• On vehicles with the heater, button (D) is not available for use. The indicator below the button doesn’t come on even if it is pushed.

• On vehicles with automatic air conditioning, there is an interior air temperature sensor (G) in the illustrated position.

Never place anything over the sensor, since doing so will prevent it from functioning properly.

Blower speed selection dial

Blower speed selection dial

Select the blower speed by turning the blower speed selection dial clockwise or anticlockwise.

Turn the dial clockwise to increase the air flow and anticlockwise to decrease the air flow.

Temperature control dial

Turn the temperature control dial clockwise or anticlockwise.

NOTE

• While the engine coolant temperature is low, the temperature of the air from 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.

• On vehicles with the automatic air conditioning, 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 customized (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 Authorized Service Point.

Refer to “Customizing the air conditioning switch (Automatic air conditioning)”.

Refer to “Customizing the air selection”.

Air selection switch

To change the air selection, simply press the air selection switch. There is a sound each time the switch is pressed.

• Outside air: Indication lamp (A) is OFF Outside air is introduced into the passenger compartment.

• Recirculated air: Indication lamp (A) is ON Air is recirculated inside the passenger compartment.

CAUTION

• Normally, use the outside position to keep the windscreen and side windows 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.

• On vehicles with the heater and the manual air conditioning, when the system NOTE

• On vehicles with the heater and the manual air conditioning, when the system operates with the selection switch in the outside position, the system automatically determines whether to continue using outside air or to perform recirculation. If the outside air temperature is high, the system selects recirculation and causes the indication lamp (A) in the switch to illuminate (for vehicles with the manual air conditioning, the system selects recirculation to achieve rapid cooling).

Press the selection switch to return to outside air introduction.

• On vehicles with the automatic air conditioning, 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.

• On vehicles with the automatic air conditioning, when the engine coolant temperature rises to a certain level, the air selection is automatically switched to the recirculation position and the indication lamp (A) comes on.

At this time, the system will not switch to the outside position even if the air selection switch is pushed.

Customizing the air selection

Functions can be changed as desired, as stated below.

• Enable automatic air control
• Heater/Manual air conditioning:

When the system operates, the air selection switch will be automatically controlled.

• Automatic air conditioning:

When 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
• Heater/Manual air conditioning:

Even when the system operates, the air selection switch will not be automatically controlled.

• Automatic air conditioning:

Even when 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.

When the setting is changed, a sound is emitted and the indication lamp flashes.

• When the setting is changed from enable to disable 3 sounds are emitted and the indication lamp flashes 3 times.
• When the setting is changed from disable to enable 2 sounds are emitted and the indication lamp flashes 3 times.

• The factory setting is “Enable automatic air control.” NOTE

• The factory setting is “Enable automatic air control.”

• When using the air conditioning, the idling speed may slightly increase CAUTION

• When using the air conditioning, the idling speed may slightly increase as the air conditioning compressor is switched on/off automatically. While the vehicle with a CVT is stationary, fully depress the brake pedal to prevent the vehicle from creeping.

• If a problem is detected in the air conditioning system, the air conditioning NOTE

• If a problem is detected in the air conditioning system, the air conditioning operation indication 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 indication lamp does not blink for a while, there is nothing wrong. If it starts to blink again, we recommend you to have it checked.

• Sometimes, for example after using a highpressure car wash, the condenser can get wet, and the operation indication lamp (A) blinks temporarily. In this case there is nothing wrong. Wait a while, press the air conditioning switch once to turn the system off, then once more to turn it back on. Once the water evaporates, the blinking will stop.

Customizing the air conditioning switch (Automatic air conditioning)

Functions can be changed as desired, as stated below.

• Enable automatic air conditioning control:

If the mode selection dial or blower speed selection dial is turned to the “AUTO” position, or the temperature control dial is set to the minimum temperature, the air conditioning switch is controlled automatically.

• Disable automatic air conditioning control:

The air conditioning switch is not controlled automatically as long as the air conditioning switch is not operated.

• Setting change method Hold down the air conditioning switch for about 10 seconds or more.
