Note: To use the touchscreen controls, see the Touchscreen climate controls


Note

: To use the touchscreen controls, see the Touchscreen climate controls in the Navigation System chapter.

A. CLIMATE: Control the system through the touchscreen display.

See Touchscreen functions later in this section.

B. Rear defrost: Turns the heated windows and mirrors off and on.

See Heated windows and mirrors later in this chapter for more information. If your vehicle is equipped with heated mirrors, this button turns them on also.

C. A/C: Press to turn air conditioning off and on. Air conditioning cools the vehicle using outside air. To improve air conditioning when starting your vehicle, drive with the windows slightly open for two to three minutes.

Use air conditioning with recirculated air to improve cooling performance and efficiency.

Note

: Air conditioning turns on automatically in MAX A/C, Defrost and Floor/Defrost.

D. Passenger temperature control: Press to increase or decrease the air temperature on the passenger side of the vehicle.

E. Passenger heated seat control (if equipped): Turn the passenger heated seat off and on. See Heated seats in the Seats chapter for more information.

F. Recirculated air: Press to switch between outside air and recirculated air. When the LED on the button illuminates, the air currently in the passenger compartment recirculates. Using recirculated air can reduce the time needed to cool the interior and reduce unwanted odors from entering your vehicle.

Note

: Recirculated air engages automatically when you select MAX A/C or if you turn it on manually in any airflow mode except Defrost.

G. Fan speed control: Press + or - to increase or decrease the volume of air circulated in your vehicle.

H. AUTO: Press to turn on fully automatic operation. Select the desired temperature using the temperature control. The system automatically determines fan speed, air distribution, A/C operation, and outside or recirculated air, to heat or cool the vehicle to maintain the selected temperature.

I. Driver temperature control: Press to increase or decrease the air temperature on the driver side of the vehicle.

This control also adjusts the passenger side temperature when dual zone operation is disengaged.

J. Driver heated seat control (if equipped): Turn the driver heated seat off and on. See Heated seats in the Seats chapter for more information.

K. Power: Press to turn the climate control system off and on. When the system is off, outside air cannot enter the vehicle.

The system status in the touchscreen also turns off. When you turn the power back on, the system returns to fully automatic control.

L. Defrost: Distributes air through the windshield defroster vents and demister vents. You can also use this setting to defog and clear the windshield of a thin covering of ice.
