or windshield
5. Fan Speed Control: This is used to control the blower
speed and turn the blower fan on or off
Recirculated Air Position: The
indicator light on the button illuminates
when the recirculated air position
is selected, with the recirculated air
position selected, air from passenger
compartment will recirculate in the
passenger compartment.
Fresh Air Position: With the outside
(fresh) air position selected, air enters the
vehicle from outside and is heated or cooled
according to the function selected.
To Remove Internal Fog On Windshield
● Set air intake to fresh air mode by switching off
recirculation mode
● Set air flow to defrost
● Turn on the A/C
● Set temprature control to desired position
● Set fan speed as required
To Remove External Fog On Windshield
● Set air intake to fresh air mode by switching off
recirculation mode

● Set temprature control to warm
● Set fan speed to higher position
Blower without A/C should only be used with fresh air mode to avoid any fogging. Operate
A/C at blower first after initial cooling at high speed. Do not turn the louvers towards
window side to prevent formation of fog on windows.
Use Rear Defogger Switch To Clear
Rear Windshield Fog (If Equipped):

and thin ice from the rear window, while the engine is
running. To activate the rear window defroster, press
the rear window defroster button located in the center
fascia switch panel.
● If the interior of the car is very hot when you first get
in, open the windows for a few minutes to expel the
hot air
● When you are using the air conditioning system, keep
all windows closed to keep hot air out
● When moving slowly, as in heavy traffic, shift to
a lower gear. This increases engine speed, which
in turn increases the speed of the air conditioning
● On steep grades, turn the air conditioning off to avoid
the possibility of the engine overheating
● During winters or in periods when the air conditioning
is not used regularly, run the air conditioning once
every 15 days for a few minutes. This will help
circulate the lubricants and keep your system in peak
operation condition
● To prevent dust or unpleasant fumes from entering
the car through the ventilation system, temporarily
set the air intake control at the recirculation mode. Be
sure to return the control to the fresh air mode
