Question about 2002 Kia Spectra

1 Answer

Climate control i put a stereo in my 2002 spectra and the heat does not work now. I know how to put a stereo in properly so that has nothing to do with it. You can hear the air when you turn the knob to make it come out but you cant feel the air at all. And there is no hot air coming out only cold air by your feet.

    Since you did not have the problem before the stereo job I would highly recommend you recheck your work

Kia Spectra radio replacement issues

Did you go to nearest Autozone store and ask them to do free OBD-II 'code scan'? If you're not near Autozone stores call other part stores and even repair shops and ask if they'll do a free OBD-II code scan. Write down all the codes they give you then either buy a manual or goto and register a new logon there. Its a good place to do research on your problem. Sorry I can't help more.

I hove 1998 jimmy heat works good ,when i change

The switch that controls the defrost, heater and vent settings have gone bad and needs to be replaced. Auto Zone should have that part or you can do the Salvage Yard for around $10.00. The switch that controls the setting has a diaphragm and when it fails, the vacuum from the air lines starts to make the sound you hear and there is not enough pressure to engage vent doors. It take about 20 min to replace from start to finish and your only going to remove two screws from the dash over the instrument panel, the trim panel around the stereo and climate control just clips in place. You don't have to remove the trim panel, it's to much of a pain. the climate control is held on by 4 bolts and the vent setting is held on by one bolt. Once you have the climate control panel unbolted from the dash, disconnect the vent control vacuum lines and then replace the vent control switch. Once replaced, put everything back together in reverse the way you took it apart. Good luck and check that the new vent control works before you put everything back together, just be take caution when you have the engine running to check.

Heater gets stuck on hot

I have the same problem! My buddy told me the problem is in the climate control. There is a resister that is not working properly, you have to replace your climate control. If you don't know where that is, it the thing you see below your stereo, lol! You can pick one up at an autowreck yard for cheap and to change it out is easier

Climate control blank

Sounds like a loose wire in the control module, you could try and take it out (or your stereo) and see if the wires are loose other wise its to the dealer for a costly repair.
