Main Menust Heating and Cooling

The vents, heater and air conditioner are combined in one system; adjusting four basic controls to different settings can provide a full range of interior temperatures for safe and comfortable driving. Airconditioner: optional

Ventilation The flow-through ventilation system can provide fresh air to the interior when the car is moving or stopped, even with the windows closed.

NOTE: For proper air flow, the flow-through vents must not be covered. Keep the air inlet at the base of the windshield free of leaves or other debris.



You can adjust the controls to direct cool or warm outside air throughout the car for defogging windows, heating, or cooling. When stopped or driving at low speeds, you can increase the air flow by turning on the fan.


Main Menust Heating and Cooling (cont'd)

Dash Vents The corner vents can be used for flow-through ventilation, or for heating and air conditioning. When the car is moving, the driver's corner vent can also route fresh air directly from the outside by sliding the corner vent lever below it to the right and shutting it off from the heater and air conditioner system. The louvers in the corner and center vents can be tilted up or down and right or left, to change the direction of air flow.









Main Menust What the Controls Do:

Fan Switch Switch the fan to low (1), medium (2), medium high (3) or high (4) speed, to circulate warm, cool, or outside air, depending on where the temperature control dial and function lever are set. Whenever the fan is switched on, air flows from the dash corner vents regardless of function selection.

Function Lever Slide the lever right or left to direct outside air or recirculated (inside) air to and from the heater, air conditioner and vents.

Temperature Control Dial Turn the dial clockwise to make air warmer when the appropriate function is selected.

Air Conditioner Switch With the fan on, push the A/C switch to operate the air conditioner; the indicator light will come on. Push the switch again to turn the air conditioner off.

To change air distribution, slide the function lever to the position, and outside air will also flow from the floor level outlet at the heater.

To Cool (with optional air conditioner) To cool the car down quickly, slide the recirculation lever to the position, start the engine, turn the temperature control dial counterclockwise all the way, switch the fan to high ( 4 ), push the A/C button in, and open the window briefly. Then close the windows and corner vents, slide the function lever to the po- sition so inside air will recirculate to the air conditioner for maximum cooling.
