■ Adjusting the temperature setting

To adjust the temperature setting, turn the temperature control switch clockwise (warm) or counterclockwise (cool).

If "A/C" switch is not pressed, the system will blow ambient temperature air or heated air.

Vehicles with DUAL mode air conditioning system

The air conditioning system switches between individual and synchronized modes each time "SYNC" switch is pressed.

Synchronized modes (indicator on): The left-hand side temperature control switch can be used to adjust the temperature for the driver's and front passenger's side. At this time, operate the right-hand side temperature control switch to enter individual mode.

Individual modes (indicator off): The temperature for the driver's and front passenger's side can be adjusted separately.

■ Setting the fan speed

Vehicles without DUAL mode air conditioning system

To adjust the fan speed, turn the fan speed control switch clockwise (increase) or counterclockwise (decrease).

Pressing the off switch to turns off the fan.

Vehicles with DUAL mode air conditioning system

Operate the fan speed increases switch to increase the fan speed and the fan speed decrease switch to decrease the fan speed.

Pressing the off switch to turns off the fan.

■ Change the airflow mode

Press the airflow mode control switch.

The airflow mode changes as follows each time the switch is pressed.

  3. Feet
  4. Feet and the windshield defogger operates

■ Switching between outside air and recirculated air modes

Press the outside/recirculated air mode switch.

■ Set cooling and dehumidification function

Press the "A/C" switch.

When the function is on, the indicator illuminates on the "A/C" switch.

■ Defogging the windshield

Defoggers are used to defog the windshield and front side windows.

Press the windshield defogger switch.

Set the outside/recirculated air mode switch to outside air mode if the recirculated air mode is used. (It may switch automatically.)

To defog the windshield and the side windows quickly, turn the air flow and temperature up.

To return to the previous mode, press the windshield defogger switch again when the windshield is defogged.

When the windshield defogger switch is on, the indicator illuminates on the windshield defogger switch.

■ Defogging the rear window and outside rear view mirrors

Defoggers are used to defog the rear window, and to remove raindrops, dew and frost from the outside rear view mirrors.

Press the rear window and outside rear view mirror defoggers switch.

The defoggers will automatically turn off after a while.

When the rear window and outside rear view mirror defoggers switch is on, the indicator illuminates on the rear window and outside rear view mirror defoggers switch.

■ Eco air conditioning mode

The air conditioning is controlled with low fuel consumption prioritized such as reducing fan speed, etc.

Press the eco air conditioning mode switch.

When the eco air conditioning mode is on, the indicator illuminates on the eco air conditioning mode switch.

■When the outside temperature exceeds 75ºF (24ºC) and the air conditioning system is on

  • In order to reduce the air conditioning power consumption, the air conditioning system may switch to recirculated air mode automatically.

    This may also reduce fuel consumption.

  • Recirculated air mode is selected as a default mode when the engine switch is turned to ON.
  • It is possible to switch to outside air mode at any time by pressing the outside air mode switch.

■Fogging up of the windows

  • The windows will easily fog up when the humidity in the vehicle is high. Turning "A/C" on will dehumidify the air from the outlets and defog the windshield effectively.
  • If you turn "A/C" off, the windows may fog up more easily.
  • The windows may fog up if the recirculated air mode is used.

■When driving on dusty roads

Close all windows. If dust thrown up by the vehicle is still drawn into the vehicle after closing the windows, it is recommended that the air intake mode be set to outside air mode and the fan speed to any setting except off.

■Outside/recirculated air mode

  • Setting to the recirculated air mode temporarily is recommended in preventing dirty air from entering the vehicle interior and helping to cool the vehicle when the outside air temperature is high.
  • Outside/recirculated air mode may automatically switch depending on the temperature setting or the inside temperature.

■When the outside temperature falls to nearly 32ºF (0ºC)

The dehumidification function may not operate even when "A/C" switch is pressed.

■Ventilation and air conditioning odors

  • To let fresh air in, set the air conditioning system to the outside air mode.
  • During use, various odors from inside and outside the vehicle may enter into and accumulate in the air conditioning system. This may then cause odor to be emitted from the vents.
  • To reduce potential odors from occurring:
    • It is recommended that the air conditioning system be set to outside air mode prior to turning the vehicle off.
    • The start timing of the blower may be delayed for a short period of time immediately after the air conditioning system is started in automatic mode.
  • When parking, the system automatically switches to outside air mode to encourage better air circulation throughout the vehicle, helping to reduce odors that occur when starting the vehicle.

■Air conditioning system refrigerant

  • A label regarding the refrigerant of the air conditioning system is attached to the engine compartment at the location shown in the following illustration.

Using the air conditioning system and defogger

  • The meaning of each symbol on the label are as follows:

Caution

Air conditioning system

Air conditioning system lubricant type

Requires registered technician to service air conditioning system

Flammable refrigerant

■Customization

Some functions can be customized.

WARNING

■To prevent the windshield from fogging up

Do not use the windshield defogger switch during cool air operation in extremely humid weather.

The difference between the temperature of the outside air and that of the windshield can cause the outer surface of the windshield to fog up, blocking your vision.

■When the outside rear view mirror defoggers are operating

Do not touch the outside rear view mirror surfaces, as they can become very hot and burn you.

NOTICE

■To prevent battery discharge

Do not leave the air conditioning system on longer than necessary when the engine is off.

■When repairing/replacing parts of the air conditioning system

Have repair/replacement performed by your Toyota dealer.

When a part of the air conditioning system, such as the evaporator, is to be replaced, it must be replaced with a new one.
