Hey everyone,

When I turn the heat on in my car in the morning, regardless of which climate control mode/setting I chose (upper air flow, lower air flow, front windshield defrost), or which mode it was in the last time the car was on, it automatically turns it on to max.

And then when I turn it down a little after the car warms up or after the windshield defrosts, let's say I'll turn it down to one or two dots, and then if I switch the mode from say "upper air flow" to "front defrost," or vice versa, regardless of what it was set to, it automatically goes to max when I switch from one to the other.

So I constantly find myself lowering down the airflow while driving.

Is it supposed to work like this? I've looked through the owners manual and I've looked through different settings in the car but can't find a way to adjust this. Is this possible?

Are you setting the temp to max heat? If so that’s normal behavior. If not I’d say have Honda look at it

Take a video and play with the controls, I'm interested in seeing the settings and how the fan reacts. I've left mine on 75 degrees full auto since I bought it Monday, haven't had a chance to play with the climate controls much yet.

I’ll add that the behavior on mine does seem different compared to my 10th gen. I kept it between 70-72F all the time but I feel like on the 11th gen it needs to be more like 74-75F to feel the same. I’ve only had my 11th gen for a few weeks but my first impression is that it might be factoring in the outside temperature and I’m not sure the 10th gen did that. When it’s a little warmer outside (I mean 50’s instead of 40’s) I have to turn the temp all the way up to Hi to get the fans going even when the engine’s already warmed up. That said, I like to just leave it on Auto and adjust only the temp.
