As a driver for more decades than I care to admit, I don't need a warning light for low fuel. I'm cognizant of such things. Even if I were slacking in the fuel level awareness department, the presence of an unusual light, regardless of it's location, is more than sufficient warning when glancing at gauges. Which a conscientious driver does with regularity. How's this for logic? The low fuel warning light is located by the fuel gauge. What a concept!The way dust pours through his vents is unforgivable.
Correct you are Mr. Nick. The equalization vents you mentioned are located on the R & L sides of the rear cabin wall. Little plastic inserts with flaps they rest in closed position until motion of the vehicle or air pressure inside the cabin causes their position to change. Unless those pressure conditions get in a wonky state, they shouldn't allow dust to back flow into the cabin, and even if that happens, the dust would have to travel a circuitous route to cause the issue in the OP video.^^^^^^^^^^ agree 100%
Now with respect to the dust.... the only times I had "issues" with dust, had to do with how it absolutely INVADES the bed if you have a closed tonneau cover, but never installed any dust seals around the tailgate. I couldn't believe how much difference it made when I finally put some dust seals back there.
I do know that there are cabin vents behind the rear seat (right?), and I'm guessing that's probably where any dust entering the cabin would be coming from, but only if you don't have positive pressure in the cabin (as in a/c, heat, or vent fan on??).
If the implication I picked up was that you want to be able to drive with the windows down & not get any dust in the cabin while driving on dusty roads (????), all I can suggest is some good hallucinogens..... cause that's the only way that's going to happen. :act024:
Wireless,I think these will be my final comments on this as I have nothing to gain by remaining involved.
The cabin air filter was in place. I replaced it several times, trying different brands in hopes of fixing the problem.
I spent a considerable amount of time searching for the issue over my 27 months of ownership - that makes so much sense that I felt it didn't need to be said.
I have driven many other vehicles in these same conditions. None of them shot dust through the vents like the Ridgeline.
I have spoken with a few people in Honda service centres. Without fail, when I told them I was trying to fix the dust issue in my Ridgeline, they didn't ask "what issue", they KNEW what I was talking about, and served up the party line each time.
I have spoken with other owners, and seen a few comments on this forum regarding this issue, but I have yet to hear from someone who drives with the window cracked open in dusty conditions who doesn't have this issue.
