I have a very simple (hopefully) question. I no longer have my owners manual. I am wondering if anyone can advise if I can use all of the available settings for the climate control? Meaning if I would like to use heat can I use the setting that shows dash and floor but has the air conditioning symbol, or is this only for when the a/c is selected? I currently use only the selections that do not have the a/c symbol- so either floor, dash, defrost or defrost/floor. I haven't been able to word this right so searches haven't been sufficient. I really appreciate the responses and thank you for taking the time to do so!
Here are the functions starting from the very leftmost position:
"OFF"--self explanatory. No air from any vents
"MAX AC"--airconditioned air (compressor on) from dash vents only. Air is recirculated in cabln, with no outside fresh air introduced.
"AC"--same as "MAX AC", but fresh air from outside is introduced.
"Bi-Level"--Same as "AC", but air comes out on both dash vents and floor vents.
"Vent"--outside air is introduced. No compressor operation. Air comes out dash vents only.
"HEAT"--air comes out floor vents only. No compressor operation. Outside air introduced.
"HEAT/DEFROST"--air comes out both floor vents and on defroster vents. Compressor operates as needed to dehumidify. Outside air introduced.
"DEFROST"--air comes out defroster vents only. Compressor operates as needed to dehumidify. Outside air introduced.
