CAUTION

  • The climate control system seat is a supplementary cooling and warming system. Use the climate control seat when the climate control system is on. Using the climate control seat for prolonged periods of time with the climate control system off could cause the climate control seat performance to be reduced.

  • When cleaning the seats, do not use an organic solvent such as thinner, benzene, alcohol and gasoline. Doing so may damage the surface of the seats.

  • Do not spill liquid such as water or beverages on the surface of the front seats and seatbacks, or the air vent holes may be blocked and prevented from working properly.

  • Do not place materials such as plastic bags or newspapers under the seats. The air vent may not work properly as the air intake can be blocked.

  • When the air vent does not operate, restart the vehicle. If there is no change, we recommend that the system be inspected by an authorized EQUUS dealer.


  • Before using the climate control system seat, remove the sticker attached to the rear air vent. If not, the cooling and warming performance may decrease.
