Solar Panel Control Unit

Note: N34/1 is located above the glove box, the dash pad must be removed to access.


Solar Panels
(G6) • 24 Solar panels • 8 on front • 16 on rear Provides interior ventilation based on: • AC control unit inactive • Ambient temperature (sensor located in N34/1) • Solar energy


In-car Temperature Sensors

B10/4 with aspirator

N70b1 with aspirator


Humidity Sensor (B31/2)
(2 Zone only) Measures humidity, value used to determine compressor control


Multi Function Sensor (B31)
(4 Zone only) Measures: • ambient temperature • humidity • pollution concentration Inputs used for: • calculating climate control • actuating the compressor • recirculation based on pollution (AC "ON", >7oC, activated filter button actuated)
