Cooling function
The cooling function cools and dries the air.


  1. The cooling function can switch off briefly to ensure sufficient engine cooling when the engine is operating under extreme load. It automatically switches off at temperatures below approx. 38 °F / 3 °C and cannot be switched on, even manually.
  2. The cooling function operates most effectively with the windows closed. If heat accumulates in the passenger compartment when the windows are open, briefly ventilate the interior.
  3. Temporarily setting the temperature to a lower or higher value does not cool or heat the vehicle interior to the desired temperature more quickly.
  4. Depending on the outside temperature and humidity, condensation may drip from under the vehicle. This is quite normal and is not a defect.
  5. If the battery voltage is too low, the fresh-air blower and cooling functions are initially restricted and then switched off.

Switching automatic mode on

The front climate zones can be switched to automatic mode independently of one another.

  • Press the button for the relevant airconditioned area on the front control panel.
    The light indicator on the button and the AUTO indicator on the air-conditioning display light up.
    Air temperature, quantity and distribution are automatically controlled.

If necessary, the automatic system can be controlled manually. The manual setting is retained until the relevant function button is pressed again or until button is pressed.

Setting front temperature

Fig. 16: Setting temperature and air quantity on the front climate control panel

The temperature can be adjusted individually between 60 °F / 16 °C and 85 °F / 29.5 °C for each air-conditioning zone.

Recommendation: 72 °F / 22 °C.

The selected temperature is indicated in the display above the button.

Increasing and reducing front temperature

  • Press button for the relevant air-conditioning zone upward or downward.

If LO or HI appears on the display, the system is operating at maximum cooling or heating power. Automatic mode is switched off.

If one air-conditioned area is set to LO or HI while the climate control is operating in the SYNC mode, the other air-conditioned area also switches to LO or HI.

Pressing button for the relevant airconditioned area sets the default temperature of 72 °F / 22 °C.

  1. Please see chapter "Applying driver's A/C settings to the entire vehicle – SYNC mode" on page 59.

Setting front air quantity

The selected air quantity is shown in a bar display above button . The more bars that are displayed, the more air flows into the vehicle interior.

Increasing and reducing front air quantity

  • Press button upward or downward.

Pressing the button switches back to automatic mode.

If the air quantity was reduced so much that OFF appears on the air-conditioning display, the outside air supply is interrupted and the air-conditioning is switched off.

Impaired vision with air quantity OFF
The windows can mist up if the air quantity setting is OFF.

  • Press button upward (increase air quantity).
