Climate controls for windows and mirrors

Activating and deactivating max defroster

Updated 7/7/2021

Activating and deactivating max defroster

Max defroster is used to quickly remove mist and ice from windows.

Max defroster deactivates auto-regulation of the climate and air recirculation, activates air conditioning and changes the fan level to 5 and the temperature to HI.

Note

Changing the fan level to 5 increases the noise level.

When max defroster is deactivated, the climate control system returns to the previous settings.

Activating and deactivating max defroster from centre console

There is a physical button in the centre console for quick access to max defroster.

For cars with heated windscreen*, the first press of the button activates the heating, and the next press activates max defroster. A third press deactivates both.
