How do you use the air conditioner?
Without a working air conditioner, the interior of your car can get very hot. Most models come with air conditioning as a standard feature, but you’ll need to verify that yours has it (some don’t). Here’s how to turn on and use the A/C:
Set the fan speed to your preferred rate
Set the mode to upper vents
Push the A/C button on the dash
Set the temperature knob to your preferred level
To cool your car faster, set it to max A/C, set the fan to high, set the temperature to the lowest setting, and turn on recirculate.
If you’re driving in Econ mode, you might experience temperature fluctuations with the air conditioner on.
When you use the max A/C, Econ mode is automatically turned off.
