Anyone have issues with the vent controls? The flow when the heater is used is significantly weaker and it doesn’t get very warm? And yes the vents are open...
I did. I should be a bit more clear, the heating is working fine if I manually set the temp and the airflow. However, if I set the temp with "auto" on, the fan and heat is very low. I mean it was cold and I set the temp at max with "auto" on but it was not blasting heat. When I do this manually, set max heat with full fan, it is crazy hot. So I'm thinking if there is something wrong with the "auto" heating. Can't really try the AC yet. Can anyone try to use the heat with "auto" setting to see if it works?Did you toggle through the vent modes it does not always stay in the appropriate setting with 2 arrows for front and bottom as opposed to defrost etc. Then choose fan speed.
I had the exact opposite experience: left the Palisade on auto, and I had condensation building up on the windshield. I use the front defogger to clear it up, but as soon as I set it back to auto, the condensation was back.Agree on Sync not on Auto exactly and similar behavior in my old Odyssey. The priority with AUTO seems to be to keep the Windows Clear of Fog and that is where most of the Fan and air noise are. I just tried this in my Palisade at 35 degrees F /61 percent Humidity and a couple minutes of idle and local drive and used Auto. You can hear the fans kick over to by the Dash front windshield. As soon as I changed the temp or flow back to me I had heat. As soon as hit Auto it returns to working on the windshield. If I recall from the manual it uses a combination of heat and AC to to Auto keep the windows clear. Of course it can not "see" the windows. Well I do not think it can lol It does watch the driver's attention.
In short there are so many variables, Humidity, inside temp, outside temp, windshield temp, distance of front passengers to windshield breathing on it, engine temp, etc.
-I do not think we can expect warmth of passenger to be the 1st priority. I will also say I have always hated Auto in other cars because I like the fans on around 1 or 2 out of 5 or they make too much noise. Auto tends to keep them around 4/5, Noisy and usually goes for the wind shield vents. Also I had no fog on my windows when I changed it back to the way I wanted.... Fans on me
