I am not sure if you have the digital Heat & A/C control... the digital takes time depending on temperatures to become stable and comfortable. It does try to bring it to the setpoint quickly causing (what I think) excessive fan speed, but is easily adjustable by slowing down the fan.speardiver said:Hi. Long time no post. Has anyone had any problems w/the air not blowing out at a consistent temperature? Any info is appreciated. Thanks.
The RTS has the same digital (automatic) controls as the RTL; it's only the RT that has the all-manual system.TheRidgester said:I am not sure if you have the digital Heat & A/C control... the digital takes time depending on temperatures to become stable and comfortable.

This is one reason I went with remote start. Today 20 degrees outside, started the truck 5 minutes before I left and with the auto a/c on and all was perfect.
Once your truck reaches normal temperatures, the temperature should remain constant, but take into consideration outside and cab conditions that may need compensating to make it comfortable. If this is not the case I would let Honda look at it.. If they do, and find no problem.. let them show you in another RL that what you have is normal, as sometimes they avoid fixing things and making people live with problems... most cost effective for them to do that
The system does start blowing hot air out to warm the cabin quicker, then the temperature coming from the vents will cool to more closely match the temperature you set. Otherwise it would take forever to warm up. I usually start with mine at 68 to 70 in the morning, then gradually go up to 72 or 74 once the cabin gets up close to where I want it. This lets the cabin warm quickly without burning me out.laserfan said:I am having problems, too, using the heater for the first time really since acquiring the Ridge 1st week of March. Today it was 55degF here (cold!), but sunny, and I had the Ridge on Auto, it kept blasting hot air out at me. Dial the temp back, dial back, dial back, still hot air. Turn the damn thing off. Try just touching "Mode", finally get some cool air coming out. Fiddle with Mode--can't see the icons worth a damn. Twiddle the temp knob, put it on Lo and gradually dial it back up. Finally got it to where it was comfortable.
For my money the heating control (as with the rest of the instrumentation & electronics) sucks, big-time. Auto does not seem to work "at all". Guess we will ask the dealer about it when we take it in for an oil change.
Our issue is consistent with your own. Maybe there is hope that we simply have something mis-wired as Ultra-HOG suggested.LeXRidge said:...I've had other vehicles with climate control, and always ran them comfortably at 72...
