Vehicle side windows tend to fog on the inside in mild

outlets toward the side windows. Do not use recirculate
without A/C for long periods as fogging may occur.
Interior fogging on the windshield can be quickly re-

If the fogging problem persists, clean the inside window
surfaces. The cause of undue fogging may be dirt collect-

of moisture build up inside the vehicle. For maximum
defogging, use the Outside Air position.
Air conditioned vehicles must be protected with a high-
quality antifreeze coolant to provide proper corrosion
protection and to raise the boiling point of the coolant for
protection against overheating. A 50% concentration is
Outside Air Intake
When operating the system during the winter months,
make sure the air intake, directly in front of the wind-
shield, is free of ice, slush, snow or other obstructions
such as leaves. Leaves collected in the air-intake plenum

The blower air will heat faster in cold weather if you use
only a low blower speed for the first few minutes of
