Cabin Heat
Experiencing a lot of cabin heat in a 2005 XRunner. Never used my heater (live in Hawaii) and with the A/C off heat seems to be coming from under the dash. Also note the area in front of the shifter is hot to the touch as well as the transmission console on the passenger side.

Anyone else have this problem. Thinking of taking it in to the dealer for a look see but warranty has expired.

has it become worse over time? cause if not its prob. just the heat from the engine...

Yes, getting worse. Never used to do this before. Started about 6 months ago.

could be the firewall inulation is getting old and worn...you never know. i had this happen with my dads truck (auto v6) and i just thought it was normal, but now that i think about it, it was a little more than normal.
