1. Open all the windows.

2. Set the button air recirculation
button to off and the fan control dial to high to circulate the air.

● If electrical wiring or other cable connections must pass to a trailer through the seal on the trunk lid or the body, follow the manufacturer’s recommendation to prevent carbon monoxide entry into the vehicle.
