Re: HVAC Issue

Mine is opposite. Climate set on 73F. 72 blows ice cold air. 74 will roast a turkey.
Had the most current flash performed. I generally remote start, but am inside the vehicle within 30-45 seconds of doing so. Has been almost the exact temp in the mornings when I start it. Get in one morning, and fan is blowing so hard that I felt like the guy from the Maxxel cassete tape commercial from back in the day... with heat coming from defrost and foot untill I press the start button then it switches to low speed fan. Get in next morning, fan on #1 and full heat coming from vent only. 3rd morning, fan on #1 and lead smelting heat coming from defrost and floor vents. Get in vehicle about an hour later and the air coming from the vent is 60-65ish.

My 2011 HVAC operation was perfect. This one is a far cry from being comfortable without having to constantly adjust the driver & passenger temp. Output temperature is very erratic. From driving the vehicle through out the day, sometimes when you get inside, it's quite pleasant. Other times when you enter the vehicle, I honestly think the heater is trying to kill me.

Re: HVAC Issue

I brought up a concern on MY15 Overland twice with the ac/heater. Took it in for my first oil change at 5k because I was going to be towing my boat from Phoenix to Lake Powell and wanted fresh oil. I told them that I could hear a funny sound coming from under the passenger side of the dash. They didn't hear anything. 2 months later I took it in because the blower motor would blow intermittently. It would be working fine, and then just shut off, sometimes for a couple days. Then on the way to the dealer it starts working again...go figure! Again, they found nothing wrong since it performed as normal while they had it. 2 weeks ago, it went out again along with my Uconnect screen. I could hear the radio and navigation but I could not turn the volume up or down or anything..no response from the screen. I couldn't even turn it off. I shut the vehicle down a few times and restarted and still nothing. This happened on our way to a wedding. After the wedding I got in and started it up and everything was fine. Then this past Saturday, it went out again. I drove straight to the dealer to show them proof. My advisor took it back to the shop foreman and he saw for himself that it wasn't working. Set up an appointment to be dropped of yesterday morning because they were getting ready to close when I got there and they are closed on Sundays anyways so no point in leaving it there. They have it now and I'm waiting to hear back from them.

Re: HVAC Issue

You probably need a new headunit.

That's what I'm thinking. Still waiting to hear back from them.
