Dual automatic temperature control system (with sony® audio system)

Note: You can switch temperature units between Fahrenheit and Celsius.

Note: You can switch temperature units between Fahrenheit and Celsius.

See Menu features in the MyFord Touch or MyLincoln Touch chapter.

A. CLIMATE: Press to turn the climate control system off and on. When the system is off, outside air cannot enter the vehicle.
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. 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.
D. 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.
E. 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.

F. 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.
G. 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.

Note: For better cooling in hot conditions, recirculated air automatically engages Panel or Panel/Floor modes and the air conditioning is on. You can switch to fresh air by pressing the recirculated air button again.

H. DUAL: Allows the passenger to set their temperature independent of the driver temperature.
I. Passenger temperature control: Press + or - to increase or decrease the air temperature on the passenger side of the vehicle when in dual zone mode.
J. Fan speed control: Press + or - to increase or decrease the volume of air circulated in your vehicle.
K. Driver temperature control: Press + or - to increase or decrease the air temperature inside the vehicle.

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

Dual automatic temperature control system (with mytemp)

Note: You can switch temperature units between Fahrenheit and Celsius.

See Settings in the MyFord Touch or MyLincoln Touch chapter.

A. MyTemp: Allows you to quickly adjust to a frequently used setting with a single touch.

Press + and - to increase and decrease the temperature.

Touch and hold MyTemp to save the current temperature. To access the setting again, touch the MyTemp indicator again.
B. Power/Fan speed control: Press to turn the system off and on.

When the system is off, outside air cannot enter the vehicle.

Turn to increase or decrease the fan speed.
C. DUAL: Allows the passenger to set their temperature independent of the driver temperature.
D. 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.

E. 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.
F. 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.

G. 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.

H. 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.

I. 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.

GENERAL OPERATING TIPS

Manual Heating and Air Conditioning System

• To reduce fog build-up on the windshield during humid weather, select Defrost. Temperature and fan speed can also be increased to improve clearing.
• To reduce humidity build-up inside the vehicle, do not drive with the system off or with recirculated air engaged.
• Do not put objects under the front seats that will interfere with the airflow to the back seats.
• Remove any snow, ice or leaves from the air intake area at the base of the windshield.
• To improve the A/C cool down, drive with the windows slightly open for 2-3 minutes after start-up or until the vehicle has been aired out.
• A small amount of air may be felt from the floor vent regardless of the air distribution setting that is selected.

During extreme high ambient temperatures when idling stationary for extended periods of time in gear, it is recommended to run the A/C in the MAX A/C mode, adjust the blower fan speed to the lowest setting and put the vehicle’s transmission into position P (vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission) to continue to receive cool air from your A/C system.

For maximum cooling performance in A/C mode, press MAX A/C.

For maximum cooling performance in panel or panel/floor modes:

1. Move temperature control to the coolest setting.
2. Select A/C and recirculated air to provide colder airflow.
3. Set the fan to the highest speed initially, then adjust to maintain comfort.

To aid in side window defogging and demisting in cold or humid weather:

1. Select Floor/Panel.
2. Select A/C.
3. Adjust the temperature control to maintain comfort.
4. Set the fan speed to the highest setting.
5. Direct the outer instrument panel vents toward the side windows.
6. To increase airflow to the outer instrument panel vents, close the vents located in the middle of the instrument panel.
