Parked car ventilation

The concept

The parked car ventilation provides ventilation to the passenger compartment and lowers its temperature, if necessary.

The parked car ventilation system is operated via iDrive. Two different switch-on times can be preselected.

The parked car ventilation remains switched on for approx. 30 minutes. The system can also be switched on and off directly. Due to its high power consumption, it should not be switched on twice in a row without driving in between to allow the battery to recharge.

The parked car ventilation system comes on if the outside temperature is above 59 7/15 6 when the switch-on time was preselected, but is ready for use at any temperature when the system is switched on directly.

The air emerges from the air vents for the upper body area in the instrument panel. The air vents must therefore be open.
