Default Very weird question about a 2000 TL

In the winter I run my heat between 75-80. I like full mode because I like
the heat coming from the bottom of the inside of the car.

Problem is: (and it's taken me years to figure out why), but the heat blows
directly on my right foot (I drive a lot), makes my right foot sweat and I
get athletes feet, but just on the one foot.

Whacky, I know, but do you guys have any suggestions?

Jeff

That's a common problem with Honda & Acura. Mine does it too. Not
much you can do unless you want to try partially blocking the opening
where it bothers you.

Wear lighter footwear.

Drives me nuts too. Most cars seem to do that.

Mine used to do that, too, and it really aggravated me until I came
up with a good solution. I simply got an axe and chopped my
foot clean off at the ankel bone and now it doesn't sweat any.
Bleeds a little bit, aches some, but it don't sweat none. Make sure
your axe is real sharp because if it is sort of dull liken mine was it'll
hurt a lot after the first few whacks. I barely could chop thru that
big old bone on the fifth swing, but the good Lord saw me thru it all
and now "no more sweaty feet". Well sweaty foot I mean. And
dont wear no good britches or socks because they'll get to looking
right bad in a hurry. And you might want to get a sock or towell
or something to bite on while you whack away.

Now I got to just figure out a way to keep my little feller from
dribbling when Im done with my business ...

I figured. Maybe a sponge or something. I was thinking some sort of
deflector or something.

Give you athletes foot/feet? Maaaaaan... I'm 48 and never had it on ONE
foot. Gotta be sumpthin' out there. Maybe not.

Basically.... Dumb design, IMO...

Pretty much all cars will do this, if you let them.
I never use my auto-climate control in the winter. Instead I use manual
control to blow max. heat until the interior warms up sufficiently for
me to adjust the fan speed down to a more reasonable level. I keep the
interior at about 67F or so. 75-80F in auto mode during the winter is
the problem, not the 2000 TL.

Alternatively, you could get one of those remote starters and let the
car idle and warm up for 10 or 20 minutes before you get in. Once the
interior is warm you should be able to run the auto-climate control at
70F and avoid the hot foot experience. Yeah, idling is bad but perhaps
not so bad as athlete's foot.

I've just personally experienced this before, so it's weird to me...

OK... Agreed. Sounds like a smart thing to do.

Thanks,

Jeff

My Dad's ML350 does the same thing. Blows on the right foot. Not sure
why. It never got sweaty though.
