Skoda Fabia / Skoda Fabia Owners Manual / Using the system / Heating and air conditioning / Climatronic (automatic air conditioning system)

Climatronic in automatic mode ensures the best-possible setting of the temperature of the outflowing air, the blower stage and air distribution.

The system also takes sunlight into account, which eliminates the need to alter the settings manually.

The cooling system operates only if the following conditions are met.

  • The cooling system is switched on » page 91.
  • The engine is running.
  • The outside temperature is above approximately +2 °C.

If the coolant temperature is too high, the cooling system is switched off to ensure that the engine cools down.

Note

  • We recommend that you have Climatronic cleaned by a specialist garage once every year.
  • During operation of the Climatronic, under certain circumstances an increase in engine idle speed can occur in order to ensure adequate heating comfort.

Note

Do not stick anything on or cover the interior temperature sensor 11 » Fig. 97; it could have an unfavourable effect on the Climatronic system.

Automatic mode

The automatic mode is used in order to maintain a constant temperature and to demist the windows in the interior of the car.

Switching on

  • Set a temperature between +18 °C and +29 .

  • Move the air outlet vents 3 » Fig. 94 on page 86 and 4 so that the air flow is directed slightly upwards
  • Press the button » Fig. 97
    on page 91; will appear in the
    display.

Automatic mode can be switched off by pressing any of the air distribution buttons or by increasing/decreasing the blower speed. The temperature is nevertheless regulated.

Setting the temperature

Setting temperature

  • Switch on the ignition.
  • Turn the control dial 1 » Fig. 97 on page 91 to the left or to the right to increase or decrease the temperature.

Switching between Celsius and Fahrenheit

  • Press and hold the  
    and buttons simultaneously.

The information appears in the display in the desired temperature unit (no.

3 » Fig. 97 on page 91).

The interior temperature can be set between +18 °C and +29 . The interior
temperature is regulated automatically within this range.

If you set the temperature below +18 ,
“LO” appears in the display.

If you set a temperature higher than +29 , “HI” appears in the display.


In both end positions, the Climatronic operates at maximum cooling or heating capacity. No automatic temperature control takes place during this.

CAUTION

Lengthy and uneven distribution of the air flow out of the vents (especially around the feet) and large differences in temperature, for example, when getting out of the vehicle, can cause susceptible individuals to catch a cold.

Recirculated air mode

Recirculated air mode prevents polluted air from outside the vehicle getting into the vehicle, for example when driving through a tunnel or when standing in a traffic jam.

Switching on

  • Press the button » Fig. 97
    on page 91.

The display shows the icon.


Switching off

  • Press the button » Fig. 97
    on page 91 again.

The icon in the display goes
out.

WARNING

Never leave recirculated air mode on over a longer period, as “stale air” can cause fatigue in the driver and the passengers, reduce attention levels and also cause the windows to mist up. The risk of having an accident increases.

Switch off recirculated air mode as soon as the windows start to mist up.

Note

If recirculated air mode is switched on for around 15 minutes, the symbol  will begin to flash in the display as a sign that the recirculated air mode is switched on long-term. If the recirculated air mode is not switched off, the symbol flashes for around 5 minutes.

Controlling the blower

The Climatronic system controls the blower stages automatically in line with the interior temperature. However, the blower level can be manually adjusted to suit your particular needs.

  • Turn control dial 10 » Fig. 97 on page 91 to the left or to the right to increase or decrease the blower speed.

If the blower is switched off, the Climatronic system is switched off.

The blower speed set is indicated by displaying the corresponding number of segments in icon 9 » Fig. 97 on page 91 in the display.

WARNING

  • “Stale air” may result in fatigue in the driver and occupants, reduce attention levels and also cause the windows to mist up. The risk of having an accident increases.
  • Do not switch off the Climatronic system for longer than necessary.
  • Switch on the Climatronic system as soon as the windows mist up.

Defrosting windscreen

Switching on

Press the   button » Fig. 97
on page 91.

Switching off

  • Press the button » Fig. 97
    on page 91 again or press the button.

More air flows out of the air outlet vents 1 and 2 » Fig. 94 on page 86. The temperature control is controlled automatically.
