Check your relays the accessory relay right hand upper corner and the run relay middle left side if they are the same relay switch them and see if that works if not could be the body control module. Realys under hood to the right of the battery

SOURCE: 1999 Chrysler 300m heater won't get hot fan

Is there enough anti-freeze in the system?
If so perhaps the system needs bleeding.
On the front of the engine, on top near the big upper hose goose neck and nestled between the runners of the intake manifold is a small nipple that looks like a brake bleeder (10MM). This is a cooling system bleeder, a close cousin to the brake bleeder. When opened it will purge the system of air- likely the culpret you are experiencing. on a cold or just warm engine, this can be slightly opened with a wrench and the air can be "Burped" out. Attach a 1/4" clear hose to the nipple and open the bleeder until you see all the air has left the manifold. (Run the hose into a bucket and dispose of the used anti-freeze properly.)
if that doesn't do it, maybe the thermostat is stuck in the open position. Replace it with a cold engine and use a new gasket each time.
If all else fails, the heater core may be plugged.

SOURCE: heater won't turn off when it is turned off

Usually a sign of a faulty blend door actuator under the dash. The blend doors direct air thru the heater core and vents.

The heat/defrost won't work


This can be caused by a stuck blend door or a clogged heater core. Can you hear the blend door moving when you turn the temp knob? If not, it may have disconnected from the control panel or blend door. If the door works, remove the heater core and flush it or replace it.

Heating want work when i turn on the heat


Hello, when the engine is running and warm grab the heater hoses coming out of the Firewall and see if they are warm or hot. Most likely they are hot and that will move your search inside the cab.

I have a 1999 F150 which had the same problem. Get a pair of pliers and a rag to cushion the bite and pull off your heater control knob. Now protecting the plastic shaft of the heater control with a rag, turn the control valve CLOCKwise. Now run the engine on your truck and see if the cab gets hot.

If you look at the backside of the knob you will see a half circle metal clip. This clip will slip around the knob if the knob is cracked. It is hard to reposition and glue because the plastic knob has molded shapes which act as stops for the controls. The new knob costs about $10. Salvage yards won't sell them without the whole heater unit.

Should the knob not solve your problem, you will need to look at the flaps and doors under the dash.

Heater not hot temperature gauge moves ,shows it is hot but air flow and air temperature not hot


Hello, What you need to do is let the truck warm up and then feel the heater hoses. If the heater hoses are hot, the problem is under the dash in the ductwork doors or the heater knob is cracked.

If you have a nonDigital heater control with just a knob, they are prone to break. They run about $9 at a Dealer and many Salvage yards won't let go of them without selling the whole heater control. Since the shaft of the heater is plastic, you can gently grab the heater knob shaft after you remove the knob and turn it with a pair of pliers.

Your heat should work. If the heater does not work and you have water flow in the heater hoses under the hood; the remaining problem is with a ductwork door. Either the actuator (sometimes callled a motor,solenoid,dashpot,) is broken or a plenum door has jumped its mount and is stuck.

If you do not have hot hoses at the heater you need to check your heater water control valve. Some models use them, some models just rely on the ductwork to reroute the heat in the Summer. This valve would be where one of the heater hoses goes to under the hood by the Firewall. It may be controlled by Vacuum or Electric or a cable.

That pretty much covers it. I hope my solution is very helpful to you. I had to replace the knob on my 99 F150 and learned how common this defect is and what the Salvage yards are doing.

When moving temp control knob to right for heat,makes something makes clicking sound and no heat .


Sounds like your Heater Control cable has given way. When you turn the knob, its supposed to pull a cable that operates the heater control valve. Either the heater control valve is bad, or the cable needs to be repaired or replaced.

AC/Heater control valve :Lancer 2003 Misubishi


The sliding switch on the console is stuck in the cold position and the knob is pulled off. Use pliers to jiggle the switch as best you can. Feel under the center console and you probably will find the cable that is hooked up to the flapper. You'll know because when you jiggle the cold/heater switch at the upper console, the cable will move slightly. At the hookup of the cable to the flapper down under the console (passenger side) try to work the flapper loose to the open (or close) position. At the same time work the sliding switch (with pliers). The flapper will come loose and function properly. Try not to knock of the AC button like I did in the process. It flew off some where under the passenger seat. I'll find it sometime before summer. Ha.

is it the temperature control knob or the fan speed knob? the temperature control knob is hooked to a cable that operates a valve in the engine compartment. sounds like this is your trouble area...you can open the hood and locate the heater control valve near the firewall...have someone turn the knob to see if the valve lever opens/closes. if it does it is bad. if it does not move there is a problem in the dashboard behind the heater control unit.
