Rear Climate Control Settings

How do you set the rear temp & fan settings differently than the front? I know the rear will match the front using the sync function. I can see the rear settings on the front control panel but that's it. The owner's manual talks about a rear climate control panel but my BE doesn't have one. What am I missing?

My Canadian Black Edition with auto-comfort when using remote starter.:grin:

And Canadian Trims are named differently ?? so I'm a little confused.
Canadian -->> 5 Trims

USA-->> 7 Trims

Move up north a little and you would want heated seats like your afternoon Temp was 80 degrees feeling like 85.
Washington, DC was 94 degrees but feeling like 100 . Winter Temps are going to be more often times colder in early morning or late evening. I had 94 Accord new at time for 6yrs ownership. At time when I got it was working evening shift not getting off until 10-11PM. The car heated better than 1990 Accord that I had being a newer redesigned model but 90 had cloth 94 had leather. But the initial getting into the car at night making the 30min trip home was chilly sometime. Now when I got my 00 Acura TL with leather heated seats a world of difference. I can compensate for the hot leather with A/C and using a heat shield sun shade when vehicle is parked. With tinted windows even better. I had loaner 2017 RDX Black/Black with perforated seats non ventilated when it was hot back in June. A/C was fine in this vehicle seats were comfortable and interior cooled good enough. If it had the sunshield and front door tint it would have been better. This is the same color combo on the Black Edition Ridgeline that I will get whenever.
Might be a nice feature having ventilated seats but I could work around them with remote start to cool interior down before entering.

page 181 in the owner's manual stated that the center rear is NOT heated ! :nerd:

an after thought... I have the OEM rear seats cover... it basically defeat the purpose of the heated seats... normally it's just barely an extra thick layer of material on top...not a will just put a strain on the whole system..etc.

I got a, basically just give up that feature usage, choosing to upkeep the interior instead... ( never had the need for this feature in the past...kinda like luxury...nice to have, but rarely used...etc. ) :smile:
