Question 3-zone climate control....

it was quite cold up here last night around -1 Celsius, so when l was leaving work around 2:15 in the morning, and turned on my climate control, l always use the auto button, but it only shows the auto light and temperature, but not the fan speed on the unit, and l had a devil of a time with my windows fogging up on the inside. Am l missing something ???? Do l manually have to raise the fan speed ?????

Shouldn't have to, the fans should flucuate accordingly by setting the desired tempeture. Another tip if you hit the auto button again, it will show you what the current air flow (red lights around the command unit) and I believe this is so you can 'adjust' some of the auto settings. I can't remember if it shows the fan speed with that

Just a follow-up..........

l'm just trying to get use to this 3-zone climate control unit, as l had the 2-zone before, it was a fairly easy modification...l found the front and rear unit on E-bay for a song, and both were plug and play....My son enjoys choosing his own temperature in the rear...

I really like the 3 zone climate control, my wife likes hot (front passenger) , my daughter (at the back) likes moderate and I like cold - driving...
