Did they say what has an open heat circuit?Is this an oxygen sensor open heater or an interior component with the open heat circuit?
Was anything replaced for this open heat circuit fault?
O.k.,this is a difficult question for me to answer myself here but others here may have the info you need.
I will open your question up for others here to see if someone else can assist further on this as there may be others here that may have more info on what to check or do with this issue.I hope you can get this resolved with ease.No need to reply to my last post here unless it is a last resort as it will keep your question locked to me and others will not be able to view it.If you feel you want to continue to work with me on this feel free to reply at any time but keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair this without seeing your vehicle.
Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). I'm here to help 365 days a year, but not every hour of the day. I try to prevent delays as much as possible. Please understand I am not there and can only advise based on what you tell me. Let's get started.
I believe in your case it is the heat from the transmission causing the center console to get hotter. When towing the transmission is alot hotter. My recommendation is to monitor the trans oil temp not towning and then again while towing to see if you are pushing it to hard and may need to do changes to the trans cooler setup.

You're welcome. I do recommend a larger cooler and new fluid and if needed an extra fan.
I can help with an engine concern on a new post. I am only allowed to help on this hit transmission concern on this post. Do you need any more help with that or are you pleased with my help?
