I’m still mystified by the climate controls. Perhaps the European model is different.
1) I can’t have the fan blowing, just boosting external airflow, without the air conditioning icon (on Climate control display) showing the yellow bar above it. If I try to turn off the A/C (on Climate control display) the fan stops.
2) If I turn on the front demister, which I do from the steering wheel control, when I toggle it off again the ‘Auto A/C’ is then shown on the dash display resulting in a blast of cold / hot air. Which has to be turned off independently? I’m sure the Toyota designers didn’t have this in mind!
Thanks I need just to sit in the driveway and play with the controls ( I only just found out that the doors re-lock themselves if they are not opened within a certain time frame. I was using the transmitter from as far away as possible to unlock, then finding them locked again when I got to the car - the Prius has something new to offer just when I thought I knew it all)
I feel better now. I thought it was just me having problems activating air and heat without AC coming on somewhere---dash or screen. I went to the guide, read up, and still didn't get a clear answer. So trial and error seems to work. My first car with climate control and no "heat" indicator to make it easy.
