CLIMATE CONTROL

WARNING

Do not adjust the touchscreen controls, or allow the system to distract the driver, while the vehicle is moving. Driver distraction can lead to accidents, potentially causing serious injury or death.

WARNING

In the interest of safety, only operate or adjust the system when it is safe to do so.

To access the CLIMATE screen, select Climate from the HOME screen. See TOUCHSCREEN HOME MENU. Alternatively, press the climate button located below the touchscreen, or touch the CLIMATE soft key in EXTRA FEATURES. See EXTRA FEATURES.

Control the climate as follows:

  1. Air distribution to the feet icon: Touch to switch on or off.

  2. Air distribution to the face icon: Touch to switch on or off.

  3. Air distribution to the front windshield icon: Touch to switch on or off.

  4. External temperature display.

    NOTES

    When the external temperature is low enough that ice may be present on the road, an amber snowflake warning lamp illuminates in the Instrument panel. See EXTERNAL TEMPERATURE (AMBER).

  5. Air ionization icon: Touch to activate air ionization. The mode can only be activated when air distribution to the face mode has been selected. Selection of AUTO mode deactivates the air ionization mode.

  6. Sync soft key: Press or touch to synchronize the passenger climate settings to the driver's settings.

  7. Power icon: Touch to switch the climate control system on or off.

  8. Settings icon: Touch to access the SETTINGS pop-up menu and then select Climate Settings. See CLIMATE SETTINGS.

  9. Recirculation: Select to recirculate air inside the vehicle.

    Press briefly to select timed recirculation. Recirculation switches off automatically after a set time, dependent on the ambient temperature.

    Press and hold to select latched recirculation. Recirculation remains on until the button is pressed again.

    NOTES

    Prolonged use at low temperatures may cause the windows to fog.

  10. A/C button: Press to switch the Air Conditioning (A/C) system on or off. The A/C system can be switched on or off independently of the other climate control functions.

  11. MAX A/C button: Press to switch the maximum A/C mode on or off.

  12. Press to select the Heated or Climate seat screen on the touchscreen. See HEATED SEATS and CLIMATE SEATS.

  13. CLIMATE button: Press to access the Climate screen.

  14. AUTO button: Press to switch automatic mode on or off. Dependent on the vehicle’s specification, the various options for AUTO mode can be set via the CLIMATE SETTINGS menu. See CLIMATE SETTINGS.

    NOTES

    AUTO mode is the recommended normal operating mode. In AUTO mode, the system regulates cabin climate based on feedback from the vehicle’s sensors, helping maintain a stable and comfortable cabin environment.

    NOTES

    When a climate setting is adjusted manually the system exits full AUTO mode, this overrides automatic climate adjustment and delivers only the selected settings.

  15. MAX button: Press to switch maximum defrost for the windshield on or off.

    NOTES

    In low temperatures, it is advisable to close the center face-level vent and direct air flow from the outer face-level vents toward the side windows. Directing air flow toward the side windows helps to keep the side windows clear of ice.

  16. Heated windshield button: Press to switch on or off. If left on, it deactivates after a timed period, dependent on the outside temperature.

    CAUTION

    Do not attach labels to the windshield. Do not scrape or use abrasive materials to clean the inside of the windshield.

    NOTES

    The heated windshield operates only when the engine is running.

    NOTES

    In cold ambient conditions, the windshield heater switches on automatically when the engine is started. This function can be switched on or off via Climate Settings. See CLIMATE SETTINGS.

  17. Heated rear window button: Press to switch on or off. If left on, it deactivates after a timed period, dependent on the outside temperature.

    CAUTION

    Do not attach labels to the rear window. Do not scrape or use abrasive materials to clean the inside of the rear window.

    NOTES

    The heated rear window operates only when the engine is running.

    NOTES

    In cold ambient conditions, the rear window heater switches on automatically when the engine is started. This function can be switched on or off via Climate Settings. See CLIMATE SETTINGS.

  18. Rotary controls: Rotate to adjust the cabin or seat temperature.

  19. Press to switch between cabin temperature control and front seat temperature control. See HEATED SEATS and CLIMATE SEATS.

  20. Blower speed: Rotate to adjust the blower speed. The blower speed is automatically set in AUTO mode. Adjusting the blower speed cancels AUTO mode. With the blower speed set at minimum, rotate the control counter-clockwise to switch the climate control system off.

  21. Power: Press to switch the climate control system on or off.

NOTES

Some of the buttons have an LED indicator lamp that illuminates to confirm selection.

NOTES

Some functions are not available on all vehicles.

NOTES

If the climate control system is switched off, pressing an AUTO button or the defrost button switches the climate control system on.

NOTES

Water expelled by the A/C system may collect underneath the vehicle when parked. This is not a cause for concern.
