When the “ENGINE START STOP” switch is turned on, the air conditioning system settings will be set to those that were in use the last time the “ENGINE START STOP” switch was turned off.

Air conditioning system settings are memorized individually on each electronic key, so the settings reproduced will be specific to the key that is used.

 - Using automatic mode

Fan speed is adjusted automatically according to the temperature setting and ambi- ent conditions. As a result, the following may occur.

• Immediately after the switch is pressed, the fan may stop for a while until warm or cool air is ready to flow.

• Cool air may flow to the area around the upper body when the heater is on.

 - Switching between outside air and recirculated air modes

Recirculated air mode or outside air mode may be automatically switched to in accordance with the temperature setting, the inside temperature, outside tempera- ture, etc.

 - Using the system in recirculated air mode

The windows will fog up more easily if the recirculated air mode is used.

 - When the outside temperature exceeds 75 °F (24 °C) and the air conditioning system is on

• In order to reduce the air conditioning power consumption, the air conditioning system may switch to recirculated air mode automatically.

This may also reduce fuel consumption.

• Recirculated air mode is selected as a default mode when the “ENGINE START STOP” switch is turned to IGNITION ON mode.

• It is possible to switch to outside air mode at any time by pressing  - Window defogger feature .

CAUTION

 - To prevent the windshield from fogging up

Do not use in extremely humid weather. The dif- ference between the temperature of the outside during cool air operation in extremely humid weather. The dif- ference between the temperature of the outside air and that of the windshield can cause the outer surface of the windshield to fog up, blocking your vision.

NOTICE

 - To prevent battery discharge

Do not leave the air conditioning system on longer than necessary when the engine is stopped.
