NOTE:

● While the engine coolant temperature is low, the temperature of the air from the heater will be cool/cold until the engine warms up even if you have selected warm air with the dial.

● When the temperature is set to the highest or the lowest setting under the AUTO operation, the air selection and the air conditioning will be automatically changed as follows.

• Quick Heating (When the temperature is set to the highest setting) Outside air will be introduced and the air conditioning will stop.

• Quick Cooling (When the temperature is set to the lowest setting) Inside air will be recirculated and the air conditioning will operate.

The settings described above are the factory settings. The air selection and air conditioning switches can be customised (function setting changed), and the automatic switching of outside air and the air conditioning according to operating conditions can be changed as desired.

For further information, we recommend you to consult a MITSUBISHI MOTORS Authorised Service Point.

CAUTION:

● Normally, use the outside position to keep the windscreen and side windows clear and quickly remove fog or frost from the windscreen.

If high cooling performance is desired, or if the outside air is dusty or otherwise contaminated use the recirculation position. Switch to the outside position periodically to increase ventilation so that the windows do not become fogged up.

● Use of the recirculation position for extended time may cause the windows to fog up.

NOTE:

● When the mode selection dial or the blower speed selection dial is set to the “AUTO” position again after manual operation, the air selection dial will also be automatically controlled.

Customising the air selection (Changing function settings)

Functions can be changed as desired, as stated below.

● Enable automatic air control:

If the mode selection dial or blower speed selection dial is turned to the “AUTO” position, the air selection switch is also controlled automatically.

● Disable automatic air control:

Even if the mode selection dial or blower speed selection dial is turned to the “AUTO” position, the air selection switch is not controlled automatically.

● Setting change method Hold down the air selection switch for about 10 seconds or more.

NOTE:

● If a problem is detected in the air conditioning system, the air conditioning operation indicator lamp (A) blinks. Press the air conditioning switch once to turn it off, then once more to turn it back on. If the air conditioning operation indicator lamp does not blink for a while, there is nothing wrong. If it starts to blink again, we recommend you to have it checked.
