Are you saying that the heater motor e.g. the fan is not working for there is no warmth coming from the heater.A lot of engines do not generate enough heat to work the heater at such a low temperature

SOURCE: will not start when below 40 degrees cranks and

you need to have the engine coolant switch checked,since the computers rely solely on sensors,the ect tells the computer how cold or hot it is so the computer will make it a rich or lean mixture to start the engine,if it tells the computer that it is 75 degrees the computer will lean the mixture like starting a car in the winter without a choke.

SOURCE: '02 Escape, heater cold when outside air below freezing

This could be a few different problems. I would recommend taking it in and having the antifreeze checked to see if it is of a sufficient mix to keep it from freezing. Sometimes the antifreeze will be to thin to keep it from freezing and it will start to freeze in the heater core. If this is the case, the vehicle may not run long enough to thaw out the antifreeze in the heater core to generate heat. Another possibility is that the thermostat is stuck in an open or partially open position not allowing the engine to reach a high enough temperature to generate heat through the heater core. The last possibility is that there is a blockage in the heater core not allowing the hot antifreeze to pass through the heater core thereby reducing the amount of heat drawn off of the heater core. These are but a few of the more simple problems but any of them should be treated by a licensed mechanic.

these are something to check coolant temperature sensor,defective spark plugs,or a plug fuel filter give these websites a try www.alldatadiy.com and www.autozone.com if all fails stop by your local library and get your hands on a Haynes auto repair manual for your car wish you the best of luck Michigan Man.

Rear window washers work in all temperatures. Front washers work only when outside temps are above 0 ! Once temps are below zero there is nothing!!!


Sounds like you got it. Water is freezing up the wiper motor or wiper transmission at a certain temp due to water leakage in what is supposed to be a sealed area. (inside wiper motor, wiper trans linkage). "SOUNDS LIKE" water may have seeped in the moer seal & froze it or stripped the gears of the wipers? Good Luck Frank M

Door behind actuator, should there be one, any pics or diagrams online ?


sorry no practicals here on this american battle wagon ,never see them here in spain but the heater core will no doubt be at the bottom of the heater/AC unit and if the actuator isnt working then no heat ,take any covers off around the heater unit and if need be tie a piece of string to it so it can be opened as and when ,then look for the parts later in a scrapyard.Sounds like a crude answer but i have never seen one so i cannot tell you ,if i was their then i would soon work it out for you and rig it up for some heat as nothing worse than a car with no heat even here in spain on the mediteranian where it never drops below 0?C ,in fact anything below 20?C is cold to me.

Difficult start at low temperatures for Isuzu D-Max


try a block heater. your engine is cold simple as that. you could try keeping inside a garage where its warmer or plug in a heater. they make a couple types of block heaters or it may already have a heater.

Heated mirrors not working


Hi. If it is a late model VW then you need to pul the mirror out. It is held in by clips, use a large flat plastic lever to pull out. Be careful as they break easily. Test the leads of the heater element with a bulb type test light. If it lights then replace the mirror glass, if not then it is more likely the switch. If only one works, then check the wiring harness at the rubber boot between the door and A pillar for broken wires. Also check that the outside temp sender is working, as in warmer climates the heater circuit switches off above 9 degree Celcius.
Kind regards, Neil

My 2002 Toyota Celica fogs up and collects moisture on the windshield during or after a rain. Visibility is a major problem. Need help, this is truly unsafe.


Can be that your heater core or hose inside car is sometimes releasing alittle heat at the clamps. So long the inside of the floor is not wet or damp or car is not over heating. I would not worry about the heater to much inside unless this does not work...
Change the automatic climate control up or down to cooler or warmer i usually run it at least upto 10 or 20 degrees different than the outside anytime i drive mainly during rain or snow.. So if outside it is warmer means you need to be cooler and cooler means get warmer. Also If you don"t run that on a regular basis a quick Ac on and defroster front and back works well and generally fast.I really think that is all of your problem just get comfortable with your automatic climate setting. once in a while it may happen again only because of rapid temp. changing from outside air to inside air in your car..Rain X works really well for a couple weeks between apps.and saves wiperblades during raining times. Always drive safely and good luck 11_21_2011_5_34_27_pm.jpg

Even though I let my car run for 20 minutes to warm it up, when I get in the heater is still blowing out cool air. When I start driving, it blows out warm air. But when I stop for a stop sign or light,...


check the heater hoses going from motor thru firewall to heater core / if they get warmer when motor is at 2000 rpms or higher then most likely problem is heater core stopped up / if the hoses dont change then thermostat could be stuck open ! good luck

Where is the blower motor resister on a 2005 chevy avalanche


from pictures I'm seeing, it looks like it's next to the blower. Remove the insulating panel above the passenger's feet and look up. See if it looks like the picture below:

Requires block heater, if you have one, it is not working. Replace cord and heater. If you live in extreme climate, may want to install a battery warmer as well.
