You can program two times per day for the ventilation system to come on. It will come on at the programmed time and stay on for 30 minutes I believe. I program T1 for about 25 minutes before lunch and T2 about 25 minutes before quitting time.

To set the time, push timer button until T1 displays. Then use 1000 key to enter AM/PM, 100 key for hours, 10 key for 10's of minutes, 1 key for single minutes. When desired turn on time is set, then press S/R to enter the time. The red-LED on the left of the button will come on. Do the exact process to setup up T2 and the LED on the right side will come on to show that the vent timer is activated.

After the vent timer has activated and run you need to reset it before it will run again. It will remember the time, you just need to cycle through and hit the S/R button to re-activate it.

Hope this helps

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.
