To all owners with 2011 Focus' with Climate Control.

Can you get yours to display MONO rather than AUTO as per the manual description ?

If I adjust the Drivers side controls both the driver and passenger temperatures adjust.
If I adjust the Passenger control, only the passenger side adjusts as expected. (Holding the AUTO button synchronises the Passenger and Drivers settings again).

However the Climate Control unit always displays AUTO, it never switches to MONO. Perhaps its just another vague insrtuction in the very vague manual ?

Thanks

Hi, does your manual say this:

To switch mono mode off:

Select a temperature for the passenger’s
side with the rotary control on the
passenger’s side. Mono mode will switch
off and MONO disappears from the
display. The temperature for the driver’s
side will remain unchanged. You can now
adjust the driver and passenger side
temperatures independently of each
another. The temperature settings for
each side are shown in the display. You
can set a temperature difference of up to
4ºC (7°F).
Note: If you set a temperature difference
of greater than 4ºC (7°F), the temperature
on the other side will be adjusted so that
the difference remains 4ºC (7°F).
Note: If you set one of the sides to HI or
LO, both sides will be set to HI or LO.

To switch mono mode back on:

To switch mono mode back on, press
and hold the AUTO button. MONO
reappears in the display and the
passenger’s side temperature will be
adjusted to the driver’s side temperature.

Says that exactly but Climate display always shows AUTO. The MONO text never appears ??

Hi, I can't try mine yet so I guess that you need to seek advice from the dealership if it isn't working the way it should....

It appears to work ok, function wise but just doesn't display the MONO text ?

Hold you're finger on the auto button for a few seconds then mono will be displayed

Ok, read manual again and again, tried climate again and again. Deffo no MONO mode.

Drove past local dealers today and he has brand new Titanium model in prep for Thursday. Asked to see the climate in operation and no MONO message on that car either. Salesman reckons it is the manual that is incorrect, and says it is not unusual as things get lost in translation etc.

Hi, true, no big deal anyway. I remember the manual for the mondeo describing the A/C in the glovebox, however it isn't fitted in my car at all. There is a clause on the front pages that says this:

Hi oilburner

The climate operates both sides as you describe just the MONO text isn't displayed - what model Focus is yours, not that it should matter ?
cuke
Hi, nope, holding down the auto button does not result in 'mono' being displayed. Yet to test the start stop...

So the AUTO - MONO debate continues............
cuke
Hi, to me there is no need for any further debate as it is something I will not be using. Maybe in the future Ford will release a update, who knows...

Why an update, seems some owners have it and some don't yet it is the same system. Very strange ??

Just for your info my Focus Titanium registered in November 2012 does this too.  Holding the Auto button allows both temperatures to be set from the drivers control, but MONO isn't displayed, even though the manual says it should
