    Default heater problem

    Bit of a strange question this one

    My Signum has the fully automated heater set up

    ie, i can have the fans on any speed from 1-7

    or have AUTO on and let the car sort itself out with the aircon

    my question is, is it possible to choose where the heat goes??


    reason i ask is, i suffer with heat retention (not sure with the correct terminology) i burn up, even in the middle of winter my body temp can get so hot i will literally get sunburn under my clothes,

    at the moment as the weather has been a bit cold, ive had the heater on at 19 degrees which is plenty warm enough for me, but my feet are now on fire and my skin is peeling off and bleeds like crazy (not a pretty site)

    my last car had the option to direct the heat to where you wanted it, regardless of the auto feature


    if it comes to it, ill just tape the feet vents with gaffer tape

    Do you have the Climate Control? If so, push the big button (the fan speed one) and you get a menu on the screen. Here you can chose all the options for where you want the air to go.

    Air quality is supposed to auto switch to recirc in bad air quality areas i believe. Did you also know that if you alter the passenger temp so it sdifferent from the drivers side, you can push the drivers heat control and it will then adjust both sides at the same time!

    (do I get a free pint too )
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
