AUTOMATIC CLIMATE CONTROL (2/5)
Varying the ventilation speed
In automatic mode, the system uses
the most suitable amount of air to reach
and maintain the desired comfort level.
You can still adjust the fan speed by
pressing the buttons 13 to increase or
reduce the fan speed.
In this case, the fan speed, which is
no longer controlled automatically, ap-
pears in zone A on the display 12.
Some buttons have an operating

Press button 1 or 6 to raise or lower the
left-hand 1 or right-hand 6 temperature.
Pressing button 3 for more than two
seconds sets the passenger tempera-
ture to the driver’s temperature.
Special note: The highest and lowest
settings allow the system to produce
maximum hot or cold temperature
levels (“LO” and “HI” indicated on the
multimedia display 12).
Clear View function
Press button 10: the integrated indica-
tor light comes on.
This function quickly demists and de-
ices the windscreen, the rear screen,
the front side windows, and the door
mirrors (depending on the vehicle). The
air conditioning and rear screen de-ic-
ing functions must be activated.
Press button 9 to stop the heated rear
screen operating; the integrated indica-

The displayed temperature values
show a comfort level.
When starting the engine, increas-
ing or decreasing the value dis-
played will not allow the com-
fort level to be reached any more
quickly. The system will always op-
timise the temperature increase or
decrease (the ventilation system
does not start instantly at maximum
speed: it gradually increases). This
may take several minutes.
Generally speaking, unless there is
a particular reason not to, the dash-
board air vents should remain open.
You are recommended to use automatic mode by selecting one of the auto-
matic programmes AUTO, SOFT or FAST.
In automatic mode (indicator light for button 3 on), all heating and air conditioning
functions are controlled by the system.
You can also change the system selection. In this case, the indicator lig\
ht on the
button 3 will go out and the changed function, which is no longer controlled by \
system, will be shown on the display 12.
To return to automatic mode, press one of the AUTO, SOFT or FAST programmes.

Pressing button 11 allows air recircula-
tion to be forced, in which case the in-
tegrated warning light comes on as well
as warning light 14.
Prolonged use of this position may lead
to odours, caused by non-renewal of
air, and the formation of condensation
on the windows.
We therefore advise you to return to au-
tomatic mode as soon as the air recir-
culation function is no longer required,
by pressing button 11 again.Stopping the system
Press the button 7 to switch off the
system; in this case “OFF” is shown on
the display 12. To switch the system on,

This function is managed automati-
cally (operation is confirmed by warn-
ing light 14 on display 12), but you can
also activate it manually.

is recycled, with no air being taken
from outside the vehicle;

AIR CONDITIONING: information and advice on use
You will normally notice an increase
in fuel consumption (especially
when driving in town) when the air
conditioning is operating.
For vehicles fitted with manual air
conditioning, switch off the system
when it is not required.
Advice for reducing
consumption and therefore
helping to preserve the
Drive with the air vents open and
the windows closed.
If the vehicle has been parked in
the sun, open the doors for a few
moments to let the hot air escape
before starting the engine.
Refer to the Maintenance
Document for your vehicle for the in-
spection frequency.Operating faults
As a general rule, contact your ap-
proved Dealer in the event of an op-
– reduction in de-icing, demist-
ing or air conditioning per-
formance. This may be caused
by the passenger compartment
filter cartridge becoming clogged;
– no cold air is being produced.
Check that the controls are set
correctly and that the fuses are
sound. Otherwise, switch off the
Advice on use
In some situations, (air conditioning
off, air recirculation activated, venti-
lation speed at zero or low, etc.) you
may notice that condensation starts
to form on the windows and wind-
If there is condensation, use the
“Clear View” function to remove it,
then use the air conditioning in auto-
matic mode to stop it forming again.
If the condensation does not clear,
use the FAST programme.
Do not open the refriger-
ant fluid circuit. The fluid
may damage eyes or skin.
Presence of water under the ve-
hicle. After prolonged use of the air
conditioning system, it is normal for
water to be present under the vehi-
cle. This is caused by condensation.
