    did that work? I have the same problem with my taurus however I changed my thermostat and it still doesn't work!

    I have the same problem. I already installed a new thermostat and it stilll blows cold air.

  • shadetree9 Dec 21, 2008

    My 99 has the same problem. If the car is coming up to temperature then the thermastat is not the problem. My car puts out a little heat on the floor when the fan is on low , but gets cold when air is changed to anything else. Have checked the door actuator and that is working fine. Any other ideas? Vacuum? Broken blend door?

    I have the same problem with 1999 ford taurus. The fan blows cold air. If I switch control to a cold and than to a heat with fan speed low, than I can feel a liitle bit warmer air coming out.

    Same problem, Heat gage shows normal engine temperature. When I feel the hoses that go through the fire wall and the bypass hose, it is like this. Hoses leading to and from the fire wall and the bypass are hot to the touch, the elbows going into the fire wall are cold. No warm air in the cabin does not matter what setting the fan is on. Help

    When I used to start my 4 Runner, the heat would come out in just a few minutes. Now, it takes about 10 minutes to get heat, and only after I have been driving at a pretty constant speed. If I stop at a light, the air cools. Anyone know what to do to fix this? Thanks!

    Is the fan not working at all, or is it just blowing cold air?

The problem is A small device that is called A (blend door actuator )it is located on side of heater core under the dash its A small white box with wires coming out of it .it opens the valve so coolant can run through the heater core.
you can open it manualy with ascerw driver by pushing the temerature control door shaft that is located behind it up.this is only temprerary fix until you replace this part.

If its blowing cold air it is probably just your thermostat. Its very cheap to fix and if you know anyone who knows anything about cars, chances are they can do it for you, its farely easy.

Sounds to me like the Tempeture Regulator relay or air control relay on your blower motor. If you have heat and no air flow...Most likely the Blower Motor, located around your heater core (Depending on your Year and Make).

Plymoth breeze vents blow cold air when ive been driving it and its on heat

There is a blend door on the heating box that is called a plenum. That plenum is behind the glove box. There are levers that attach to it on the outside and those control the blend door. Those levers can be run from vacuum or electric or even cables. Check to see if the move when you change the heat setting from hot to cold. But be aware that there is also a mode lever that changes where the air comes out so dont get them confused.

Heat van wont blow

There is a resister on the housing for the heat. This controls the speeds by lowering tne voltage. Look at the housing under the dash or behind the glove box. Follow the wires

Ac wont blow 2001 pontiac aztec

Are you saying the blower motor isnt working? Does the heat blow? If it doesnt replace the blower motor. If car isnt making cold air you can charge it yourself or go to auto zone the should do it for you. Check ac belt.
