after the time is set. You will also see a little red light above or below the timer button. Depending on if you chose T1 or T2.

How do you set the timer?

When I push the timer button on the OBC, it reads "Off Vent"...if I push it again it reads "T1----" more push and it reads "T2----"....Does anyone know what the heck this thing does? I thought I had read something about circulation within the car but I can't figure it out. Thanks.

On earlier OBC's (like pre-92??) the timer button was just that...a timer. Then it was decided that it would be nice if you could blow outside air into the car just before you returned so that it would be cooler. you can set 2 times (ie-T1 & T2, either or both) when you want this function to work. Hope this answers the question.
