Question about 1992 Toyota Camry V6

Open Question

Stripped gear on heater temp selector knob

I have a 1992 camry with a climate control module that is all controlled with knobs. The left most knob controls the heater tempurature. This module has the gear stripped in it so the lever on the bottom of it will not move to open the vent or the hot water valve. I need to take this unit out. I easily remove the cable from it that goes to the air deflector but I am having a hard time getting the one that goes to the heater valve (the right most or one closest to the pivoit point) out. Do I just pull it very hard out of the crevice that it is pressed into? or is there a trick to this. This whole issue is not discussed in my manual, it is pretty skimpy on the heater system details.

SOURCE: The knob that controls the doors to the HVAC vents is stuck

TRY CAREFULLY DISCONECT THE CABLE AT THE BLEND DOOR AND 1. TRY WORKING THE KNOB,
IF WILL NOT MOVE YOU NEED A NEW CABLE.
.2 GENTLY TRY MOVING THE BLEND DOOR BY HAND. THIS SHOULD GIVE YOU THE DEFROST FOR NOW. IF IT WON'T MOVE YOU SHOULD TAKE IT TO A GOOD SHOP THERE ARE A LOT OF SMALL AND EASLY BROKEN PARTS IN THE HEATER BOX. A DAMAGED BEND DOOR ALLWAYS RUINS THE CABLE SO IT WOULD NEED TO BE REPLACE TOO.

The heater is controlled by that valve - you don't get heat because that valve isn't opened. Take the control cable out of it and try to open the valve.
If it opens and the water flows freely then the problem is in the dash controls unit - more precisely in the rotary temp button (where that cable goes).
If you can't open it then it's clogged and must be replaced.

² Fault Code Tests
² Input Circuit Tests
² Output Circuit/Actuator Tests
The information that follows describes:

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.

Fan control knob on a/c and heater will only run on high speed. 2003 dodge mini van


I replaced the fan module under the glovebox on my 2005 Town & Country last night. Mine would not shut off at all with key on. It only blew on high no matter where I set the switch. Mine also had the climate control which makes a difference. If it is not the auto climate control it is usually the blower resistor if the other fan speed selections don't blow at all except on high.

2oo2 ford expedition heater will not get warm,thermostat and coolant replaced.The temperture control knob turn to cold goes cold,but when turned to hot ,only gets a little warmer.The blower is working...


Before you look at blender doors and Electronic stuff check out your Heat knob. You did not say whether you have a digital or manually controlled heater. On the manual controls the heater knob is subject to breakage.

If you take off the knob and look behind it, there is a metal clip with an irregular shape that fits onto the control shaft. The knob housing is subject to cracking. You can take a pair of pliers and gently turn the shaft. Your heat should immediately increase provided the vehicle is hot and the heater controls are set.

A new knob runs about $9 at a Dealer. Salvage yards want to sell you the entire control assembly and not the knob. If you think about gluing it, you will need to know where because the outer ring limits the turning range.

If you have a Digital dash, there is a set of diagnostic functions that will identify the defects. The problem is having references to the Codes, the technical terms, and knowing how to initiate the test cycle. You can try a Browser search for "Ford Climate Control", add Diagnostics, add problem solving, and you may find those answers.

I hope you are happy with my Solution and that you get your ride working.

is it the temperature control knob or the fan speed knob? the temperature control knob is hooked to a cable that operates a valve in the engine compartment. sounds like this is your trouble area...you can open the hood and locate the heater control valve near the firewall...have someone turn the knob to see if the valve lever opens/closes. if it does it is bad. if it does not move there is a problem in the dashboard behind the heater control unit.
