On hot days, open the windows long enough to let hot inside air escape.

This helps to reduce the time it takes for the vehicle to cool down.

It also helps the system to operate more efficiently.

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

This mode recirculates and helps to quickly cool the air inside the vehicle. It can be used to help prevent outside air and odors from entering the vehicle. (Recirculation): Press to turn the recirculation mode on. An indicator light comes on to show that recirculation is on.

While in recirculation mode, the windows may fog when the weather is cold and damp. To clear the fog, select either the defog or defrost mode and increase the fan speed.

The recirculation mode can be turned off by pressing the outside air button, or by turning off the ignition.

Rear Window Defogger (Outside Air): Press to turn the outside air mode on. An indicator light on the button comes on to show that outside is on. When selected, air from outside the vehicle circulates throughout the vehicle. The recirculation mode cannot be used with the outside air mode.
