Off: Press the driver side temperature knob to turn the climate control system off. Outside air still enters the vehicle, and is directed to the floor. This direction can be changed by pressing the mode button. The temperature can also be adjusted using either temperature knob. Press the up or down arrows on the fan switch, the defrost button, the AUTO button, driver side temperature knob, or the air conditioning button to turn the system on when it is off.

Driver and Passenger Side Temperature Knob

The driver and passenger side temperature knobs are used to adjust the temperature of the air coming through the system on the driver or passenger side of the vehicle. The temperature can be adjusted even if the system is turned off. This is possible since outside air always flows through the system as the vehicle is moving forward unless it is set to recirculation mode. See “Recirculation” later in this section.

Turn the knob clockwise or counterclockwise to increase or decrease the cabin temperature. The display will show the temperature setting increasing or decreasing.

Set the passenger temperature setting to match the driver temperature setting by pressing the passenger temperature knob.

When in defrost mode the passenger temperature setting cannot be changed.
