Automatic operation

Cooling and/or dehumidified heating (AUTO):

This mode may be used all year round. The system works automatically to control the inside temperature, air flow distribution and fan speed after the preferred temperature is set manually. 1. Push the “AUTO” button on. (The indicator on the button will illuminate and AUTO will be displayed.)
2. Turn the temperature control dial (driver side) to set the desired temperature.

► The temperature can be set within the following range. — For U.S.: 60 to 908F
— For Canada: 18 to 328C

► The temperature of the passenger compartment will be maintained automatically. Air flow distribution and fan speed will also be controlled automatically. 3. You can individually set driver and front passenger side temperature using each temperature control button. When the “DUAL” button is pushed or the passenger side temperature control button is turned, the DUAL indicator will come on. To turn off the passenger side temperature control, push the “DUAL” button. 4. To turn off the climate control system, push the “OFF” button. A visible mist may be seen coming from the ventilators in hot, humid conditions as the air is cooled rapidly. This does not indicate a malfunction.

Heating (A/C OFF):

The air conditioner does not activate in this mode. When you need to heat only, use this mode. 1. Push the “AUTO” button on. 2. Push the “A/C” button. (The A/C indicator will turn off.)

3. Turn the temperature control dial to set the desired temperature.
► The temperature of the passenger compartment will be maintained automatically. Air flow distribution and fan speed are also controlled automatically.
► Do not set the temperature lower than the outside air temperature. Otherwise the system may not work properly.
► Not recommended if windows fog up.

Dehumidified defrosting or defogging:

1. Push the “button. ” front defroster button. (The indicator light on the button will illuminate.). 2. Turn the temperature control dial to set the desired temperature.
► To quickly remove ice from the outside of the windows, push the fan speed increase button “ the” and set it to the maximum position.

► When the “ button” front defroster button is pushed, the air conditioner will automatically be turned on at outside temperatures above 23F (−5C) to defog the windshield, and the air recirculate mode will automatically be turned off. Outside air is drawn into the passenger compartment to improve the defogging performance.

Manual operation

Fan speed control:

Push the fan speed increase “ or” or decrease “control ” buttons to manually control the fan speed. Push the “AUTO” button to return to automatic control of the fan speed.

Air flow control:

Pushing the “MODE” manual air flow control button selects the air outlet to:

ventilators.: Air flows from center and side ventilators.
ventilators and: Air flows from center and side ventilators and foot outlets.
outlets.: Air flows mainly from foot outlets.
outlets.: Air flows from defroster and foot outlets.

Air recirculation:

Push the intake air control button to recirculate interior air inside the vehicle. The indicator light on the “button will ” button will illuminate. The air recirculation mode cannot be activated when the air conditioner is in the front defrosting mode “ Outside air circulation:”.

Outside air circulation:

Push the intake air control button to draw outside air into the passenger compartment. The indicator light on the “ button will turn off and “ ” (if so” button will turn off and “equipped) will illuminate. ” (if so equipped) will illuminate.

Automatic intake air control:

In the AUTO mode, the intake air will be controlled automatically. To manually control the intake air, push the intake air control button.

► Without Advanced Climate Control System (ACCS): To return to the automatic control mode, push the intake air control button for about 2 seconds. The indicator lights (both air recirculation “ “ ” buttons) will flash twice, and” and outside air circulation “ then the intake air will be controlled” buttons) will flash twice, and then the intake air will be controlled automatically.
► With Advanced Climate Control System (ACCS): To return to the automatic control mode, push the intake air control button until the indicator light on the “ Climate Control System (ACCS)” button illuminates. The Advanced Climate Control System (ACCS) turns on and the intake air will be controlled automatically.

Turning the system off

Push the OFF button.

Upper vent system

When the upper vent “pushed, the air flow against the driver’s ” button is pushed, the air flow against the driver’s or passenger’s upper body becomes gentle. The indicator light on the button will illuminate. In this mode, air from the upper ventilator flows in order to control the cabin temperature without blowing air directly on the occupants. Push the upper vent “you want the air conditioner to work ” button when you want the air conditioner to work quickly. To turn the system off, push the upper vent “ light off.” button to turn the indicator light off.

Advanced Climate Control System (ACCS) (if so equipped)

The Advanced Climate Control System (ACCS) keeps the air inside of the vehicle clean, using the ion control and the automatic air intake control with exhaust gas detecting sensor.


Ion control:

This unit generates highly concentrated Plasmacluster® ions into the air blown from the ventilators and reduces odor absorbed into the interior trim. The high-density Plasmacluster® ions generated in the air conditioner’s air stream not only suppress airborne bacteria and reduce the adherence of odors to the interior trim, but also have a proven skin moisture preserving effect. When the air conditioner is turned on, the system generates Plasmacluster® ions automatically. The amount of Plasmacluster® ions increases according to the amount of air flow. When the air flow is high, “ is” is displayed on the screen and when the air flow is low, the indication in the screen changes to “Plasmacluster® and Plasmacluster® ion ”. Plasmacluster® and Plasmacluster® ion are registered trademarks of Sharp Corporation.

Exhaust gas/outside odor detection sensor:

This vehicle is equipped with an exhaust gas detection sensor. When the automatic intake air control is ON, the sensor detects industry odors such as pulp or chemicals, and exhaust gas such as gasoline or diesel. When such odors or gas are detected, the system automatically changes from the outside air circulation mode to the recirculation mode. When the auto-recirculation button is pushed under the following conditions, the indicator light on the “button will ” button will illuminate and the exhaust gas detection sensor will turn on.
► The air flow control is not in the front defroster mode (the indicator light on the “ turned off).” front defroster button is turned off).
► The outside temperature is about 32F (0C) or more. When the automatic intake air control is ON, for the first 5 minutes, the recirculation mode is selected to prevent dust, dirt and pollen from entering the vehicle and cleans the air inside of the vehicle with positive and negative ions that are emitted from the ventilator. After the 5 minutes, the sensor detects exhaust gas and automatically alternates between the recirculation mode and outside air circulation mode.
