Comfort Controls

This section tells you how to make your air system work for you.

With this system, you can control the heating, cooling and ventilation in your vehicle. Your vehicle also has a flow

through ventilation system described later in this section.

Climate Control Panel

Fan Button

The button with the fan symbol adjusts the fan speed.

Press the up arrow to increase fan speed and the down arrow to decrease fan speed.

Driver’s Side Temperature Knob

The knob adjusts the air temperature coming through the system. Turn the knob clockwise to increase the temperature and counterclockwise to decrease the temperature. Press the knob to turn the system off.

Passenger’s Side Temperature Button

With this feature, the right front passenger can control the temperature of air for his/her own zone. The passenger can select a warmer or cooler temperature from the driver’s setting.

To turn the system on, press the PASS/TEMP button.

Press the up arrow to increase the temperature and press the down arrow to decrease the climate setting.

Pressing the PASS/OFF button will turn off the dual

zone function.

Rear Passenger Climate Control

With this feature, the rear passenger (s) can control the temperature of the air for the rear compartment.

To adjust the direction of the air flow, press the MODE button, to adjust the blower speed, press the fan symbol button and to adjust the temperature, press the TEMP button. The driver can also override the system and select a PASS OFF button to turn off the rear climate controls.

See “Rear Climate Control” later in this section.

3-2

Outside Temperature Display

The outside temperature is always displayed when your vehicle is running. You can change it from Fahrenheit to

Celsius by pressing the ENG/MET (English/metric) button on the left side of the instrument panel cluster.

The outside temperature sensor is located near the front grille. The sensor can be affected by road or engine heat during idling, slow driving or when the engine is first started after a short trip. In order to ensure proper automatic climate control operation, the outside air temperature display may not update as quickly as expected. This is to allow the air surrounding the outside temperature sensor to be as close to the actual outside conditions as possible. This is determined by how much time has elapsed since the vehicle has been turned off and by vehicle speed.

Mode Button

Press the MODE button to deliver air through the floor, middle or windshield outlets. The system will stay in the selected mode until the MODE button is pressed again.

Press the up or down arrow to cycle through the available modes.

Automatic Operation

When the system is set for automatic operation, sensors will control the air delivery mode. Air will come from the floor, middle or windshield outlets. The fan speed will vary as the system maintains the selected temperature setting.

Be careful not to put anything over the solar sensor located in the middle of the instrument panel near the windshield. This sensor is used by the automatic system to regulate temperature.

To find your comfort zone, start with the 75

_F (24_C) setting and allow about 30 minutes for the system to regulate. Turn the knob to adjust the temperature if necessary. If you choose 60

_F (16_C), the system will remain at that maximum cooling setting and will not regulate fan speed. If you choose the temperature of

90

_F (32_C), the system will remain at that maximum heating setting and will not regulate fan speed. Choosing either maximum setting will not cause the system to heat or cool any faster.

3-3

With the automatic setting, the air conditioning compressor automatically cycles when needed to cool the air. In cold weather, when the system senses the need for heat, the airflow will be directed out the floor outlets. As the interior temperature approaches a desired setting, the blower speed will decrease. To maintain interior comfort, the airflow may move to the instrument panel air outlets and floor outlets (bi

level mode). On bright sunny days in cold weather, the airflow may come out of the air conditioning outlets (AC mode) to maintain comfort and prevent stuffiness.

If your vehicle is sitting out on a hot day and you have it set on AUTO, the air will first flow out the floor air outlets for a few seconds. That is normal. This is to expel hot air from the air outlets. As the air is cooled, the airflow will move through the air conditioning outlets. If you start your vehicle with the fan setting on

HI, it will skip the air conditioning purge.

To avoid blowing cold air in cold weather, the system will delay turning on the fan until warm air is available.

The length of delay depends on the outside air temperature, engine coolant temperature or the time since the engine was last started. As the coolant warms up, the blower fan speed will gradually increase and air will flow from the heater outlets, with some airflow to the windshield to prevent fogging under most normal conditions.

3-4

If you leave your vehicle, the system will remember the control setting the next time you start your engine, except for recirculation and defrost. Each ignition cycle cancels recirculation, whereas, FRONT DEFROST will change to auUse only household glass cleaner and a soft cloth. Wipe gently and dry throughly.tomatic operation when the ignition is shut off and then turned back on.

Manual Operation

You may manually adjust the air delivery mode or fan speed.

AC: This setting directs airflow through the four instrument panel outlets.

BI

-

LEVEL: This setting directs air into your vehicle in two ways. Cool air is directed to the upper portion of your body through the four instrument panel outlets while warmed air is directed to the floor.

HEATER/DEFROST: This setting directs air to the floor outlets and toward the windshield.

HEATER: This setting directs warmed air through the floor outlets. Some warm air is diverted to the windshield to minimize fogging.

DEFROST: Press this button to quickly remove fog or frost from the windshield. This setting sends most of the airflow to the windshield with only a small amount to the floor outlets.

FAN SPEEDS: Press the AUTO. At this setting, the fan speed is automatically controlled. If it is cold outside, the blower may not run in the maximum high fan speed right away. The system checks the temperature of the engine coolant to assure it is warm enough to provide heat. When the engine coolant is warm, the controller allows the fan to gradually increase to a higher speed. This prevents cold air from blowing into the passenger compartment.

OFF: Press the knob to turn the system off. Fresh air will continue to flow through the vehicle, and the system will try to maintain the previously set temperature. The outside temperature will show on the display when the system is OFF.

AC: Press this button to turn the air conditioning on and off. The system will cool and dehumidify the air inside the vehicle. In the AUTO mode the air conditioning compressor only operates when the system determines it is needed. The display will show A/C OFF when the air conditioning is off.

RECIRCULATION: Press this button to limit the amount of fresh air entering your vehicle. This is helpful when you are trying to cool the air quickly or limit odors entering your vehicle. In the AUTO mode, the system will use recirculation as necessary to cool the air.

Pressing the recirculation button will change the operation to a manual mode and the air will recirculate non

stop. Press this button again to turn off the recirculation feature.

If you notice the windows fogging, press the recirculation button to exit the recirculation mode.

3-5

Electronic Solar Sensor

The sensor monitors the sun’s solar radiation and is located on top of the instrument panel near the windshield. The ECC panel uses this information to automatically make the necessary temperature and airflow adjustments to maintain your comfort.

Air Conditioning

On hot days, open the windows long enough to let hot inside air escape. This reduces the time it takes for your vehicle to cool down. Then keep your windows closed for the air conditioner to work its best.

Press the AUTO button or the TEMP knob to turn the system on. The system will cool and dehumidify the air inside the vehicle. Also while in the AUTO mode, the system will use recirculation as necessary to cool the air.

You may also need to adjust the interior temperature and the fan speed as needed.

When the air conditioner is on, you may sometimes notice slight changes in your vehicle’s engine speed and power. This is normal because the system is designed to cycle the compressor on and off to keep the desired temperature.

Heating

Press the MODE button to select heater. Adjust the interior temperature to a comfortable level and if the fan speed needs adjusting, press the up or down arrow.

Outside air will be brought in and sent through the floor, air conditioning or bi

level outlets (depending on the condition). The heater works best if you keep your windows closed while using it.

3-6

Defogging and Defrosting

On cool, humid days, use defog HEATER/DEFROST to keep the windshield and side windows clear. Use defrost to remove fog or ice from the windshield quickly in extremely humid or cold conditions.

Press the MODE button to select DEFROST. Adjust the fan speed by pressing the fan button up or down. If you select DEFROST from AUTO, the system will control the fan speed. The temperature also needs to be adjusted by turning the TEMP knob.

RECIRCULATION is not available in the defrost or defog modes.

Rear Window Defogger

The lines you see on the rear window warm the glass. Press this button to turn on the rear defogger.

With it, the rear window and both outside rearview mirrors are heated.

The system will automatically shut off after 10 minutes of use. If you turn it on again, the defogger will operate for about five minutes. However, if your vehicle is traveling above 30 mph (48 kph) the system will not shut off. You can also turn the defogger off by turning off the ignition or by pressing the button again.

Do not attach a temporary vehicle license, tape or decals across the defogger grid on the rear window.

NOTICE:

Don’t use a razor blade or something else sharp on the inside of the rear window. If you do, you could cut or damage the warming grid or the integrated rear window antenna, and the repairs wouldn’t be covered by your warranty.

3-7

Rear Climate Control

Your vehicle is equipped with a rear climate control.

With this system, the rear passengers can control the temperature of the air flow for his/her own zones. The climate control has three buttons:

Mode: Press this button to adjust the direction of the airflow. Press again to use the AUTO adjust mode and let the system decide for you.

Fan: Press the button with the fan symbol on it to adjust the blower speed.

Temp: Press this button to adjust the temperature.

The system also has a front AUTO button that can automatically change the temperature of the rear seating area, based on information from the front system. A

PASS

-

OFF button located on the front climate control panel also allows the driver to turn off the rear passenger seat controls from the front seat.

3-8

Ventilation System

Your vehicle’s flow

through ventilation system supplies outside air into the vehicle when it is moving. Outside air will also enter the vehicle when the heater or the air conditioning fan is running.

The front outlets are located in the center and at each side of the instrument panel. You can adjust the direction of airflow by moving the center control levers or you can stop the airflow by moving the lever located on each side of the outlets downward.

Ventilation Tips

D Keep the hood and front air inlet free of ice, snow or any other obstruction (such as leaves). The heater and defroster will work far better, reducing the chance of fogging the inside of the windows.

D Keep the air path under the front seats clear of objects. This helps circulate air throughout your vehicle.

Passenger Compartment Air Filter

This ventilation system includes an air filter that helps to remove dust, pollen, etc. from the air flowing into your vehicle. A restriction in the airflow coming into the passenger compartment could be the result of dirt in the filter. For more information, see “Passenger

Compartment Air Filter Replacement” in the Index.

Also see the Maintenance Schedule booklet for when to change the filter.

3-9

HVAC Steering Wheel Controls

Some heating and cooling controls can be adjusted at the steering wheel. Other touch controls operate some audio controls. See “Audio

Steering Wheel Controls” in the Index.

FAN SPEED: Press the up arrow lever to increase the fan speed and the down arrow lever to decrease fan speed.

TEMP: Press the up arrow lever to increase the temperature and the down arrow lever to decrease temperature.

Climate Control Personalization

(If Equipped)

With this feature, your vehicle will recall the latest climate control settings as adjusted the last time your vehicle was operated. This feature allows two different drivers to store and recall their own climate control settings. The settings recalled by the climate control system are determined by which remote keyless entry transmitter (“1” or “2”) was used to enter the vehicle.

The number on the back of the remote keyless entry transmitter corresponds to driver 1 or to driver 2. After the unlock button is pressed on the remote keyless entry transmitter or the ignition key is placed in the ignition

(the ignition must be turned to OFF), the climate control settings will automatically adjust to where they were last set. The settings can also be changed by briefly pressing the memory seat buttons 1 or 2 located on the driver’s door.

Glovebox-Mounted CD Changer

With the compact disc changer, you can play up to 6 discs continuously. Normal size discs may be played using the trays supplied in the magazine. The smaller discs (8 cm) can be played only with specially designed trays.

You must first load the magazine with discs before you can play a compact disc. Each of the 6 trays holds one disc. Load the trays from bottom to top, placing a disc in the tray label side up. If you load a disc label side down, the disc will not play and an error will occur. Repeat this procedure for loading up to 6 discs in the magazine.

Once you have loaded the discs in the magazine, slide open the door of the compact disc (CD) changer. Push the magazine into the changer in the direction of the arrow marked on top of the magazine.

3-40

Close the door by sliding it all the way to the right.

When the door is closed, the changer will begin checking for discs in the magazine. This will continue for up to one and a half minutes, depending on the number of discs loaded.

To eject the magazine from the player, slide the CD changer door all the way open. Press the EJECT button and the magazine will eject. Remember to keep the door closed whenever possible to keep dirt and dust from getting inside the changer.

Whenever a CD magazine with discs is loaded in the changer, the CD changer symbol will appear on the radio display. If the CD changer is checking the magazine for CDs, the CD symbol will flash on the display until the changer is ready to play. When a

CD begins playing, a disc and track number will be displayed. The disc numbers are listed on the front of the magazine.

All of the CD functions are controlled by the radio buttons, except for ejecting the CD magazine.

Radio Personalization with Home and Away

Feature (If Equipped)

If DRIVER 1 (HOME or AWAY) PRESETS or

DRIVER 2 (HOME or AWAY) PRESETS appears in the display when the radio is first turned on, your vehicle is equipped with this feature.

With this feature, your vehicle will recall the latest radio settings as adjusted the last time your vehicle was operated. This feature allows two different drivers to store and recall their own radio settings. The settings recalled by the radio are determined by which RKE transmitter (“1” or “2”) was used to enter the vehicle.

The number on the back of the RKE transmitter corresponds to driver 1 or to driver 2. The radio settings will automatically adjust to where they were last set by the identified driver. The settings can also be recalled by briefly pressing the MEMORY seat buttons 1 or

2 located on the driver’s door.

Your radio can store home and away presets. Home and away presets allow you to use one set of preset radio settings in the area where you live, and another set when you go out of town. That way, you will not need to reprogram your presets every time you travel. With the radio off and the clock displayed, use FF and RW to select home or away presets. To select the away presets, press and hold FF for five counts until you hear a beep.

The next time the radio comes on, the away presets will be active. To select the home presets, press and hold RW for five counts until you hear a beep. The next time the radio comes on, the home presets will be active.

When battery power is removed and later applied, you will not have to reset your home radio presets because the radio remembers them. However, you will have to reset your away radio presets.

Theft-Deterrent Feature

THEFTLOCK

R

is designed to discourage theft of your radio. Your vehicle has a “built

in” theft

deterrent feature on each radio that is automatic

--

there is no programming required. The radio in your vehicle cannot be used in any other vehicle. When the radio was originally installed in your vehicle at the factory, it stored the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). Each time the ignition is turned on, the VIN is verified. If the vehicle’s VIN does not match the VIN stored in the radio, THEFTLOCK will be activated and the audio system will not play. If the radio is removed from your vehicle, the original VIN in the radio can be used to trace the radio back to your vehicle.

3-43

Audio Steering Wheel Controls

Some audio controls can be adjusted at the steering wheel. They include the following:

VOLUME: Press the up arrow lever to increase volume and the down arrow lever to decrease volume.

SELECT: When listening to the radio, press the up or down arrow lever to tune to the next or previous preset radio station. (If your vehicle is equipped with the

AM

-

FM Stereo with Cassette Tape Player, factory presets which have not been reprogrammed with your stations will be ignored). When listening to a cassette tape, the up or down arrow lever can be used to SEEK forward and rearward through the tape. Pressing the up or down arrow lever when listening to a CD will cause the player to go to the next or previous selection. When in Radio Data Systems (RDS) Program Type (PTY) mode, the up or down arrow lever can be used to perform a PTY preset seek. PSEEK will appear on the display while the PTY preset seek is performed. The radio will seek all of the PTYs stored in presets, except for the PTY Any.

3-44

Understanding Radio Reception

AM

The range for most AM stations is greater than for FM, especially at night. The longer range, however, can cause stations to interfere with each other. AM can pick up noise from things like storms and power lines. Try reducing the treble to reduce this noise if you ever get it.

FM Stereo

FM stereo will give you the best sound, but FM signals will reach only about 10 to 40 miles (16 to 65 km). Tall buildings or hills can interfere with FM signals, causing the sound to come and go.

Weather Band (If Equipped)

Weather band is restricted to speech and the audio quality is not as good as with the AM or FM bands.

Depending on location, the radio should receive one or two channels.

Tips About Your Audio System

Hearing damage from loud noise is almost undetectable until it is too late. Your hearing can adapt to higher volumes of sound. Sound that seems normal can be loud and harmful to your hearing. Take precautions by adjusting the volume control on your radio to a safe sound level before your hearing adapts to it.

To help avoid hearing loss or damage:

D Adjust the volume control to the lowest setting.

D Increase volume slowly until you hear comfortably and clearly.

3-45

NOTICE:

Before you add any sound equipment to your vehicle

--

like a tape player, CB radio, mobile telephone or two

way radio

--

be sure you can add what you want. If you can, it’s very important to do it properly. Added sound equipment may interfere with the operation of your vehicle’s engine, radio or other systems, and even damage them. Your vehicle’s systems may also interfere with the operation of sound equipment that has been added improperly.

So, before adding sound equipment, check with your dealer and be sure to check Federal rules covering mobile radio and telephone units.

Care of Your Cassette Tape Player

A tape player that is not cleaned regularly can cause reduced sound quality, ruined cassettes or a damaged mechanism. Cassette tapes should be stored in their cases away from contaminants, direct sunlight and extreme heat. If they aren’t, they may not operate properly or may cause failure of the tape player.

Your tape player should be cleaned regularly after every

50 hours of use. Your radio may display CLN or

CLEAN TAPE to indicate that you have used your tape player for 50 hours without resetting the tape clean timer. If this message appears on the display, your cassette tape player needs to be cleaned. It will still play tapes, but you should clean it as soon as possible to prevent damage to your tapes and player. If you notice a reduction in sound quality, try a known good cassette to see if it is the tape or the tape player at fault. If this other cassette has no improvement in sound quality, clean the tape player.

The recommended cleaning method for your cassette tape player is the use of a scrubbing action, non

abrasive cleaning cassette with pads which scrub the tape head as the hubs of the cleaner cassette turn.

The recommended cleaning cassette is available through your dealership (GM Part No. 12344789).

3-46

When using a scrubbing action, non

abrasive cleaning cassette, it is normal for the cassette to eject because your unit is equipped with a cut tape detection feature and a cleaning cassette may appear as a broken tape. To prevent the cleaning cassette from being ejected, use the following steps.

1. Turn the ignition to ON or ACCESSORY.

2. Turn the radio off.

3. Press and hold the SOURCE button for two seconds.

The tape symbol on the display will flash three times.

4. Turn the radio on and insert the scrubbing action cleaning cassette.

5. Eject the cleaning cassette after the manufacturer’s recommended cleaning time.

When the cleaning cassette has been ejected, the cut tape detection feature is active again.

You may also choose a non

scrubbing action, wet

type cleaner which uses a cassette with a fabric belt to clean the tape head. This type of cleaning cassette will not eject on its own. A non

scrubbing action cleaner may not clean as thoroughly as the scrubbing type cleaner.

The use of a non

scrubbing action, dry

type cleaning cassette is not recommended.

If your vehicle is equipped with the AM

-

FM Stereo with

Cassette Tape Player, press and hold the eject button for five seconds to reset the CLN indicator after you clean the player. The radio will display

---

to show the indicator was reset.

If your vehicle is equipped with any other radio, press and hold the eject button for three seconds to reset the

CLEAN TAPE indicator after you clean the player. The radio will display CLEAN TAPE MSG CLEARED to show the indicator was reset.

Cassettes are subject to wear and the sound quality may degrade over time. Always make sure the cassette tape is in good condition before you have your tape player serviced.

3-47

Care of Your Compact Discs

Handle discs carefully. Store them in their original cases or other protective cases and away from direct sunlight and dust. If the surface of a disc is soiled, dampen a clean, soft cloth in a mild, neutral detergent solution and clean it, wiping from the center to the edge.

Be sure never to touch the signal surface when handling discs. Pick up discs by grasping the outer edges or the edge of the hole and the outer edge.

Care of Your Compact Disc Player

The use of CD lens cleaner discs is not advised, due to the risk of contaminating the lens of the CD optics with lubricants internal to the CD mechanism.

Diversity Antenna System

Your AM

-

FM antennas are located in the front windshield and rear window. Be sure that the inside surfaces of the front windshield and rear window are not scratched and that the lines on the glass are not damaged. If the inside surfaces are damaged, they could interfere with radio reception.

NOTICE:

Do not try to clear frost or other material from the inside of the rear window with a razor blade or anything else that is sharp. This may damage the rear defogger grid and affect your radio’s ability to pick up stations clearly. The repairs wouldn’t be covered by your warranty.

If, when you turn on your rear window defogger, you hear static on your radio station, it could mean that a defogger grid line has been damaged. If this is true, the grid line must be repaired.

If you choose to add an aftermarket cellular telephone to your vehicle, and the antenna needs to be attached to the glass, be sure that you do not damage the grid lines for the AM

-

FM antennas or place the cellular telephone antenna over the grid lines.
