Air conditioning
On Phase 1 manually-operated. Automatic on Phase 2 and 3.
Phase 1. Refrigerant fluid used is an ecological Freon R134a. Air conditioning circuit comprises of a: compressor, condenser, evaporator and drier filter. If the car has only a heater, the evaporator in the ducting/distribution unit is not present. On the pipe connecting the condenser to the evaporator there is a 3-level pressure swith, which acts as a system control and safety device, protecting the circuit against over and underpressures. From 6/1996 there is a 4-way pressure switch. On the 2.0 TS engines there is also an antifrost pressure switch.
2.0 TS uses Nippondenso TV14SC compressor.
3.0 V6 12V and 2.0 V6 TB uses Sanden SD7V16 with variable displacement.
Phase 2. Automatic temperature climate control. A specific ECU handles the control operations. System uses internal and external NTC temperature sensors with total of 4. Probably electronic system is managed by Harrison Climate Control.

Two airbags
Driver’s as standard, passenger’s as an option to install or later as an option to remove.
