    My car just started doing this too. If I slammed the passenger side door hard enough, the thing would kick on, but now that doesn't even work. When I turn the dial on the control from the floor to defrost or any other position, I can hear the little motors running which changes the direction of the air flow. The recirc button lights up, the rear defrost works fine, and the AC button will light up also. The switch that controls the air speed doesn't do a dang thing. I took out the entire control box for the car and cleaned all the copper contacts for the air flow control, but when I put it back in, no change. I sure am glad this happened now that the temperature is below freezing!! Thanks Saturn! You're a peach!!

    Thanks, atangledweb! I pulled the control box out, and saw that there was indeed some evidence of one of the wires getting hot, around the feeding wire connector. I will try your solution, WITH THE BATTERY DISCONNECTED, and let you know what happens..... Thanks again!

Had the same problem on 2001 L200 and ran across this answer on another blog. ***Also warnings about dangers of working around air bags***

Pulled the plastic frame from around the radio.
Removed radio.

Behind radio is a large male,female connector feeding wires to the heater blower.

The wires were discolored from heat and blower would kick on when wiggled.At which point I could feel the discolored wires heat up.

Disconnected the connector and could see where it was burnt.

Cut the affected wires going into and out of the connector and jumped them with comparable sized wires and quick connects from Autozone.

Caution not to cut off more wire than needed (wire stripper tool was very handy) work space was tight. ***Disconnected the battery before making the repair ***

No heat / heater not working


not blowing air or when switch is on blows cold air when you have climate control knob turned over to heat? it could be a switch or blower motor or fuse if its not blowing any air. if its blows cold air when knob is on heat then is can be thermostat or low on coolant or it could be climate control module or it could be a air filter in dash.

Heat blows cold air front and rear when sitting still or @ low mph.


Usually a sign of low coolant or a blockage in the circulation.

Heater not working


What does that mean? It blows air but not hot air? It doesn't blow air at all with A/C or heat? I assume you mean it blows, just not hot. If so, make sure your car is running at operating temp. If the car isn't warming up, your thermostat is stuck open and the coolant can't heat up enough to transfer heat from the heater core to the air you're blowing out the vents. If your car warms up to operating temp just fine, you may have a heater core issue. Your core may be clogged with corrosion thus not allowing heat transfer as well. If the valve on the inlet hose to your heater core is bad it won't allow hot coolant into the heater core, once again no heat to the air blowing out your vents. One of these is most likely your issue. I hope this helps.
