Only getting lukewarm air from heater even with new thermostat

Blower fan only works in one position, new thermostat made no difference, someone may have hotwired cooling fan to be constantly on, radiator level is fine.

  • fatelistic Dec 10, 2008

    we dont think it has anything to do with the ac....could the air temp switch not be working right? how would you test that?

Ok with the engine at operating temp feel both of the heater hoses. both should be hot, if one is hot and the other is not . then you have a clogged heater core. flush it out and you will have good heat.
also check the wireing system for the cooling fan for any obvious wires that have been added or repaired. if all ok check the relay located in the fuse box under the drivers side dash and fuse # 13 & #15... the fuse pannel on the drivers side strut tower ( under the hood ) also has a sub-fan water temp relay

Why are my cooling fans for radiator running constantly?


The cooling fans are supposed to run any time the a/c is on in order to keep air flowing across the condenser. Your a/c will not work properly at idle if they quit.

2003 ford taurus blows lukewarm when the heat is on. Blower blows fine and a/c works great.


Check out the heater hoses for warmth. Both should be the same with the water flowing. If they are not, the water is not circulating.

There are 2 ways the heater can work. One style varies the amount of water flow to control the heat levels. The other uses the blend flaps in the ducts to push air flow around the heater core.

If the heater hoses are not circulating water, a part called a flow valve is to blame. Check out the autoparts sites for photos of the flow valve for your car. If you have the blend flap system, a solenoid called a "motor" is not changing the position of the blend flap in the dashes' ductwork.

Need to know where the fan motor and resistor is located on the 2003 Ford Focus. Car overheats while idling, driving, in park, and it'll still overheat when the heater is on. Tell me what site I can find...


Cars usually overheat when the thermostat is faulty, coolant level is low, or the water pump fails. If your cooling fan on the radiator does not kick on shortly after the engine reaches operating temperature, you may have a bad cooling fan, cooling fan relay, or cooling fan fuse. If your engine is overheating, start by checking the fluid level, and installing a new thermostat.

A blower motor resistor is the device that controls a car's cabin heating and air conditioning unit's fan speeds. This usually won't cause the engine to overheat, your A/C fan may not function or only function at one speed. Here is a Blower Motor Resistor from Autozone: http://www.autozone.com/autozone/parts/2003-Ford-Focus/A-C-Heater-Blower-Motor-Resistor/_/N-jk8uvZ91tag

I have a 2000 pontiac grand prix with a 3800 v6 in it! For some reason the temp barely peaks over 180! The blower motor seems to kick out lukewarm air. the switch doesn't work on 1,2,3,4! It does work on...


You have two separate issues
lukewarm air causes:
not enough coolant
restricted heater core
stuck open thermostat

fan speed works only on 5
blower motor resistor is bad

Hope this helps, it it does please leave feedback Thank You and Good Luck

What does the fault code 0483 mean for a 2005 dodge ram 3500?


computer confused by cooling fan voltage/current level. Is the fan working? If yes, may have a short. If no, try hotwiring to battery to see if it's good. If fan works by hotwire, suspect relay is bad. Check all wiring before buying any parts. Relay does not click in until engine is hot. Let me know if you have more questions.
