Rear Ventilation System

* Some models.

The rear ventilation system only blows cool air through the rear vents while the front climate control system is on. It does not blow air when the front climate control is off. The rear vents blow either outside air or recirculated air, depending on the position in which the air intake selector switch is set.

Front climate control is given priority over the rear ventilation control.

Then, switch on the rear ventilation control switch on the front climate control panel, or switch on either the low or high rear vent button on the rear console.

The rear vent switches adjust the airflow volume flowing from the rear vent.

OFF - Fan off.

LO - Low speed.

HI - High speed.

NOTE.

Only cool or cold air (no heat) blows through the rear vents while the front climate control is on. Heat for the rear passengers comes from under the front seats when the front heater is on and set to floor mode.

When pressing the rear ventilation control switch on the front control panel (with climate control system on), the rear ventilation system operates at low speed only. To change to high speed, press the HI rear vent button.
