This guide will show you how to enable ‘Pollution Mode’ on your Holden VE Commodore. Suits most Series 1 and Series 2 models.

When enabled, pollution mode automatically selects air re-circulation when the vehicle speed is less than 15 km/h. This is aimed at preventing exhaust fumes entering the cabin in stop/start traffic or whilst waiting at the traffic lights. Upon reaching a speed higher than 15 km/h, the air re-circulation is turned off. This happens continuously whilst pollution mode is enabled. It essentially allows outside air to only enter the cabin when the vehicle is moving at speed.

Step 1

To switch on or off, press and hold ‘re-circulation’ for 4 seconds.

Step 2

Pollution Mode ON or Pollution Mode OFF appears on the display.

    Hi, this does not seem to work. The vents just make mechanical moving noise regardless of how long it’s held for.

      That’s odd, I’ve never seen this fail on a Series 2 VE. Check your owners manual, It should be in there as well.
