‘17 5 seater X heating problem


May 19, 2015
Hello all,

I have a Model X which was the first iteration I think of the 5 seater. My wife noticed that the passenger side heating is poor relative to the left. Its as though the custom controls for driver vs passenger temp don’t matter and auto seems to be the only mode that works for the passenger- even then it is still weaker on the right. I can confirm by being the passenger. Has anyone seen this? Any idea what the cost would be? We opted out if the extended service agreement as I drive 25k miles per year and getting a 4 year warranty that would last 2 for a little over $5k didn’t make sense. I’m guessing this is not a new issue but has been there.

I would compare the impedance on both seats with an Ohm meter. I'll bet the reading is lower on the passenger seat. Call your local service center for the specification.
