Your climate control can switch between recirculated air and fresh air. When the system uses recirculated air, that means that the air is being recirculated through the vehicle’s cabin. When the system uses fresh air, then the air is being pulled from outside of the car. To turn on the recirculated air, press the recirculation mode button. When recirculation is turned on, and indicator next to the button will illuminate. To turn on the fresh air, press the recirculation mode button a second time to turn off the recirculation.
