then use the air conditioning in auto-

If the condensation does not clear,
use the FAST programme.
Do not open the refriger-

Your vehicle is equipped with an antip-

ters resistance whilst closing, (some-
body’s fingers, etc.) it stops and then
moves back several centimetres.
Never leave your vehicle
with the RENAULT card
inside and never leave a
child (or a pet) unsupervised, even
for a short while.
The reason for this is that the child
may endanger himself or others by
starting the engine, activating equip-
ment such as the window winders
for example, or locking the doors.
Also, in hot and/or sunny weather,
please remember that the tempera-
ture inside the passenger compart-
ment increases very quickly.
If a body part gets trapped, reverse
the direction of travel as soon as
possible by turning button 7 fully to
the right (position D).
