Temperature conversion (°F - °C) The temperature displays can be converted to or from Fahrenheit and Centigrade, as follows:
Press and hold the air recirculation button.
At the same time, press and hold the on/off button for 3 seconds.
A ‘beep’ will sound to indicate that the conversion has taken place.
Rear air conditioning controls
Some vehicles are equipped with a supplementary air conditioning system, which supplies cooled, dried air to the rear passenger compartment through air vents set into the rear roof lining. The rear air conditioning will only operate when the front air conditioning is switched on. In all other respects, however, it is controlled independently using the controls set into the roof lining. To operate:
With the front air conditioning switched on, press the on/off switch in the rear air conditioning control panel (illustrated).
Adjust the slider control to increase or reduce the air conditioning fan speed.
Always switch off the rear air conditioning after use, otherwise operation will start automatically again when the vehicle is next used.
During cold weather, when the air conditioning is not in use, the rear air conditioning controls can be used to supply recirculated air to the rear passenger compartment.
For optimum operating efficiency, ensure all the air vents (including those in the rear of the vehicle) are open.
For the automatic temperature control system to function efficiently, all windows (and the sunroof) should be closed, and the air intake vents free from ice, snow, leaves or other debris.
In very humid conditions, slight screen misting may be experienced when the air conditioning system is turned on. This is a natural occurrence on most automotive air conditioning systems. It is not a fault and misting will clear after a few seconds once the air conditioning system is operating.
The air conditioning compressor will not function unless the engine is running.
Surplus water produced by the dehumidifying process is expelled from the system via drain tubes beneath the vehicle. This may result in a small pool of water forming on the road when the vehicle is stationary and is not a cause for concern.
If desired, the system's audible information chimes can be deactivated, as follows:
Press ‘Auto’ button and hold.
Press ‘On/off’ button and hold pressed for 3 seconds, then release.
Press ‘On/off’ button again for a further 3 seconds, and release.
Release ‘Auto’ button.
