BMW 3 Series G20 (2018-2024) Owners Manual / Climate control / Automatic climate control - switching on/off

Switching on

Press any button except for the following:

  • Switching off.
  • Rear window defroster.
  • Lower air flow button side.
  • Seat heating.

Switching off

Complete system:

Press the button until the control panel switches off.

Temperature

Concept

The automatic climate control achieves the set temperature as quickly as possible, if needed, by using the maximum cooling or heating capacity, and then keeps it constant.

Adjusting

Press the upper or lower button side to set the desired temperature.

Via iDrive:

1. "CAR".

2. "Settings".

3. "Climate control".

4. "Heating/ventilation".

5. "Driver".

6. "Temperature:"

7. Set the desired temperature.

Do not rapidly switch between different temperature settings. Otherwise, the automatic climate control will not have sufficient time to adjust the set temperature.

Air conditioning

Concept

The air in the car's interior will be cooled and dehumidified and, depending on the temperature setting, warmed again.

The car's interior can only be cooled with the drive-ready state switched on.

Switching on/off

Press the button.

Air conditioning is switched on with the engine running.

Depending on the weather, the windshield and side windows may fog up briefly when driveready state is switched on.

The cooling function is switched on automatically with the AUTO program.

When using the automatic climate control, condensation water develops and collects underneath the vehicle.

Maximum cooling

Concept

The system is set to the lowest temperature, optimum air flow and recirculated-air mode with the drive-ready state switched on.

General information

The function is available with external temperatures above approx. 32 ℉/0 ℃ and with the drive-ready state switched on.

Switching on/off

Press the button.

The LED is illuminated with the system switched on.

Air flows out of the vents to the upper body region.

The vents need to be open for this.

The air flow can be adjusted with the program active.

AUTO program

Concept

The AUTO program cools, ventilates or heats the car's interior automatically.

The air flow, air distribution and temperature will be controlled automatically depending on the interior temperature and the setting for the desired temperature.

Switching on/off

Press the button.

The LED is illuminated with the AUTO program switched on.

Via iDrive:

1. "CAR".

2. "Settings".

3. "Climate control".

4. "Heating/ventilation".

5. "Automatic".

Depending on the selected temperature and outside influences, the air is directed to the windshield, side windows, upper body, and into the floor area.

The cooling function is switched on automatically with the AUTO program.

Point the side vents toward the side windows.

The AUTO program is switched off automatically, when manual air distribution is set.

Recirculated-air mode

Concept

You may react to unpleasant odors or pollutants in the immediate environment by temporarily suspending the supply of outside air. The system then recirculates the air flow within the vehicle.

Operation

Press the button.

The LED is illuminated when recirculated- air mode is switched on. The supply of outside air is shut off.

When recirculated-air mode is switched off, fresh air is directed into the vehicle's interior.

Via iDrive:

1. "CAR".

2. "Settings".

3. "Climate control".

4. "Air quality".

5. Select the desired setting:

  • "Fresh air"
  • "Air recirculation"
  • "Auto-recirculate"

To prevent window fogging, recirculated-air mode switches off automatically after a certain amount of time, depending on the environmental conditions.

With constant recirculated-air mode, the air quality in the car's interior deteriorates and window fogging increases.

If there is window condensation, switch off recirculated- air mode or defog the windows.
