Question about 1999 Dodge Durango

1 Answer

Back vent's only blow cold

The front of the truck has little to no heat (living in Alaska and currently 45 below) and i've read about the blend door issues, but i can never find out if the vents up top in the back seat are supposed to be heaters or some recirculate thing they came up with?

    ok well the one that comes out of the heater core and goes to the passenger side is quite a bit warmer than the one that is on the driver's side. I'm not sure where the other hoses are. The one's i'm referring to though are easily compressed like there's not much water going through them but my level still shows to be full?

Take and feel your heater hoses outside under the hood and see if they are both hot. There should be a vacuum operated device thats on one hose when this is closed the water flow stops. check and see if this is working. If it works the next thing is to check the heater core the best and easiest way to flush it is to just swap hoses so the flow goes the other direction. Try this and then get back with me

2001Chevy tohoe Cold air blowing threw back vents but not front vents?

When AC on and cold air from rear but not front is usually a blend door/heater box issue. You may have a non functioning blend door motor that controls hot/cold distribution of airflow

2002 ford explorer AC and heat blowing in dash, but very weak from the vents

On the motorcraft parts web site, you can blow up
a picture of the HVAC Blend Door Motors & locations,
as well as part numbers

You can get failed motor from Amazon

With knowing where the motors are located, try switching
the air flow modes manually, to see what positions do not work

Then you know what motors to replace

I also have professional scan tool software & can see the codes
for the motors in enhanced data.

My heat works great in the front but the rear vents only blow cold

The blend door actuator is located in the left rear quater panel. It's right there when you remove the trim panel (left side rear) Below is a picture of it when panel is removed along with another picture of the air duct system. I also gave you a picture of the connector at the actuator. Make sure you are geting power and test opening and closing. Worst case you could make the blend door stay to where you are geting heat until you can repair the problem...11_6_2012_12_34_03_am.jpg11_6_2012_12_34_21_am.jpg11_6_2012_12_34_35_am.jpg11_6_2012_12_34_48_am.jpg

It's 20 degress outside and my 1998 navigator only blows heat from the rear vents, cold air from the front vents. What could cause this problem. I know the heating coil is not out because it blows heat in...

Hi, there is a separate heater core for the front vents, but my guess is your blend door actuator or the door itself is to blame. Just for grins, make sure both heater hoses are hot as they connect to the heater core in the engine compartment. If it's really the blend door, there is a pretty good answer at the following post:
Though it's a pain, I would check the actuator first. You have to remove the center console to access the actuator. Take it out to see if it's working (pull connector back in, turn key on and see if acturator turns when temp setting is changed). I also have a generic post on heater issues that may be worth your time to read ( Please let me know if you have any questions and thanks for using FixYa.
