    I will try to make better sense of it. In my 02 jeep gc i have problem.

    It wont blow heat.

    It does have heat and it cuts in and out.

    I went under passenger dash and wiggled the wiring and heat cut in and out

    It finally died and i couldnt wiggle wire anymore,.

    took it to shop and they said the wiring and reistor was burned

    they replaced it and went to pick it up today and they said the blower motor was causing the burning and they would have to replace it too. Is it possible the blower motor would cause surges ruining the resistor and wiring harnass.'

I have very little heat from the heater in my 94 jeep GCL. It went out at the same time the temp gage stopped working. I just had the engine rebuilt? What do I look at first?

Did you replace the thermostat? If it's bad your engine could be running cold, not letting the coolant get hot enough to get proper heat AND making your temperature gauge read cold.

Why would my 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee only blow luke-warm to cold air when the fan is on high? First the heat went on the highest setting, so i used the second highest. Then it started to coll as...

Sounds like you need a blower motor resistor located down under dash on pass side next to blower motor. This is a comon problem and I have changed many of them. thats just the fan speed problem. Ive seen the blend doors break easily on those jeeps. thats inside the heaer core box and moves the flap from hot air to cold air. If it is stuck halfway -or mostly to cold- you may only get luke warm air. If they had the heater core out-maybe they possibly broke it.

2002 Gr Cherokee Ltd. - Fan not working on Heat or AC -any speed!

I have the same problem... If you have the auto climate control like I do there is a resistor at the bottom of the HVAC assembly right where the passengers foot would go. Be careful playing with these wires but you can wiggle them around and sometimes it worksish. But I've seen jeeps that the entire inside has burnt out because of that wiring. It is hard to find this part without going to the dealership stores say they can order it and then call later and say they cant. But you have to replace both the wiring and the heater resistor which will be a good days worth of work.

Heater core 2002 jeep grand cher.

I purchased a Blen Door repair kit. for my 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee after having only cold air blow out of the passenger side for over a year. I found it on EBay. It requires you remove the glove box, cut open the heater box and replace the blend door. I really didn't want to cut that open, however, with the tape that comes with it, I have had no problems with it leaking any air. The dual control no longer works, the temperature is now completely controlled by the drivers side, but to save $1200, I was willing to do this. I have taken the entire thing out before to replace the heater core, didn't want to do it again.

Heater not working

First check the heat control lever from on end to the other. Now this noise really 'sounds' like a mouse has made a nest inside the heater ducts. Or the flip door near the heater fan is out of place. It wouldn't hurt to flush the heater rad. Frankster016

Heat does not come out of pasenger side.

I believe its the adjuster doors. It is electonically turned from cold to hot and doors are probably seized. Its a very expensive fix, cost me over 1000.

good luck, its the first of many heater problems.

Heater not working

Heat adjuster door fix does not have to cost a lot of money. Search for Heater Treater. I lost dual control functionality but it is way better than the $1800 the dealer wanted to charge me.
