Using the air conditioning system

■ Adjusting the position and opening and closing the air outlets

Front

Direct air flow to the left or right, up or down.

Using the air conditioning system

  1. Open the vent
  2. Close the vent

Rear (CrewMax models)

  1. Direct air flow to the left or right, up or down.
  2. Turn the knob to open or close the vent.

Using the air conditioning system

■Fogging up of the windows

  • The windows will easily fog up when the humidity in the vehicle is high.

    Turning on will dehumidify the air from the outlets and defog the windshield effectively.

  • If you turn off, the windows may fog up more easily.
  • The windows may fog up if the recirculated air mode is used.

■Outside/recirculated air mode When driving on dusty roads such as tunnels or in heavy traffic, set the outside/ recirculated air mode button to the recirculated air mode. This is effective in preventing outside air from entering the vehicle interior. During cooling operation, setting the recirculated air mode will also cool the vehicle interior effectively.

■When the outside temperature exceeds 75ºF (24ºC) and 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 in the "ON" position.
  • It is possible to switch to outside air mode at any time by pressing .

■When the outside temperature falls to nearly 32ºF (0ºC) The dehumidification function may not operate even when 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.
WARNING

■To prevent the windshield from fogging up

  • Do not use 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.
  • Do not place anything on the instrument panel which may cover the air outlets.

    Otherwise, air flow may be obstructed, preventing the windshield defoggers to defog.

Using the air conditioning system

To prevent burns (vehicles with rear view mirror defoggers and windshield wiper de-icer)

  • Do not touch the rear view mirror surfaces when the outside rear view mirror defoggers are on.
  • Do not touch the glass at lower part of the windshield or to the side of the front pillars, when the windshield wiper de-icer is on.
