I think the heat control in this is electric and a little motor moves the damper open and closed you can check the two motors but its probable the heat control unit check and see if you have power going to heat unit

SOURCE: 2004 Chevy Suburban Temperature Control Issue

NO, PROBLEMS ARE NOT RELATED SEAT MODULE NEEDS TO BE PROGRAMMED AT CHEVY DEALER TO FIX ISSUE. IF YOU HAVE AN AUTOMATIC HVAC CONTROL UNIT WHEN YOU REPLACE THAT YOU WILL ALSO HAVE TO HAVE THAT REPROGRAMMED WITH THE LATEST UPDATES. BUT THERE ARE ALSO A LOT OF PROBLEMS WITH THE ACTUATORS THAT CONTROL THE MODE AND TEMP DOORS. THE ONLY POSSIBLE WAY TO DIAGNOSE THE PROBLEM CORRECTLY IS WITH A GM SCAN TOOL. GOOD LUCK

Heater blows only cold air


Air Temperature Control Blend Door Failure No Heat or no AC (dependes on where door sticks)

In all modern cars there is a tiny DC electric motor driven gear drive that moves a plastic door that blends heated and cooled air from the AC and the heater core, this is called (interestedly enough) the air temperature control blend door actuator. The motor that moves this door fails because the door starts sticking from warping, most common complaint is no heat but it can be no AC as well. To replace these parts (blend door and blend door actuator) you must remove the entire dash from the car. Always have this problem confirmed by a dealer or qualified repair shop as it is a very expensive repair.

Other causes of no heat in the cabin are engine thermostats that are stuck open (engine runs cold) or air bubbles in the cooling system.

My van has poor heat and changed antifreeze and temp hand stopprd working does that effect heat the temp sending unit


the sending unit will not affect heat but if its broken it will effect the fuel control by giving computer false info, i dont think theres a problem with the temp unit, i think the thermostant is bad and is stuck open or you are very low on coolant, if the thermostat was stuck open then you would get some heat not very hot and would take a long time to get heat. i would start by replacing the thermostat, it is very important to bleed air from system after coolant change or thermostat replacing, after filling run engine until fan turns on , let cool some to release preasure then remove cap start engine and top off, drive for 15min then park let cool and recheck coolant, hope this helps,

Interior thermostat control is stuck in position that it only blows air in floor, regardless whether its on heat or AC. It will blow hot or cold, just wont allow you to change air flow positions. Also...


check fuses and relays. there is an electric motor that opens and closes a "blend air door' that switches from hot to cold. the other lights may or may not be related. Is is very possible that the plug going into the control unit has a bad connection.

Put your heater temperature control in the max position on(this opens the valve for coolant flow through the heater core). Top off the radiator and the coolant resevoir. Make sure the cap is on tight and bring the engine up to operating temperature. Shut off engine, allow to cool, and top off the radiator again. Repeat these steps until you are sure it will not take anymore coolant. Drive the car at speed for 5 or 10 miles and recheck again when cool. It takes awhile to work air out of the system with multiple openings of the thermostat.

1998 Olds Aurora, no heat, no air, just blowing air out the front


i beleive these are a vacuum system. if air temp is in cold position you will get no heat. listen for hissing noise with motor turned off but key on. if you hear hissing noise you have a hose broken or off. you will have to find it

My 1988 f150 does the same thing..idling problem!


Having the proper thermostat in fuel injected vehicles is very important.They have a engine coolant sensor to tell the computer the temp of the coolant. If the engine is running too cold,(or cold all the time), the computer is going to tell the idle motor to raise the idle and to give it more fuel, which can damage the cat converter. These vehicles need a 192-195 degree thermostat. Also check the TP sensor (throttle position sensor for proper voltage) the green wire should read .7 to 1.00 volts.

If your guessing the thermostat, I think your guessing right. Easy job to replace it, use a fail safe thermostat next time to avoid this problem in the future. Good luck.

No heat. Fan blows cold air.


I think u may have an air temperature control blend door problem, the door is moved by a small electric motor, it is stuck in the cold position.
