The heater takes heat from the engine coolant and uses it to warm your vehicle’s cabin. Turning on the heater only takes a few steps: 1. Use the fan control dial to set the fan to your speed. 2. Press the lower air vent button. 3. Change the climate control temperature to the desired heat setting. 4. If the recirculation is turned on, press the recirculation button to turn it off (the indicator light will turn off).
