Sometimes you don’t want the heat or the air on in the car. The ventilation system is designed to circulate fresh air from outside the car into the cabin. To use this system, follow these steps:

  1. Turn the temperature control dial to cold.

  2. Turn off the air conditioner if it’s on.

  3. Change the mode to fresh air.

  4. Adjust the fan speed to your preference.

  5. Adjust the vents to your preference.
