Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Galant
When switching from cold air to hot air the heat does not come on. Also in the spring time when switching from heat to cold air we have a similar problem. The few times we have had success we were persistent in switching it back and forth and it would work. What could be the problem?
The galant heater problem is the temp acuator. That is the clicking sound your hearing. It is trying to work but it needs to be replaced. Mine has done the same thing. Its up under the dash almost directly behind the stereo. I had mine replaced for about 200. That included the part.
I do have another problem now though. I can't switch from vent to floor to defrost. It is stuck between floor/vent and defrost/floor. Cant drive in cold cuz defrost does not blow hard enought to keep window clear. Mechanic told me heater box warped and be about 2500 to fix. I call bs on this. Does anyone else have this problem?

I found I had to burp the coolant system on my 2001 Montero. Wait til its cool, remove the radiator cap, remove the bleed bolt/screw above the thermostat (just above the gooseneck attached to the return radiator hose) start the engine add antifreeze slowly. Watch the air bubbles come out out the bleed hole. I added about a gallon (surprised it took so much) Replace the bolt (be careful not to over tighten, I broke mine and had to drill out the bolt with a left twist drill bit). Again top off the radiator and replace the cap. The whole procedure should take about 30 minutes or so. Mine is now working like a champ.

Your problem is on the cable that full the heater door actuator or the actuator itself. try to look under close to accelerator pedal while turning the knob of the heater control.see if the cable is pulling the door actuator.if not... either the clips that is holding the cable is misplace or out of hook. otherwise you've got to replace the actuator which is a common problem on this car.they where all made of plastic gear.
