Vent Controls

You can adjust the direction of the

air coming from the dashboard vents

by moving the tab in the center of
each vent up-and-down and side-to-

side.

The vents in the corners of the

dashboard can be opened and closed

with the dials underneath them.

How to Use the System

This section covers how to set up the

system controls for ventilation,

heating, cooling, dehumidifying, and
defrosting.

The engine must be running for the
heater and air conditioning to
generate hot and cold air. The heater

uses engine coolant to warm the air.
If the engine is cold, it will be several
minutes before you feel warm air
coming from the system.

The air conditioning does not rely on

engine temperature.

Heating and Cooling

It is best to leave the system in Fresh

Air mode under almost all conditions.

Keeping the system in Recirculation
mode, particularly with the A / C off,
can cause the windows to fog up.
Switch to Recirculation mode when
you are driving through smoky or

dusty conditions, then switch back to
Fresh Air mode when the condition
clears.

The outside air intakes for the
heating and cooling system are at
the base of the windshield. Keep

these clear of leaves and other

debris.

Ventilation

The flow-through ventilation system

draws in outside air, circulates it

through the interior, then exhausts it
through vents near the hatch.

1. Slide the temperature control lever

all the way to the left.
Make sure the A / C is off.

2. Select and Fresh Air mode.
3. Set the fan to the desired speed.

4. Open the windows partially. Select

and Fresh Air mode.

When the interior has cooled down

to a more comfortable temperature,
close the windows and set the
controls as described for normal
cooling.

Air conditioning places an extra load

on the engine. Watch the engine
coolant temperature gauge (see page

59

) when driving in stop-and-go

traffic or climbing a long, steep hill.
If it moves near the red zone, turn

off the A / C until the gauge reads
normally.

To Heat

To warm the interior:

1. Start the engine.

2. Select and Fresh Air mode.
3. Set the fan to the desired speed.
4. Adjust the warmth of the air with

the temperature control lever.

To Heat and Dehumidify with Air
Conditioning

moisture from the air. When used in
combination with the heater, it
makes the interior warm and dry.

1. Switch the fan on.

2. Turn on the air conditioning.
3. Select and Fresh Air mode.
4. Adjust the temperature control

lever so the mixture of heated and
cooled air feels comfortable.

Heating and Cooling

To remove exterior frost or ice from

the windshield and side windows
after the car has been sitting out in
cold weather:

1. Start the engine.

2. Select the Fresh Air mode and

3. Switch the fan and temperature

controls to maximum.

To rapidly remove exterior frost or

ice from the windshield (on very cold
days), first select the Recirculation

mode. Once the windshield is clear,
select the Fresh Air mode to avoid
fogging the windows.

These settings direct all the air flow
to the defroster vents at the base of

the windshield and the side window
defroster vents. The air flow will get
warmer and clear the windows faster
as the engine warms up. You can
close the side vents with the dial
underneath each vent. This will send
more warm air to the windshield

defroster vents.

For safety, make sure you have a
clear view through all the windows
before driving away.

To Turn Everything Off

To shut off the system temporarily,

slide the fan speed and temperature
control levers all the way to the left.

You should shut the system

completely off only for the first few
minutes of driving in cold weather,
until the engine coolant warms up
enough to operate the heater. Keep
the fan on at all other times so stale
air does not build up in the interior.

Radio Frequencies

Your Acura’s radio can receive the

complete AM and FM bands.

Those bands cover these frequen-

cies:

AM band:

530 to 1,710 kilohertz
FM band:
87.7 to 107.9 megahertz

Radio stations on the AM band are
assigned frequencies at least ten

kilohertz apart (530, 540, 550).

Stations on the FM band are
assigned frequencies at least 0.2
megahertz apart (87.9, 88.1, 88.3).

Stations must use these exact
frequencies. It is fairly common for
stations to round-off the frequency in
their advertising, so your radio could
display a frequency of 100.9 even
though the announcer may identify
the station as «FM101.»

Radio Reception

How well your Acura’s radio receives
stations is dependent on many
factors, such as the distance from
the station’s transmitter, nearby
large objects, and atmospheric
conditions.

A radio station’s signal gets weaker

as you get farther away from its
transmitter. If you are listening to an

AM station, you will notice the sound
volume becoming weaker, and the

station drifting in and out. If you are

listening to an FM station, you will
see the stereo indicator flickering off
and on as the signal weakens.
Eventually, the stereo indicator will
go off and the sound will fade
completely as you get out of range of
the station’s signal.

Driving very near the transmitter of
a station that is broadcasting on a
frequency close to the frequency of
the station you are listening to can
also affect your radio’s reception.

You may temporarily hear both

stations, or hear only the station you
are close to.

Audio System

Radio signals, especially on the FM
band, are deflected by large objects
such as buildings and hills. Your
radio then receives both the direct
signal from the station’s transmitter,
and the deflected signal. This causes
the sound to distort or flutter. This is
a main cause of poor radio reception
in city driving.

Radio reception can be affected by
atmospheric conditions such as
thunderstorms, high humidity, and
even sunspots. You may be able to
receive a distant radio station one
day and not receive it the next day

because of a change in conditions.

Electrical interference from passing

vehicles and stationary sources can

cause temporary reception problems.

As required by the FCC:

Changes or modifications not expressly

approved by the party responsible for
compliance could void the user’s
authority to operate the equipment.
