Automatic air conditioning
This system automatically regulates temperature, air flow and air distribution in the passenger compartment according to the temperature selected (for each side, right and left).
It provides an optimum level of comfort regardless of the climatic conditions, by permanent use of the automatic air conditioning mode (press the AUTO button) and with all the vents open.
Having no airflow prevents the air conditioning and the system in general from working.
1 - Automatic operation
This is the normal operating mode.
A press on this control, confirmed by the display of "A/C" and "AUTO", automatically manages all the 5 following functions according to the temperature chosen:
- Flow of air.
- Cabin temperature.
- Distribution of air.
- Air conditioning.
- Recycling of air.
To enable the system to operate, all the air vents should be kept open.
To prevent misting of the interior of the vehicle in cold and damp conditions, the use of AUTO mode is recommended.
2 - Adjustment of temperature on left hand side
3 - Adjustment of temperature on right hand side
To display the desired temperature, rotate control 2 or 3:
- To the left to lower the temperature
- To the right to raise the temperature
The difference between the temperatures on the right and on the left cannot be greater than 3.
An adjustment around 21 will provide a temperature that is comfortable. Depending on your requirements, an adjustment between 18 and 24 is normal.
The display HI (high) corresponds to a demand for maximum heating (above 27).
The display LO (low) corresponds to a demand for maximum air conditioning (below 15).
- When you enter the vehicle, the temperature inside the vehicle may be much
colder (or warmer) than a comfortable temperature. It is no use modifying the displayed
temperature to try to attain the desired level of comfort. The system automatically
strives to compensate this temperature discrepancy as rapidly as possible.
- When starting the engine from cold, in order to avoid distributing too much cold air, the blower will attain its optimum level gradually.
