Volkswagen Touran Owners Manual: Information on the air conditioning system

First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

The cooling system for the vehicle interior only works when the engine is running and the blower is switched on.

The air conditioning system operates most effectively with the windows and the panoramic sliding roof closed. However, if the vehicle has heated up after standing in the sun for some time, the air inside can be cooled more quickly by opening the windows and the panoramic sliding roof for a short time.

Settings for optimal road visibility

When the cooling system is switched on, not only the temperature, but also the air humidity in the vehicle interior is reduced. This improves comfort for the vehicle occupants and prevents misting of the windows when the outside air humidity is high:

Air conditioning system (manual)

  • Switch off air recirculation mode   .
  • Set the blowers to the desired level.
  • Set temperature selector to the middle position.
  • Open and position all vents on the dash panel   .
  • Turn the air distribution controller to the desired position.
  • Press the button AC to switch the cooling system on. The indicator lamp in the button lights up.

Climatronic

  • Press the button AUTO.
  • Set temperature to +22 °C (+72 °F).
  • Open and position all vents on the dash panel   .

Climatronic: selecting the temperature unit in the display of the factory-fitted radio or navigation system

It is possible to choose between Celsius and Fahrenheit for the temperature display in the factory-fitted radio or navigation system via the menu in the instrument cluster   .

The cooling system cannot be switched on

If the cooling system cannot be switched on, it may be for the following reasons:

  • The engine is not running.
  • The blower is switched off.
  • The air conditioner fuse has blown.
  • The ambient temperature is lower than approximately +3 °C (+38 °F).
  • The compressor has been temporarily switched off because the coolant temperature is too high.
  • There is a different fault in the vehicle. The air conditioning system should be checked by a qualified workshop.

Things to note

If the humidity and temperature outside the vehicle are high, condensation can drip off the evaporator in the cooling system and form a pool underneath the vehicle. This is normal and does not indicate a leak!

The windscreen may mist up after starting the engine due to residual humidity in the air conditioning system. Switch the defrost function on in order to clear the windscreen of condensation or mist as quickly as possible.
