It's the little motor that controls the blend door flap in the heater box. The plastic gears inside crack. Remove the glovebox and you will see 2 screws holding the motor on the heater box, they are sorta hard to get off, but a small wrench will do it. The part is like $90 from the dealer.

Ac vent selector wont swich


not sure why you want to bypass it , this gismo moves damper under dash to allow wether you get cold or hot air out of vents depending on what you select on dash control (hi /low vents) if theres a problem with it most times it comes from ac condensate collection pan drain clogging up and water spills over into duct work rusting the damper shafts making it impossible for damper movers to move them , producing a fault or hot or freezing cold air all the time , sorry no easy fix for this but removing underdash ductwork and cleaning / replacing them lots of hours upside down with your feet on seats and head under dash , just kidding ...... most times we just take front seats out that makes plenty of room

I have a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland with automatic climate control. The drivers side blows cold air constantly. It has no heat.


sounds like the blend door motro may be bad, this motor is screwed to heater box, there are a few of these motors one for pass/side for hot/cold air then one to control position of air like defrost or vent or floor, then the driverside cold/hot air, i think this motor is on driverside part of heater box, to make sure locate each motor while moving all controls until you spot the one that doesnt move, then remove it and move door manualy to see if you get heat, then replace that motor, hope this helps,

1999 Suburban, A/C on warm air from front vents, cold air in rear


The car uses the same freon in the front as it does in the rear. If the rear a/c is working, you either have a plugged evaporator in the front unit, or perhaps a bad heater switch. Try switching the heater to hot and see if it blows even warmer air from the front vents. If so, the heater switch is working and then it sounds like a plugged evaporator or maybe a plugged orifice tube. That is a good place to start looking. Hope this helps.

Your heater valve is stuck open, also in a pinch you can crimp off your hose to the heater coil at fire wall. Try to find the heater valve vacumb hose under the hood see if it is bad and fixit. or some models have a cable to the valve could be broken.

The compressor and fan don't come on when the air conditioner is turned on and hot air comes through the vents. However, when the relays are removed and a test wire is inserted into the relay port, th


Sounds like a bad heater control unit, or bad control module. You are bypassing the switch when you jump the relays, so usaully the switching mechanism is suspect.
