• Electric power consumption is high.
• The brake pedal is depressed repeatedly.
• Vehicle speed is 3 km/h (2 mph) or higher when coasting on a slope.
• Mode selection dial is set to the demister position.
• When the air conditioning is operated by pressing the air conditioning switch.
• When the preset temperature of the air conditioning is changed significantly.
• When the air conditioning is operated in AUTO mode where the temperature control dial is set to the max. hot or the max. cool position (for vehicles with automatic air conditioning).
