2009 Nissan 370Z Touring: How Do You Turn on the A/C?

May 04, 2009


A couple of weeks ago when we had a bout of hot weather in L.A., I praised our 2009 Nissan 370Z's dark interior for miraculously remaining cool despite the car's being left outside during the hottest part of the day. I forgot to mention, however, that at first glance I couldn't find out how to turn on the A/C to further cool things down.

I mean, looking at the above picture (taken from my POV in the driver seat), can you find the air-conditioner button? Of course I'm only addressing those who aren't Nissan car owners.


Yup, there it is. Under the fan button. Of course from the driver's POV that script is concealed by the protruding button itself.

Naturally, this won't be an issue to actual owners of this car. But maybe this is a good way to keep "friends" from wanting to borrow your Z this summer. "Sorry, it doesn't have an A/C. You can look for yourself."
