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 engine is running.
1. Press the AUTO button.
2. Adjust the interior temperature using the temperature control dial.
3. Press the 

 button to cancel.

Switching between the recirculation and fresh air modes

Press the 

 (recirculation) button and switch the mode depending on 

environmental conditions.
Recirculation mode (indicator on): Recirculates air from the vehicle’s interior through 
the system.
Fresh air mode (indicator off): Maintains outside ventilation. Keep the system in 
fresh air mode in normal situations.

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 were pressed will be 
controlled automatically.

During the Auto Idle Stop, the air conditioning 
system will be turned off.
If the ECON mode is selected, the fan may also be 
turned off.

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 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 in ECON mode, the climate control system has 
greater temperature fluctuations.

Defrosting the Windshield and Windows

For your safety, make sure you have a clear view 
through all the windows before driving.

Do not set the temperature near the upper or lower 
limit.
When cold air hits the windshield, the outside of the 
windshield may fog up.

If the side windows fog up, adjust the vents so that 
the air hits the side windows.

1

To rapidly defrost the windows

After defrosting the windows, switch over to fresh air 
mode. If you keep the system in recirculation mode, 
the windows may fog up from humidity. This 
impedes visibility.
