If the blower works (and your problem is that the air isn't warming up even after the engine has been running a while), the first thing to check is that you have enough water in the engine cooling system.

If the blower isn't working, check the associated fuse first, then the speed control resistor.

Could the thermostat cause the heater to only blow cold air even though the motor runs normal temp on a 2003 dodge caravan


1st of all, you need to check your anti-freeze level. If its not full, the coolant cannot/will not flow throughout your heater core which the coolant flow through to heat your vehicle. If it is indeed up to the proper level? Than, yes I would look into the thremostat. It may not be opening up.

I have a 1998 Honda civic 1.4i.Turned car on this morning heater on full to defrost windscreen.After 10 minutes still blowing cold air!No noises etc and all settings work but still cold air.Help!


Are the radiator hoses from the engine to the firewall hot? If so, it's probably not the thermostat, it's probably either the heater core or the controls not allowing the heat to get in. Best advice I have (because I had to replace the heater core in my car last year) is to buy a Chilton repair manual for it. it walks you through everything. If it is a heater core, be prepared for a long job...

My heater in my 2002 Pontiac Grand Pr ix doesn't work, just blows out cold air. Heater core is good, took it to a auto parts store, said it maybe a switch i need to turn on. but i don't know where that is...


Dont get advice from a parts store. Find a shop that works on your type of car. You may have a temp door actuator thats bad. But dont guess, have it checked out first.

Engine overheats and heater does not blows cold


Replace the Thermostat and check operation.
You may also have to check and replace the Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor located on the backside of the Thermostat Housing.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me on FixYa.com!

1999 Suburban, A/C on warm air from front vents, cold air in rear


The car uses the same freon in the front as it does in the rear. If the rear a/c is working, you either have a plugged evaporator in the front unit, or perhaps a bad heater switch. Try switching the heater to hot and see if it blows even warmer air from the front vents. If so, the heater switch is working and then it sounds like a plugged evaporator or maybe a plugged orifice tube. That is a good place to start looking. Hope this helps.

Ac compressort had to be replaced because it seized up. AC ran good for 2 weeks then went out, now the heater doesnt want to work half the time. i dont know if its my heater coil, a leak in my ac lines,...


THE BLEND DOOR THAT CONTROLS HOT TO COLD SWITCHING IS STICKING. THE CONTORL HEAD IS ELECTRIC AND MAY BE CAUSING THE PROBLEM. HEAT AND AC ARE 2 COMPLETELY DIFFERENT SYSTEMS EXCEPT FOR THE CONTROLLER UNDER YOUR RADIO. HEATER COIL IS REALLY A HEATER CORE WHICH IS A LITTLE RADIATOR INSIDE THE CAR BEHIND THE DASHBOARD.

02 galant heater not working


As me and my stepdad just discovered, the Galant came with an added feature to help the AC use less energy, by placing a heater valve within the dashboard. After pulling about 10-12 screws and half the dashboard apart, we simply opened the valve permanently. Many cars out there work that way all the time. Now after changing those lousy clamps into actual hose clamps by the firewall, my wife enjoys cool air in the summer and heat the whole winter. Hope this helps, there is a site that will actually show you a video of putting dash back together, as author did not film the disassembly.
