The mode control system allows you to decide how the hot or cold air is dispersed in your car’s cabin. The mode control is a knob that is located with the climate control buttons on the center console. The mode has five settings. panel mode (torso and head-level air), floor mode (floor-level air), bi-panel mode (air sent through both the floor and torso-level vents), defrost mode (air is used to defrost the windows), and mix mode (air is used for floor-level air, and to defrost the windows and windshields).

To choose a mode, simply rotate the knob to the mode of your choice.
