4. A/C: Press to activate/deactivate air conditioning. Use with recirculated air to improve cooling performance and efficiency. A/C engages automatically in MAX A/C, (defrost) (defrost) and (floor/defrost). (floor/defrost).

5. AUTO: Press to engage automatic temperature control. Select the desired temperature using the temperature control. The system will automatically determine fan speed, airflow location, A/C on or off, and outside or recirculated air, to heat or cool the vehicle to reach the desired temperature.

6. MAX A/C: Distributes recirculated air through the instrument panel vents to cool the vehicle. This re-cooling of the interior air is more economical and efficient. Recirculated air may also help reduce undesirable odors from entering the vehicle. Press the MAX A/C button again for normal A/C operation.

7. Recirculated air: Press to activate/deactivate air recirculation in Recirculated air: Press to activate/deactivate air recirculation in the vehicle. Recirculated air may reduce the amount of time needed to cool down the interior of the vehicle and, when used with A/C, may also help reduce undesired odors from reaching the interior of the vehicle.

Recirculated air engages automatically when MAX A/C is selected or can be engaged manually in any airflow mode except (defrost). (defrost).

Recirculated air may turn off automatically in all airflow modes except MAX A/C.

(panel/floor).

8. PASS TEMP (passenger temperature): Press to engage/disengage separate passenger side temperature control. Turn to increase/decrease the air temperature on the passenger side of the vehicle. The recommended initial setting is between 72F (22C) and 75F (24C), then adjust for comfort. The passenger side temperature setting will appear in the upper right corner of the display.

9. Passenger heated seat: Press to activate/deactivate the Passenger heated seat: Press to activate/deactivate the passenger heated seat. Refer to Heated and cooled seats in the Seating and Safety Restraints chapter for more information.

10. Passenger cooled seat: Press to activate/deactivate the Passenger cooled seat: Press to activate/deactivate the passenger cooled seat. Refer to Heated and cooled seats in the Seating and Safety Restraints chapter for more information.

12. Driver heated seat: Press to activate/deactivate the driver Driver heated seat: Press to activate/deactivate the driver heated seat. Refer to Heated and cooled seats in the Seating and Safety Restraints chapter for more information.

13. Power/Driver temperature: Press to activate/deactivate the Power/Driver temperature: Press to activate/deactivate the climate control system. When the system is off, outside air is prevented from entering the vehicle. Turn to increase/decrease the air temperature on the driver side of the vehicle. The control also adjusts the passenger side temperature when PASS TEMP is disengaged. The recommended initial setting is between 72F (22C) and 75F (24C), then adjust for comfort. The driver side temperature setting will appear in the upper left corner of the display.

14. Rear defroster: Press to activate/deactivate the rear window Rear defroster: Press to activate/deactivate the rear window defroster. This button will also activate/deactivate the heated mirrors (if equipped). Refer to Rear window defroster later in this chapter for more information.

15.  Fan speed control: Press to decrease the fan speed. Fan speed control: Press to decrease the fan speed.

Outside temperature: The outside temperature will appear in the display and is labeled as EXT TEMP.

Temperature conversion: To switch between Fahrenheit and Celsius, refer to Message center in the Instrument Cluster chapter.
