The automatic climate control system in your vehicle maintains the interior temperature you select. The system also adjusts the fan speed and airflow levels.

1. Press the Auto button. The indicator in the button also comes on as a reminder. You will see AUTO on the display (in the center display on models with navigation system).

2. Set the desired temperature with the temperature control switch.

You can set the driver’s side temperature and the passenger’s side temperature separately.

The system automatically selects the proper mix of conditioned and/or heated air that will, as quickly as possible, raise or lower the interior temperature to your preference.

Temperature Control

The driver’s side temperature and the passenger’s side temperature can be set separately. Push up the switch of the appropriate temperature control to increase the temperature of airflow. Push down the switch to decrease it. Each set temperature is shown in the display (in the center display on models with navigation system).

When you set the temperature to its lower limit ( (  ), the system runs at full ) or its upper limit ( cooling or heating only. It does not ), the system runs at full cooling or heating only. It does not regulate the interior temperature.

When you adjust a fan control, the fan is taken out of AUTO mode.

On models with navigation system

In AUTO mode, the vehicle’s interior temperature is independently regulated for the driver and front passenger according to each adjusted temperature. The system also regulates each temperature based on the information of the sunlight sensor and the sun’s position which is updated automatically by the navigation’s global positioning system (GPS). If one side of the vehicle is getting too much sun, the system lowers the temperature only on that side.

SYNC Button

When you press this button, the indicator in the button comes on, and the passenger’s side temperature is synchronized to the driver’s side set temperature. Changing the passenger’s side temperature makes the indicator go off and takes the system out of SYNC mode.

ON/OFF Button

Each time you press this button, the climate control system switches between on and off. Turning on the system with this button selects your last climate control selection.
