Control Switches

Temperature control dial

This dial controls temperature. Turn it clockwise for hot and counterclockwise for cold.

NOTE

When the mode is set to image, image or a position in between them with the fan control dial in a position other than 0 and the temperature control dial in the maximum cold position, the air intake selector switches to the recirculated air position and the A/C turns on automatically.

If A/C is not desired, press the A/C switch to turn it off.

Fan control dial

This dial allows variable fan speeds. The fan has seven speeds.

Mode selector dial

Turn the mode selector dial to select airflow mode (page 5-6).

NOTE

image

image

- The mode selector dial can be set at the intermediate positions ( ) between each mode. Set the dial to an intermediate position if you want to split the airflow between the two modes.

image

image

- For example, when the mode selector dial is at the position between the and image positions, airflow from the floor vent is less than that of the image position.

WARNING

image

Do not defog the windshield using the position with the temperature control set to the cold position:

image

Using the position with the temperature control set to the cold position is dangerous as it will cause the outside of the windshield to fog up. Your vision will be hampered, which could lead to a serious accident. Set the temperature control to the hot or warm position when using the

image

position.


NOTE

- For maximum defrosting, turn on the air conditioner, set the temperature control dial to the extreme hot position, and turn the fan control dial fully clockwise.

- If warm air is desired at the floor, set the mode selector dial to the image position.

- In the image or image position, the air conditioner is automatically turned on and the outside air position is automatically selected to defrost the windshield. In the image or image position, the outside air position cannot be changed to the recirculated air position.

Dehumidifying

Operate the air conditioner in cool or cold weather to help defog the windshield and side windows.

1. Set the mode selector dial to the desired position.

2. Set the air intake selector to the outside air position (indicator light turns off).

image


image

3. Set the temperature control dial to the desired position.

4. Set the fan control dial to the desired speed.

5. Turn on the air conditioner by pressing the A/C switch.

NOTE

One of the functions of the air conditioner is dehumidifying the air and, to use this function, the temperature does not have to be set to cold. Therefore, set the temperature control dial to the desired position (hot or cold) and turn on the air conditioner when you want to dehumidify the cabin air.
