Pre-heating or pre-cooling the interior of the vehicle

Models with automatic climate control system:

After the system starts the engine, the automatic climate control system will activate the “FULL AUTO” mode and heat or cool the interior to the predetermined median (room) temperature. No presetting of controls is necessary.

Models with manual climate control system:

Before exiting the vehicle, set the temperature controls to the desired setting and operation. After the system starts the engine, the heater or air conditioning will activate and heat or cool the interior to your setting.
