AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM ECO Switch Circuit

DESCRIPTION

The integration control and panel sub-assembly (ECO MODE switch) is installed on the instrument panel on the driver side. When the integration control and panel sub-assembly (ECO MODE switch) is turned on, the A/C amplifier receives an integration control and panel sub-assembly (ECO MODE switch) ON signal and controls the air conditioning to enhance fuel efficiency.

When the heater is on, the engine ON request coolant temperature will be set to a lower level. Thus, the length of time that the engine operates to generate the heat necessary to operate the heater will be limited. When the engine coolant temperature drops, the amount of air flow of the blower motor will also decrease. If FOOT/DEF or DEF is selected, or if the temperature is set to MAX HOT, the fuel efficiency control due to the integration control and panel sub-assembly (ECO MODE switch) operation will be canceled.

When the air conditioning is used to cool the vehicle, the power consumption of the compressor will be limited. Initially, the air conditioning will operate normally until the cabin temperature stabilizes. After the cabin temperature stabilizes, the power consumption of the compressor will be limited while stabilizing the cabin temperature. If the temperature is set to MAX COOL, the fuel efficiency control due to the integration control and panel sub-assembly (ECO MODE switch) operation will be canceled.
