CLIMATE

Climate – general information

The vehicle is equipped with Electronic Climate

Control (ECC) (p. 125) that cools, heats or

dehumidifies the air in the passenger compartment.

Air conditioning

NOTE

The air conditioning can be switched off, but to ensure the best possible climate comfort in the passenger compartment and to prevent the windows from misting, it should always be on.

In warm weather, a small amount of water may accumulate under the car when it has been parked. This water is condensation from the A/C system and is normal.

Side windows and moonroof

To ensure that the air conditioning works optimally, the side windows, and the optional moonroof should be closed.

Fog on the inside of the windows

The defroster function (p. 128) should be used

to remove fog or mist from the inside of the windows. Keeping the windows clean with a commercially available window washing spray will also help prevent fogging or misting.

Vents in the parcel shelf

NOTE

The air vents at the rear of the parcel shelf should never be obstructed.

Temporary shut-off of the air conditioning

The air conditioning (p. 128) is momentarily dis-

engaged during full acceleration or when driving uphill with a trailer. This may result in a temporary increase in cabin temperature.

Ice and snow

Always keep the air intake grille at the base of the windshield free of snow.

Climate system maintenance

Special tools and equipment are required to maintain and carry out repairs on the climate system. Work of this type should only be done by a trained and qualified Volvo service technician.

Refrigerant

Volvo cares about the environment. The air conditioning system in your car contains a CFC-free refrigerant – R134a. This substance will not deplete the ozone layer. The air conditioning system contains 1.76 lbs (800 g) of R134a. The systems uses PAG oil.

Climate – sensors

The climate system utilizes a number of sensors to help regulate the temperature and humidity level in the passenger compartment.

Sensor location

The sunlight sensor is located on the top side of the dashboard.

NOTE

The sunlight sensor monitors which side of the car that is most exposed to sunlight. This can mean that the temperature may differ between the right and left-side air vents, even if the temperatures set for both sides of the passenger compartment are the same.

The temperature sensor for the passenger compartment is located below the climate control panel.

The outside (ambient) temperature sensor is located on the door mirror.

The humidity sensor

*

is located in the interior rearview mirror.

NOTE

Do not cover or block the sensors with clothing or other objects.

CLIMATE

Air quality

The passenger compartment has been designed to be pleasant and comfortable, even for people with asthma and contact allergies.

Passenger compartment filter

Replace the cabin air filter with a new one at the recommended intervals. Please refer to your Warranty and Service Records Information booklet, or consult a trained and qualified Volvo service technician for these intervals. The filter should be replaced more often when driving under dirty and dusty conditions. The filter cannot be cleaned and therefore should always be replaced with a new one.

NOTE

There are different types of cabin air filters.

Ensure that the correct type is installed.

Interior Air Quality System (IAQS)

A multifilter helps reduce gases and particles in the incoming air, thereby reducing the levels of odors and contaminants entering the vehicle. The air quality sensor detects increased levels of contaminants in the outside air. When the air quality sensor detects contaminated outside air, the air intake closes and the air inside the passenger compartment is recirculated, i.e., no outside air enters the vehicle. The filter also cleans recirculated passenger compartment air.

NOTE

Contact your Volvo retailer for IAQS air filter replacement intervals.

Materials used in the cabin

The materials used in the cabin have been developed to help minimize the amount of dust and make the cabin easier to keep clean. All floor mats can be easily removed for cleaning. Use car cleaning products recommended by Volvo. See

also the information in Cleaning the interior

(p. 361).

Interior Air Quality System (IAQS)

*

The Air Quality System (IAQS) consists of a multifilter and an air quality sensor. The filter helps remove gases and particles from the incoming air, thereby reducing the amounts of odors and contaminants entering the vehicle.

The air quality (p. 121) sensor detects increased

levels of contaminants in the outside air. When the air quality sensor detects contaminated outside air, the air intake closes and the air inside the passenger compartment is recirculated, i.e., no outside air enters the vehicle. The filter also cleans recirculated passenger compartment air.

When the

AUTO

(p. 127) button is depressed

the air quality sensor is always engaged.

Activate or deactivate this function in

Climate settings Interior air quality system

.

NOTE

The air quality sensor should always be engaged in order to obtain the best air in the passenger compartment.

Recirculation is limited in cold weather to avoid fogging.

If the insides of the windows start fogging, disengage the air quality sensor.

Use the defroster function to increase airflow to the front, side, and rear windows.

Temperature and blower control

When the vehicle is started, the most recent setting is resumed.

The blower should always be activated to help avoid condensation and fogging on the windows.

Air conditioning

The air conditioning function cools and dehumidifies the air in the passenger compartment.

When the indicator light in the button is on, the air conditioning is controlled automatically.

This cools/heats and dehumidifies the incoming air. When the indicator light in the button is off, the air conditioning is disengaged. Other functions are still controlled

automatically. When maximum defroster (p. 128)

is selected, the air conditioning system is set for maximum blower speed and dehumidifies the cabin as quickly as possible.

NOTE

Triangular areas at the far sides of the windshield are not heated electrically and will take slightly longer to defrost/de-ice.

The heated windshield may affect the performance/range of e.g., transponders used to automatically pay highway tolls or other communication equipment.

The following occurs when the defroster/windshield heating functions have been activated:

Blower speed increases automatically and

the air conditioning (p. 128) will switch on (if

not already on and if the passenger compartment blower is not turned off) to dehumidify the air in the passenger compartment. Air conditioning can be switched off by pressing the

AC

button.

Recirculation (p. 130) will not function while

defrost is engaged.

The climate system will return to its previous settings when the defroster/windshield heating function is switched off.

CLIMATE

Air distribution – recirculation

Recirculation can be used to shut out exhaust fumes, smoke, etc., from the passenger compartment.

The air in the passenger compartment is then recirculated, i.e., no air from outside the car is taken into the car when this function is activated. The indicator light in the button will illuminate when recirculation is selected.

If the air in the car recirculates for too long, there is a risk of condensation forming on the insides of the windows, especially in winter.

Timer

The timer function minimizes the risk of fogging, or stale air when the recirculation function is selected by automatically switching off the function after a certain length of time, depending on the ambient temperature. Activate/deactivate the function under

Climate settings

Recirculation timer

. See My Car – introduction

(p. 71) for a description of the menu system.

NOTE

When Defroster is selected, recirculation is always deactivated.
