Ford Escape. Control (DATC) Press and release the button to switch on maximum defrost.

The system sets the left-hand and right-hand settings to HI, air flows through the windshield air vents, and the blower motor adjusts to the highest speed.

Switching Recirculated Air On and Off

Ford Escape. Control (DATC) Press and release the button to switch between outside air and recirculated air.

The air currently in the passenger compartment recirculates. This may reduce the time needed to cool the interior, when used with A/C, and reduce unwanted odors from entering your vehicle.

Note: Recirculated air may turn off, or prevent you from switching on, in all air flow modes except MAX A/C to reduce the risk of fogging. Recirculation may also turn on and off in various air distribution control combinations during hot weather to improve cooling efficiency.
