Air Conditioning Use and Maintenance

The RANGER XP 1000 EPS NorthStar Edition and RANGER CREW XP 1000 EPS NorthStar Edition feature factory-installed heating and air conditioning.

The HVAC control panel, pictured below, can be found in the center of the vehicle's dash.

To operate the cab heater, rotate the fan control (1) to the desired fan speed setting. The far left setting turns the fan off.

Adjust the temperature by rotating the temperature control (2) to the desired heat setting. Rotate the control clockwise to increase heat or counter-clockwise to decrease heat. 

Press the top of the A/C switch (3) to enable the air conditioning system for cooling or defrost purposes.

Condenser Cleaning
Washing the vehicle with a high-pressure hose could damage the radiator fins and impair the radiator's effectiveness. Using a high-pressure system is not recommended.

The condenser is located at the front of the vehicle, behind the grille. To clean your condenser, do the following:

1. Stop the machine on a flat, level surface. Place the gear selector in PARK. Stop the engine and exit the vehicle.

2. Remove the front grille of the vehicle by pushing down on the two grille tabs (1) and pull the top of the grille toward the front of the vehicle.

3. Use low pressure air or water to clean the condenser.

4. Reinstall the front grille and ensure it is snapped into place.
