    NOTES

    AUTO mode is the recommended normal operating mode. In AUTO mode, the system regulates cabin climate based on feedback from the vehicle’s sensors, helping maintain a stable and comfortable cabin environment.

    When a climate setting is adjusted manually the system exits full AUTO mode, this overrides automatic climate adjustment and delivers only the selected settings.

NOTES

Some of the buttons have an LED indicator lamp that illuminates to confirm selection.

NOTES

If the climate control system is switched off, pressing the AUTO button or the defrost button switches the climate control system on.

NOTES

Water expelled by the A/C system may collect underneath the vehicle, when parked. The expelled water is not a cause for concern.
