Automatic Operation

AUTO (Automatic): When automatic operation is active, the system will control the inside temperature, the air delivery mode, and the fan speed.

Use the steps below to place the entire system in automatic mode:

1. Press the AUTO button.

When AUTO is selected, the air conditioning operation and air inlet mode will be automatically controlled. The air conditioning compressor will run when the outside temperature is over approximately 40°F (4°C).

The air inlet will normally be set to outside air. If it’s hot outside, the air inlet will automatically switch to recirculate inside air to help quickly cool down your vehicle.

2. Set the driver’s and passenger’s temperature.

To find your comfort setting, start with a 72°F (22°C) temperature setting and allow about 20 minutes for the system to regulate.

Turn the driver’s or passenger’s side temperature knob to adjust the temperature setting as necessary. If you choose the temperature setting of 60°F (15°C), the system will remain at the maximum cooling setting.

If you choose the temperature setting of 90°F (32°C), the system will remain at the maximum heat setting. Choosing either maximum setting may not cause the vehicle to heat or cool any faster.
