Auto defogging system (Only for automatic climate control system, if equipped)

Auto defogging reduces the probability of fogging up the inside of the windshield


Auto defogging reduces the probability of fogging up the inside of the windshield by automatically sensing the moisture inside the windshield.

The auto defogging system operates when the heater or air conditioning is on.

This indicator illuminates when the auto defogging system senses the moisture


This indicator illuminates when the auto defogging system senses the moisture inside the windshield and operates.

If more moisture is in the vehicle, higher steps operate as follows. For example, if auto defogging does not defog inside the windshield at step 1 Outside air position, it tries to defog again at step 2 Blowing air toward the windshield.

Step 1 : Outside air position

Step 2 : Blowing air toward the windshield

Step 3 : Increasing air flow toward the windshield

Step 4 : Operating the air conditioning

Step 5 : Maximizing the air conditioning

If your vehicle is equipped with the auto defogging system, it is automatically activated when the conditions are met. However, if you would like to cancel the auto defogging system, press the front defroster button 4 times within 2 seconds while pressing the AUTO button. The indicator will blink 3 times to notify you that the system is cancelled. To use the auto defogging system again, follow the procedures mentioned above.

If the battery has been disconnected or discharged, it resets to the auto defogging status.
