Information on air-conditioning
The air-conditioning compressor
– Can switch off briefly to ensure sufficient engine cooling if the engine is operating under extreme load.
– Switches off automatically at temperatures below approx. 38 °F (3 °C) and cannot be switched on, even manually.
– Operates most effectively with the windows closed.
If the vehicle has been in the sun for a long time, it is a good idea to ventilate the interior briefly with the windows open.
– Depending on the outside temperature and humidity, condensation can drip from the evaporator and form a pool under
the vehicle. This is normal and not a sign of leaks.
