through the system.  
If the interior is very warm, you can cool it down  
more rapidly by partially opening the windows,  
turning the system on AUTO, and setting the  
temperature to low. Change the fresh mode to  
recirculation mode until the temperature cools down.

limit, Lo or Hi is displayed.  
Pressing the  
button switches the climate control  
system between on and off. When turned on, the
