How do I quickly heat the cabin of the vehicle?

If it is cold inside your car’s cabin, you can use the climate controls to quickly heat up the car. To heat the cabin quickly, follow these quick steps: 1. Use the fan control dial to set the fan speed to maximum. 2. Press the lower air vent button. 3. Turn the temperature dial to maximum heat. 4. Press the recirculation button (the indicator light should turn on). Once the cabin has been heated, change the settings to whatever you would like the cabin to remain at.
