When the recirculated air is turned on, then the climate control system will recirculate air from inside the car’s cabin, rather than from outside the car. When the recirculated air is turned off, the car will pull air from outside of the vehicle. To turn on the recirculated air, press the Recirculated Air button. Press the button again to turn the system off. Tip Turning on the recirculated air will help you cool your car faster on a hot day.
