Voice Control System  
Using Automatic Climate Control  
The automatic climate control  
system in your vehicle maintains the  
interior temperature you select. The  
system also adjusts the fan speed  
and airflow levels.  
Temperature Control  
On vehicles with navigation system  
The climate control system for your  
vehicle can also be operated using  
the voice control system. See the  
navigation system manual for  
complete details.  
The driver’s side temperature and  
the passenger’s side temperature can  
be set separately. Turn the dial of  
the appropriate temperature control  
clockwise to increase the  
temperature of airflow. Turn the dial  
counterclockwise to decrease it.  
Each set temperature is shown in the  
display.  
1. Press the AUTO button.  
2. Set the desired temperature by  
turning the driver’s side  
temperature control dial. You will  
see AUTO and the selected  
temperature in the display. You  
can also set the passenger’s side  
temperature by turning the  
passenger’s side dial.  
When you set the temperature to its  
lower limit (  
) or its upper limit  
(
), the system runs at full  
cooling or heating only. It does not  
regulate the interior temperature.  
When the indicator in the dual  
button is on, the driver’s side and  
passenger’s side temperature can be  
controlled independently (see page  
140 ).  
The system automatically selects the  
proper mix of conditioned and/or  
heated air that will, as quickly as  
possible, raise or lower the interior  
temperature to your preference.

Keep the system completely off  
for short periods only.  
Air Conditioning (A/C) Button  
This button turns the air  
conditioning on and off. You will see  
A/C ON or A/C OFF in the display.  
To keep stale air and mustiness  
from collecting, you should have  
the fan running at all times.  
When you turn the A/C off, the  
system cannot regulate the inside  
temperature if you set the  
temperature control dial below the  
outside temperature.  
Semi-automatic Operation  
You can manually select various  
functions of the climate control  
system when it is in fully automatic  
mode. All other features remain  
automatically controlled. Making any  
manual selection causes the word  
AUTO in the display to go out.
