To avoid affecting the performance of the airconditioning system:
Defrosting the windshield
AC OFF – switching compressor for airconditioning system on and off
The air-conditioning compressor switches off automatically at temperatures below approx. 37 °F/3 °C and cannot be switched on, even manually.
Whenever outside temperatures exceed approx. 37 °F/3 °C, the air-conditioning compressor is always switched on in automatic mode.
The compressor can be switched off to save fuel, but control comfort is then limited:
To dry incoming air in damp weather, do not switch off the air-conditioning compressor. This prevents fogging of windows.
Adjusting blower speed
The speed stages are indicated by a bar display.
If the button is pressed downwards at the lowest blower stage, the blower and automatic control are switched off. "OFF" will appear on the display field.
Pressing the button upwards or pressing the AUTO button switches the blower and automatic control back on again.
Recirculating-Air Setting Impairing Vision
In recirculating-air setting, the windows may fog up.
Switching recirculating-air setting on or off
Over approx. 37 °F/3 °C
If the air-conditioning compressor was off, it switches on automatically. The duration of recirculating- air setting is not limited.
Below approx. 37 °F/3 °C
The air-conditioning compressor is switched off.
Recirculating-air setting is automatically ended after approx. 3 minutes.
