The Air Conditioning Mode settings allow you to choose whether or not the air conditioning automatically turns on when the vehicle is started. Changing the Air Conditioning Mode settings takes only a few steps: 1. Turn on the infotainment system. 2. Press the CONFIG button to select the Configuration Settings menu. 3. Rotate the MENU/SELECT knob to Vehicle Settings, then press the knob to select. 4. Rotate the MENU/SELECT knob to Climate and Air Quality, then press the knob to select. 5. Rotate the MENU/SELECT knob to Air Conditioning Mode, then press the knob to select. 6. Use the MENU/SELECT knob to choose between On, Off, and Last Setting. When the Air Conditioning Mode is set to On, the air conditioning will automatically turn on when your vehicle is turned off. When it is set to Off, the air conditioning will only come on when manually turned on. When it is set to Last Setting, then when the car is turned on it will resume whatever air condition setting was being used when the vehicle was last turned off.
