Automatic climate control system (if equipped)

Although this climate control system can be used as a full-automatic climate control system, it can also, if desired, be used as a semi-automatic climate control system.

When it is used as a full-automatic climate control system, the outlet air temperature, fan speed, airflow distribution, air inlet control, and air conditioner compressor operation are all automatically controlled to maintain a constant, comfortable temperature inside the vehicle.

NOTE
Operate the automatic climate control system when the engine is running.

When the engine coolant is cold, the blower does not run.

In the AUTO mode, when the air temperature in the passenger compartment is sufficiently cool, the air conditioner compressor does not operate.

For efficient defogging or dehumidifying in cold weather, press the A/C button to operate the air conditioner compressor.
