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

Turn to increase or decrease the air temperature for the driver side of the vehicle.

This control also adjusts the passenger side temperature when dual zone operation is disengaged.
B. 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.
C. Air distribution control: Press to set the air distribution to a position listed below:

D. 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 A/C with recirculated air to improve cooling performance and efficiency.

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

E. Recirculated air: Press to switch between outside air and recirculated air. When the LED on the button is lit, the air currently in the passenger compartment is being recirculated. 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 MAX A/C is selected or can be turned on manually in any airflow mode except Defrost.

F. PASS TEMP: Press and turn to increase or decrease the air temperature on the passenger side of the vehicle.
G. MAX A/C: Distributes recirculated air through the instrument panel vents to cool the vehicle. This position is more economical and efficient than normal A/C.
H. Fan speed control: Press + or - to increase or decrease the volume of air circulated in your vehicle.
I. Heated seat controls (if equipped): Turn the driver or passenger heated seats off and on. See Heated seats in the Seats chapter for more information.
J. 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.
K. Defrost: Distributes air through the windshield defroster vents and demister vents. This setting can also be used to defog and clear the windshield of a thin covering of ice.
