What have temps been like where you are? If the temp is below 37 °F the A/C won't operate; once the temp gets above that it will.
For safety reasons, if the air distribution lever is
moved precisely to "Windshield Defrost", the air
conditioning switches itself on automatically with no
action by the occupants in order to ensure that the

In this case the function LED does not light up to indi-
cate that the air conditioning has been activated
When the air distribution lever is moved away from the
Defrost position, this function is canceled. This
happens regardless of the programmed temperature
or blower stage. In addition, air recirculation mode is
deactivated if it is on.
The air recirculation flap and the temperature blend
flap are actuated via electric actuator motors.
The cooling output of the refrigerant compressor is
controlled by means of an appropriate CAN signal
from the SAM control unit.
The interior temperature is measured by an integral
interior temperature sensor located on the bottom of
the heater/air conditioning operating unit.

The air conditioning cannot be operated in
