T&C heater controls

The heater on my wife's T&C does not change from defrost to panel to feet. I removed the cabin filter last summer because it was dripping condensation on the passengers feet, Could this be part of the problem? Do I need to install a new filter before I run the diagnostic test?

You don't need to replace the filter but you will probably want to go back there and check to see if you inadvertantly knocked a vacuum hose loose from the upper air damper.

When I run defrost, there is a bad moldy smell. Only happens on defrost setting. Is there a filter to change somewhere?


The condensation is not completely draining. You may want to see if it is plugged. Find the drain area in the engine compartment on the bottom of the firewall. Use an air compressor to blow air back through to clear it. I had a problem with that area which was a ford expedition design flaw. It was draining onto my O2 Sensor and damaging it. I had to make a bypass with a part form a GM truck.

2005 ford escape 3.0 V6... the heater/defrost last winter was barely enough to defrost & keep you warm & now in the summer the A/C was barely cool...had the a/c checked recently by dealer they said...


Does your vehicle have a cabin filter? If so, recommended change interval is 15,000 miles. If you have not changed it recently and/or you park under tree's, I will bet that the filter has more leaves on it than your driveway.

Okay, I've dealt with this a time or two. Surely, the dealer checked or mentioned the cabin filter?!!
How about airflow out of the dash vents, and....wait for it....a vacuum leak. I'm sure the dealer mentioned and checked all this stuff. But just in case he didn't....try these:

With or without a cabin filter, debris can get into the system over time and partially clog the airflow thru the system. The blower motor must be removed and using a light and mirror, one can look into the duct work and see the blower side of the heater core, and evaporator, as well as the drainpan. They should be fairly clean. If not, you will need to have it cleaned out.

If all is good with the filter, ductwork, and blower, all that is left is the electronic's which work in tandem with vacuum. The blend door actuator could be stuck between hot and cold, A. because it's faulty, or B. its jammed with debris, or C. low vacuum.

All the controls and actuators and electronic's would take hours to explain. So, read the following and go from there.

It sounds like vacuum is not getting to the vent, heat and A/C controls. Find the vacuum can. It may be under the hood on one of the inner fenders. The "one-way" check valve is usually located in the line and close to the can, make sure it works properly. The valve could be the very thing that's causing the problem. Trace the lines back to the vacuum block at the intake manifold or fire-wall, and also back to where the line goes thru the fire-wall. Check the can for leaks or obvious holes. They used to be just a plain metal can, but it could be a plastic ball. Check the lines as you go, for breaks and rub-thru's. Move the controls thru all settings and listen for vent door movement. Worst case is a bad vacuum motor or air flow position selector switch, and/or a faulty Blend Door Actuator. If you have been driving around with the Temperature knob or control set at the same spot for months, move it from fully cold to fully hot several times and wait for the air temperature to change each time. This will help reset the blend door and vacuum control system. Hope this helps... Let me know what you find.

Heater/defrost does not change position. windows fog, fan motor running as should just will not let air into cabin.


get the cabin air filter of ur endeavor changed by following method.
Procedure to Remove the Old Cabin Filter First off, you need to open the glove compartment; you'll see two screws on top of the glove compartment and two at the bottom of it.

Remove each one of them one by one with the help of a Phillips screwdriver, and then unhook the stop bar which you can find on the right side of the glove compartment .

Next, pull the glove compartment out - while pulling the glove compartment out we disconnect the light wire .

Now, you should be able to see two tabs on both sides of the cabin filter which we press towards the middle of the compartment and then we remove the cabin filter cover . After this, slide the filter out of the housing .

Putting the New Filter In Place Now, you can easily insert the new filter in the filter housing making sure the "up" arrow printed on the filter points towards the roof of the Endeavor and then we replace the cabin filter cover.

Next, insert the glove compartment back into the dash and while it is half way through you need to reconnect the light wire.

Finally, reconnect the stop bar over the hook and finally replace the four screws to hold the glove compartment firmly in place. And, that's it - you've just learned how to change cabin filter in Mitsubishi Endeavor.

Air flow out of A/C (HVAC) seems to be partially blocked. Noise increases with increased fan speed settings, but flow barely changes. Even on maximum setting the flow is not enough to reach driver or...


One of the Actuators for the doors inside your dash that controls and diverts air might not be working correctly. You may have to either replace the Actuator or Replace the A/C Heater Control. Your vehicle does not come with a Cabin Air Filter.

How to change cabin air filter?


Place the ignition switch in the Off position, remove the supplemental inflatable restraint fuse from the rear fuse panel. On 1997 models, the rear fuse panel is located in the luggage compartment. On the 1998-2003 models, the rear fuse panel is located under the rear seat. Remove the two retaining screws from the rear edge of the left sound
insulator. Push in on the snap tabs to release the insulator. Disconnect the left sound insulator electrical connectors, then remove the insulator. Twist the shift cable grommet and position away from the cabin air filter access door. It may be necessary to cut the tie strap and peel back the foam insulation to position the grommet away from the door. Remove the cabin air filter access cover from the A/C and heater module.

Remove the tape, then pull out the first cabin air filter element using the filter tab. Remove the tape, then pull out the second cabin air filter element using the filter tab. Remove the tape, then pull out the third cabin air filter element using the filter tab.

To ease installation, lubricate the new filter guides with silicon spray. Install the first clean air filter into the case. Using a long thin blade screw driver and filter tab, raise the filter until it is parallel with the A/C and heater module. Ensure the leading edge of the filter engages the filter case holding rib. Engage the new second cabin air filter in the tab of the first filter. Slide the second filter into the remaining channels of the first filter. Using the filter tab, raise the filter until it is parallel
with the A/C and heater module. Ensure the leading edge of the filter engages the filter case holding rib. Engage the third new cabin air filter in the tab of the second filter. Slide the third filter into the remaining channels of the second filter. Fold the tab of the second filter down. Fold the tab of the third filter up and over the second filter.

Install the A/C and heater module filter cover. Ensure the cover is properly seated. position the shift cable grommet. Position the left sound insulator to the instrument panel, then connect the electrical connectors. Install the left sound insulator fasteners. Torque the fasteners to 18 inch lbs. Be sure to install the fasteners in the proper locations, then install the SIR fuse. From a position off to the side of the air bag module, place the ignition switch in the "On" position. The air bag warning lamp should flash 7 times and then turn Off. Place the ignition switch in the "Off" position.

2007 Endeavor


Bill,

This is extremely common on Endeavors, and is caused by a blockage in the drain of the AC system. It can be caused by leaves/debris or insulation foam that has come loose. There is a bulletin to remove the foam and any leaves/debris under warranty (5y/60k) and install a cabin filter to prevent recurrence.

Your previous repair was likely done prior to the cabin filter update to the bulletin, and a cabin filter was not installed.
The updated bulletin that includes the filter was issued September 2008. If your repair was done prior to that, you did not receive the cabin filter, which is why you are backed up again, and you ARE eligible to the have the repair performed again under warranty, this time with a filter. Your dealer will need to contact their DSM for approval to perform the repair again, but they will honor it if you fit those circumstances.

This is not a repair I would recommend taking on yourself. It does require complete removal of the dashboard, all components, and complete ac/heater box (requiring draining of coolant and proper discharge and storage of refrigerant).

According to the shop manual you do not have one.
Air Distribution and Filtering adobe.gif Printable View (79 KB) NOTE: The air distribution system of this vehicle cannot be equipped with a cabin air filter.
There are 2 sources of air available to the air distribution system:
  • Outside air
  • Recirculated air
Recirculated air is automatically used when the electronic manual temperature control mode selector is set in the MAX A/C or OFF modes and can be selected in any mode other than MAX A/C, OFF or DEFROST by selecting the RECIRC button. Recirculated air is available in all modes except DEFROST. If the vehicle is equipped with an electronic automatic temperature control (EATC) system, recirculated air is used in OFF and is available in all modes except DEFROST. RECIRC mode is a timed function in FLOOR and FLOOR/DEFROST.
Air distribution within the vehicle is determined by the electronic manual temperature control (EMTC) function selector switch position, or is controlled by the EATC system in the AUTOMATIC mode. The air distribution mode on EATC vehicles may be overridden by the driver if desired. Air distribution doors are used to direct airflow within the heater core and evaporator core housing and the plenum chamber. An electronic mode door actuator is used to position these air distribution doors. One air inlet mode door is used to switch between FRESH or RECIRC air inlet. An electric actuator is used to position the air inlet mode door.
Air enters the passenger compartment from the:
  • instrument panel A/C registers.
  • heater outlet floor ducts.
  • windshield defroster duct.
  • side window demisters.
  • center flow-through console (if equipped).
Passenger compartment air is exhausted from the vehicle through open windows or body air vents.
