BMW X5: AUTO program - Automatic climate control

BMW X5 (G05) 2019-2022 Owners Manual / Controls / Climate control / AUTO program - Automatic climate control

AUTO program

Principle

The AUTO program cools, ventilates or heats the car's interior automatically.

The air distribution and the temperature are controlled automatically depending on the interior temperature and the desired temperature setting including the selected intensity of the air flow.

Switching the AUTO program on/off

Using the button:

Press the button.

The LED of the button is illuminated with the AUTO program switched on.

Via iDrive:

1. "CAR".

2. "Settings".

3. "Climate control".

4. "Heating/ventilation".

5. "Driver" or "Front passenger".

6. "Automatic".

Depending on the selected settings and outside influences, the air is directed to the windshield, side windows, upper body, and into the floor area.

Point the side air vents toward the side windows.

The cooling function is switched on with the AUTO program.

At the same time, a condensation sensor controls the program so as to prevent window condensation as much as possible.

The AUTO program is switched off automatically, when manual air distribution is set.

Controlling the intensity of the air flow

With the AUTO program switched on, the intensity can be adjusted. This changes the automatic control for the air mass.

Using the button:

Press the lower or upper side of the button: decrease or increase intensity.

Via iDrive:

1. "CAR".

2. "Settings".

3. "Climate control".

4. "Heating/ventilation".

5. "Driver" or "Front passenger".

6. "Level".

7. Set the desired intensity.

The selected intensity is shown on the climate control display.

Automatic recirculated-air control

Principle

The automatic recirculated-air control recognizes pollutants in the outside air. The outside air supply is shut off and the interior air is recirculated.

General information

If the system is activated, a sensor detects pollutants in the outside air and controls the shut-off automatically.

If the system is deactivated, outside air continuously flows into the car's interior.

With constant air recirculation mode, the air quality in the car's interior deteriorates and window fogging increases.

If there is window condensation, switch off recirculated-air mode or defog the windows.

Switching automatic recirculated-air control on/off

1. "CAR".

2. "Settings".

3. "Climate control".

4. "Air quality".

5. "Automatic".

Air recirculation mode

Principle

You may react to unpleasant odors or pollutants in the immediate environment by temporarily suspending the supply of outside air. The system then recirculates the interior air.

When recirculated-air mode is switched off, fresh air is directed into the vehicle's interior.

Switch air recirculation on/off

Using the button:

Press the button.

The LED of the button is illuminated when the air-recirculation mode is switched on.

Via iDrive:

1. "CAR".

2. "Settings".

3. "Climate control".

4. "Air quality".

5. Select the desired setting:

To prevent window fogging, recirculated-air mode switches off automatically after a certain amount of time, depending on the environmental conditions.

With constant air recirculation mode, the air quality in the car's interior deteriorates and window fogging increases.

If there is window condensation, switch off recirculated-air mode or defog the windows.

Air flow, manual

Principle

The air flow for climate control can be adjusted manually.

General information

To adjust the air flow manually switch off AUTO program first.

Adjusting the air flow manually

Press the lower or upper side of the button: decrease or increase air flow.

The selected air flow is shown on the climate control display.

The air flow may be reduced automatically to save battery power.

Manual air distribution

Principle

The air distribution for climate control can be adjusted manually.

Adjusting the air distribution manually

Press the button repeatedly. Select the desired setting:

The selected air distribution is shown on the climate control display.

SYNC program

Principle

The Sync program can be used to apply the settings on the driver's side to the passenger's side.

The Sync program can be used to apply the settings on the driver's side to the passenger's side and the rear.

Switching the SYNC program on/off

1. "CAR".

2. "Settings".

3. "Climate control".

4. "Synchronize".

Depending on the equipment, the following settings of the driver's side can be transferred to the front-passenger side and the rear:

The program is switched off automatically if the settings on the front passenger side or in the rear are changed.

Defrost function

Principle

Ice and condensation are quickly removed from the windshield and the front side windows.

Switching the Defrost function on/off

Press the button.

The LED of the button is illuminated when the system is switched on.

The air flow can be adjusted manually with the system switched on.

If there is window condensation, switch on the AUTO program or the air conditioning to utilize the condensation sensor. Make sure that air can flow to the windshield.

Rear window defroster

Principle

Ice and condensation are removed from the rear window quickly.

Functional requirement

The function is operational when the drive-ready state is switched on.

Switching rear window defroster on/off

Press the button. The LED is illuminated with rear window defroster switched on.

The rear window defroster switches off automatically after a certain period of time.

Microfilter/activated-charcoal filter

The microfilter removes dust and pollen from the incoming air.

The activated-charcoal filter also removes gaseous pollutants from the outside air that enters the vehicle.

Have this combined filter changed during vehicle maintenance.
