system will recirculate the air in the passenger compartment until the recirculation button is pressed again.
Timer mode memory: If the vehicle is turned off while timer mode is active, timer mode will still be active when
the vehicle is restarted.
Interior air quality sensor (option)
Some vehicles are equipped with a multi-filter and air quality sensor. The filter separates gases and particles,
thereby reducing the amounts of odors and contaminants entering the vehicle. The air quality sensor detects
increased levels of contaminants in the outside air. When the air quality sensor detects contaminated outside air, the
air intake closes and the air inside the passenger compartment is recirculated, i.e. no outside air enters the vehicle.
The filter also cleans recirculated passenger compartment air.
When the ECC system is in the AUTO mode, the green LED will be on
to operate the air quality sensor (normal setting).
Select one of the following three functions by pressing
1, 2 or 3 times. 1. The AUT LED lights. The air
quality sensor is now activated.
2. No LED lights. Recirculation is not activated unless needed to cool the passenger compartment in a warm climate.
3. The MAN LED lights. Recirculation is now activated.
Keep in mind the following:
Make it a rule to have the air quality sensor activated at all times.
Recirculation is limited in cold climates to avoid fogging.
If window fogging occurs, you should deactivate the air quality sensor.
If fogging occurs, use the defroster functions for the windshield, side windows and rear window. See
The filter should be changed at the intervals recommended in the service schedule. However, if the vehicle is
used in a severely contaminated environment, it may be necessary to change the filter more frequently.
