    I have a 2000 gmc pu 1500 and It does the same thing when I turn on the heat after truck has reached about 195deg it will throw out a little heat for about 5 to 10 seconds, but very little heat at that. i can run around with the heat on all day and it will not throw heat. if it is the heat control or door where are they located and how to check them. thanks

    Sounds crazy but check your coolant level. The heater is the high point of the whole system so if your coolent is low(even just slightly) you won't get heat. When I had this issue with my 2005 sierra that's what it was!

Make sure antifreeze is full. run engine 10 min. verify engine is around 195 degrees. if not, try replacing thermostat. if it is running at 195, then maybe heater core problem or heater control not functioning properly

1989 GMC Sierra 1500 heater blows cold air. Changed thermostat. Both hoses are cold.

check antifreeze level add if low, and check intake heat control valve on ps side of intake if its locked shut it can be removed and a water pipe nipple put in place of it and the heater hose reconnected..if the water pump is good, it should give heat this valve should be on the intake with a heater hose connected to it..and its vacuum operated but will jam shut with age and cold weather..good luck..

2000 GMC Sierra 5.3L. Heater is stuck on full heat. It is not responding when I turn the dial to make colder.

sounds like you have a bad actuator motor that is what moves the door in heater box to change from hot to cold

2005 GMC Sierra 1500 - heater blows, but only cold air

Check coolant level. Check for heat at the heater hose going from water pump to heater core at firewall. Check to see that cable is moving coolant control valve from the closed to open position. Low mileage so it shouldn't be plugged heater core.

1998 GMC K1500 Sierra X-Cab Z71, Concerning the A/C - Heater. The fan blows good just doesn't open the heater core valve to let the heat in, it stays cold,How can I fix it ?

the heater sustem is run off of a vacum from the engine, there are actuators that open and close the "valves" pull the vacume lines off one at a time( the coloured hoses) and find out if you have either no vacum or an actuator un hinged from the "valve" door.
this should narrow it down for you message me back and we can work it out.

2000 gmc sierra 1500 5.3 v8. a/c heater control problem

your heat/cool and vent selection options are controlled by engine vacuum through small clear tubes attached to the rear of your climate control interface. Other vehicles have small steel pull wires that operate the desired changes. You might try removing the trim and any fasteners affiliated with the interface/console. GENTLY pull outward and look to see if any of these tubes are pulled off or cut/damaged. Did anyone recently install a new stereo in the vehicle? If so, the vacuum tubing and or pull wires that change your outlets could have been damaged when the stereo unit was pushed into place. Hope this helps
