Sometimes you want a little cool air to come inside the cabin, but you don’t need the air conditioning system on. If you press the mode switch(labeled A/C) off, it will shut off the air conditioning and allow outside air in the cabin. The mode switch is located on the display with the other control knobs and buttons.
