CLIMATE CONTROLLED SEATS (if so equipped)
The climate-controlled seat cools down the front seats by blowing cool air from the surface of the seat. The switches located on the instrument panel can be operated independently of each other.
- Start the engine.
- Push the climate-controlled seat switch to cool the seat. The indicator light on the corresponding switch will illuminate depending on the cool level.
- Adjust the desired amount of air by pushing the switch again. The climate-controlled seat blower remains on low speed for approximately 60 seconds after pushing the switch on.
- When the vehicle’s interior is warmed or cooled, or before you leave the vehicle, be sure to turn off the climate-controlled seats. To turn off the climate-controlled seats, push the switch until the indicator light turns off.
- To check the air filters for the climate-controlled seat, it is recommended you visit a NISSAN dealer.
Do not use or allow occupants to use the climate-controlled seats if you or the occupants cannot monitor seat temperatures or have an inability to feel pain in those body parts in contact with the seat. Use of the climate-controlled seats by such people could result in serious injury.
The battery could run down if the climate-controlled seat is operated while the engine is not running. Do not use the climate-controlled seat for extended periods or when no one is using the seat. Do not put anything on the seat that insulates heat, such as a blanket, cushion, seat cover, etc. Otherwise, the seat may become overheated. Do not place anything hard or heavy on the seat or pierce it with a pin or similar object. This may result in damage to the climate-controlled seat. Any liquid spilled on the seat should be removed immediately with a dry cloth. The climate-controlled seat has an air filter. Do not operate climate controlled seat without an air filter. This may result in damage to the system. When cleaning the seat, never use gasoline, thinner, or any similar materials. If any malfunctions are found or the climate-controlled seat does not operate, turn the switch off and have the system checked. It is recommended you visit a NISSAN dealer for this service.
WARNING SYSTEMS SWITCH (if so equipped)
The warning systems switch is used to turn on and off the warning systems (Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Blind Spot Warning (BSW) systems) that are activated using the “Driver Assistance” menu displayed in the vehicle information display. When the warning systems switch is turned off, the indicator on the switch is off. The indicator will also be off if all of the warning systems are deactivated using the settings menu. The LDW system will vibrate the steering wheel and blink the Lane Departure Warning (LDW) indicator light (orange) to alert the driver if the vehicle is travelling close to either the left or the right of a traveling lane with detectable lane markers. The BSW system will turn on the side indicator lights, on the outside mirrors, if the radar sensors detect a vehicle in the detection zone. If the turn signal is activated in the direction of the detected vehicle, a chime sounds twice and the side indicator light will flash.
SNOW MODE SWITCH
For driving or starting the vehicle on snowy roads or slippery areas, push on the SNOW mode switch. The SNOW mode indicator will illuminate. When the SNOW mode is activated, engine output is controlled to avoid wheel spin. Push off the SNOW mode for normal driving.
When the SNOW mode is activated, the I-LI, I-BSI, and ICC systems will be turned off automatically.
TOW MODE SWITCH
TOW MODE Nissan Armada should be used when pulling a heavy trailer or hauling a heavy load. Driving the vehicle in TOW MODE with no trailer/load or light trailer/light load will not cause any damage. However, fuel economy may be reduced, and the transmission/engine driving characteristics may feel unusual. Push the TOW MODE switch to activate TOW MODE Nissan Armada. The indicator light on the TOW MODE switch illuminates when TOW MODE is selected. Push the TOW MODE switch again to turn TOW MODE OFF. TOW MODE is automatically canceled when the ignition switch is placed in the OFF position.
VEHICLE DYNAMIC CONTROL (VDC) OFF SWITCH
The vehicle should be driven with the Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) system on for most driving conditions. If the vehicle is stuck in mud or snow, the VDC system reduces the engine output to reduce wheel spin. The engine speed will be reduced even if the accelerator is depressed to the floor. If maximum engine power is needed to free a stuck vehicle, turn the VDC system off. To turn off the VDC system, push the VDC OFF switch. The indicator will illuminate. Push the VDC OFF switch again or restart the engine to turn on the system.
TRAILER BRAKE CONTROLLER UNIT (TBCU) (if so equipped)
The TBCU on the instrument panel allows the driver to adjust the braking force applied to the trailer brakes.
REAR DOOR ALERT
The Rear Door Alert system functions under certain conditions to indicate there may be an object or passenger in the rear seat(s). Check the seat(s) before exiting the vehicle. The Rear Door Alert system is initially enabled. The driver can disable the system using the vehicle information display.
When the system is enabled:
The system is activated when a rear door is opened and closed. When the vehicle is started and the system is activated, a visual message appears in the vehicle information display. If a rear door is opened and closed but the vehicle is not driven, the system will not be activated. A rear door must be opened and closed and the car driven for the system to activate. The time interval to activate the system between when the rear door is opened and closed and when the vehicle is started is about 10 minutes. A longer interval does not indicate a malfunction.
When the Rear Door Alert system is activated:
- When the driver puts the vehicle in the P (Park) position, a notification message appears in the vehicle information display with the options to “Dismiss Message” or “Disable Alert” if desired.
- Select “Disable Alert” to temporarily disable that stop.
- No selection or ‘Dismiss Message” will keep the alert enabled for that stop.
- If the alert is enabled when a driver exits the vehicle, a message will appear in the vehicle information display that states “Check Rear Seat for All Articles.”
If the “Horn & Alert” setting is selected:
- An audible horn sound will occur after a short time unless a rear door is opened and closed within a short time to deactivate the alert.
- If the doors are locked before the
alert is deactivated by opening a rear door, the horn will sound.
- If the liftgate is opened before a rear door is opened, the horn will be delayed until after the liftgate is closed.
If the “Alert Only” setting is selected, the message alert will still be shown in the vehicle information display but the horn will not sound.
If the driver selects “Disable Alert”, no audible alert will be provided regardless of the rear door open/close status. There may be times when there is an object or passenger in the rear seat(s) but the audible alert does not sound. For example, this may occur if rear-seat passengers enter or exit the vehicle during a trip. The system does not directly detect objects or passengers in the rear seat(s). Instead, it can detect when a rear door is opened and closed, indicating that there may be something in the rear seat(s).
There may be times when the horn sounds but there are no objects or passengers in the rear seat(s).
Use power outlet with the engine running to avoid discharging the vehicle battery. Avoid using a power outlet when the air conditioner, headlights or rear window defroster is on.

Only a Qi-compatible smartphone can be used. The smartphone or the wireless charger may be warmed during the charging process and the charging may stop by the protection function of the smartphone or the wireless charger. This is not a malfunction. If this occurs, restart charging after the smartphone or the wireless charger cooled down. The indicator will blink in orange then turn off. The wireless charging process may be stopped by the status of the smartphone (battery temperature, etc.). If radio noise interference occurs during the charging process, put the smartphone in the center ( logo) position of the wireless charger. The wireless charging process will stop during the process of searching for the Intelligent Key. The wireless charging process will not be started when a USB (Universal Serial Bus) cable is connected to the smartphone. The indicator may illuminate in orange or blink if the smartphone is put on the wireless charger with a USB cable connected. However, charging is not performed. Depending on the type of smartphone, the indicator may remain illuminated in orange even when the charging process has been completed.
