The Chill Zone Beverage Cooler Storage Compartment can keep chilled beverages cool depending on ambient temperature and climate control setting. Chill Zone is intended for nonperishable beverages only.

The Chill Zone compartment is located on the passenger side of the instrument panel above the glove compartment.

The beverage retainer inside the cooler is designed to hold up to two 12 oz (0.35L) cans when placed horizontally in the retainer. The beverage retainer is removable to allow for storage of other items in the compartment when not in use as a beverage cooler.

Chill Zone Beverage Cooler Operation

The blower speed setting on the climate control sets the rate at which the air flows into the compartment. The airflow control valve inside the compartment determines how much air flows into the compartment. Turning the valve rearward increases the airflow, while turning the valve forward decreases the airflow. Turning the valve all the way forward will turn off the airflow into the compartment.

The compartment cools when the airflow is open, the engine is running and the Air Conditioning (A/C) is on or the Automatic Temperature Control (ATC) system is set for automatic operation (if equipped). This allows you to cool the compartment when the climate control is in the cooling or heating mode.

NOTE: Whether operating a Manual Heating and A/C system or operating an ATC system in the manual mode, the A/C indicator must be ON to cool the compartment.
