Temperature gauge staying on C

Sometimes my van will heat up and other days it wont'. If the temperature is colder outside, the van will not heat up and therefore will not produce heat.

First thing i would do is the simplist, and change the thermostat. if that doesnt help, then you may need to backflush the heater core, because sometimes these will plug up.

SOURCE: my 2009 Dodge Grand Caravan keeps over heating for no reason

Have you checked the electric fan/fans on the radiator? It may also pay to check the sender sensor which starts and stops the fan/fans.This may sound a bit silly but is the rad.cap correct pressure setting and is the pipe to the expansion tank clear?...Maybe of some help.

Temperature knobs won't change temperature Chevy Tahoe


You likely have a HVAC control head failure. The rear heater problem is likely a door actuator, the rear wiper is likely a open wire in the door jamb in the top. The gauges are likely a cluster failure.

You have a Cold starting sequence that is similar to a choke. This system relies on getting a temperature signal back to the Computer. It should have at least 1 water sensor. Sometimes there are 2 sensors with one working the dash gauge and the other working the Cold start sequence. If you find 2 sensors just unplug 1 at a time and do this when the engine temperature has been rising. When you find the dash gauge sensor you will lose the reading on the dash gauge when it is unplugged. The remaining sensor would control the Cold start sequence, so replace that sensor.

I have a 2000 pontiac grand prix with a digital climate control system. The heat quit working, it doesn't blow out any heat. Now that it is warm outside the air stopped blowing out any air. The digital temperature on the climate control is not correct. When it states that it is below 30 degrees on the ext and it is warm outside the air wont be cold. Once it starts going above 30 degrees the air gets colder. Today the blower stop working all together. Was told it maybe the climate control unit was bad. You can hear the door opening/shutting when you switch the temp from cold to hot. But there was no heat blowing out whatsoever in the winter time. Could you please give me your opinion on whether or not it is the climate control unit or something else?

Check the water level. If the water is low it will not allow water into the heater core to produce heat. If there is water keep an eye on your temperature gauge It should reach at least 140 to 170 degrees. If it is staying colder than that you have a stuck thermostat which is allowing the water to flow to much and not let the engine warm up. The only other solution is if the fan is not working properly replace the fan relay for you blower.

Your thermostat is probably stuck open, not allowing the engine to warm up to its normal operating temperature. The coolant circulates all the time, so the radiator is constantly dumping all of that heat. Replace the thermostat, and your problem should get better. You may even consider installing a higher temperature thermostat if you live in a colder climate.

your vehicle has two heater cores in it one front and one rear,there will be two heater hoses running back the van under the passenger side of van,after van is run and engine is at operating temp,find the hoses and see if they are both hot or if one is hot and one is not.those hoses are the temperature that will come out your rear heater.sometimes people get a leak in the rear and just cut and plug those hoses,and they do the same with the two metal lines that have freon in for the rear A/C.

Temperature rises rapidly, but radiator is cool to touch


Classic sign of a failed thermostat; it is not opening as it should when reaching its design point of 160-180 degrees F so very little is passing through a tiny hole to the radiator, leaving it cold to the touch. If you remember the good ol' days, the temperature gauge would rise to a perdictable point and pretty much stay there regardless of ambient temps. They can fail open too; then the engine never completely warms up and the gauge then wanders and your gas mileage tanks.  
Just replaced one that didn't play fair since its failure was semi-random; sometimes it worked, sometimes not.   Your thermostat is being kind; it's stuck and this condition is crystal clear.
