Hot air through floor in 99 Suburban when blower is switched off

I the short answer is yes. The truck has a flow-thru vent feature as does most GM products. When the fan switch is off the outside air would flow into the truck.
I thought you could still direct the air by way of the control panel, but by the wiring diagram it looks like everything is disabled when the fan switch is in the off position.

I have a 2006 Tahoe with rear and front blowers and climate control. The front air stopped operating, but rear works fine. I replaced the blower motor resistor and air immediately started working again. ...

Hello: Remove the panel under the passenger side of the dash, look to front of truck, you will see the blower, follow the wires from the blower motor to the module, remove the connector and see if the terminals are burnt. If so GM has a repair harness to replace the burnt connector, if you need it make sure you have the connector positioned correctly so you get the wires in the proper order. In some cases the module may also be burned and if so it should also be replaced.

AC blow cold aire and after maybe 1/2 hour blow hot Im take to the Kia service repsir and they check and said is a 45 all ok

  • Start the car and turn the air conditioning on. Allow the engine to run a few minutes so the air can cool. Check to make sure you have the proper buttons selected. This simple step may uncover the root of the problem.
  • See if the problem is as simple as a blown fuse. If the temperature controls on the dashboard seem to work correctly but have no effect on the air, then this is likely the problem. Find the interior fuse box in a Kia on the driver's side. It is located near the floor. Remove the kick board to get to it.
  • Check the control panel next in your Kia . If the air conditioning controls are not working at all, then the control panel is likely to blame. Remove the trim plate surrounding the center instrument panel. Detach the electrical connectors and remove the control panel.
  • Listen for the blower motor while the engine is running. The sound should increase when the air pressure is turned to high. Remove the blower motor by first unplugging the negative battery connection.
  • Find the blower motor in your Kia directly in front of the glove box. You should be able to get to the blower motor without removing the glove box. Unscrew the four screws holding the motor into place and pull it downward

    When a/c is running why would air stop comming through vent and go through defrost?

    The panels (or flaps, if you prefer) that are used to direct the air to the windshield, the panel, or the floor are operated by engine vacuum to be moved one way, and spring tension to move the other. When you step on the gas to climb a hill, or move out from a stop, the vacuum goes away (it is generated by the engine trying to get air, and the closed throttle preventing it from doing so), and the panels are moved into their rest position by the springs. So the air direction can change until the vacuum is reestablished to properly configure the ventilation directing panels.

    On my Aries K wagon, the air comes out the defrost when I step on the gas.

    When the engine is cold,check the coolant level.

    Make sure it's on max.


    A coolant system should be flush every two years.


    If you did a coolant flush recently then air pocket can be the cause of the un-even heating problem.

    The DIY method is to drive you car onto a ramp or a steep hill.

    Iet the engine cool off and top off the coolant tank.

    Set MAX heat + MAX fan

    Let the engine ran for 20 minutes wih the cap off and the trap air will escape from the coolant reserve tank,

    Check coolant level and top off coolant when the engine cools down.

    A shop will charge $75+ for this but using an air operated excavate tool!


    A car with over 90K miles may experience linkage problem to the heater control valve.

    The heater control valve (near the firewall) may be stick over time.

    Open the hood and move the heater to max and min. Back and forth.

    Clean and lube the linkage with WD-40 to free the heater control valve.

    If it's a vacuum type heater control valve then cash for leaky vac. hoses.

    Move the fan switch back and forth to re-new the electrical conductors.

    Pass a vacuum over the control panel to prevent dust build up behind the console.

    2004 Ford Expedition rear floor cool/heat

    Item Part Number Description 1 — Air inlet door 2 — Temperature blend door 3 — Headliner airflow 4 — Auxiliary mode door 5 — Floor airflow 6 18476 Heater core 7 19860 Evaporator core 8 19805 Blower motor
    The auxiliary A/C and heating system has the following features:
    • The auxiliary A/C and heating system is functional whenever the instrument panel mounted A/C control is in any position except OFF.
    • The auxiliary blower motor recirculates the air inside the vehicle. Outside air is not available to the auxiliary system.
    • Air is cooled and dehumidified by the auxiliary A/C evaporator core only if the instrument panel mounted A/C control is adjusted to a position that requires A/C compressor operation.
    • The temperature blend door and the auxiliary mode door are controlled by electric actuator motors.
    • Movement of the auxiliary temperature control between COOL and WARM causes a corresponding movement of the temperature blend door to mix air flowing through and around the auxiliary heater core.
    • Movement of the auxiliary mode control between PANEL and FLOOR causes a corresponding movement of the auxiliary mode door to direct air flow between the panel (headliner) registers and the floor duct.
    I would say the auxiliary mode door (#4) electric motor is not wokring.

    Auxiliary Blend Door Actuator —Air Distribution Removal and Installation
    1. Remove the RH quarter trim panel cup holder and access panel.
    1. Remove the screws.
    1. Disconnect the blend door actuator electrical connector.
    1. To install, reverse the removal procedure.
