SOURCE: heater core 2002 jeep grand cher.

I purchased a Blen Door repair kit. for my 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee after having only cold air blow out of the passenger side for over a year. I found it on EBay. It requires you remove the glove box, cut open the heater box and replace the blend door. I really didn't want to cut that open, however, with the tape that comes with it, I have had no problems with it leaking any air. The dual control no longer works, the temperature is now completely controlled by the drivers side, but to save $1200, I was willing to do this. I have taken the entire thing out before to replace the heater core, didn't want to do it again.

SOURCE: im replacing the heater core

If it is necessary to remove the heater assembly, the cooling system must be drained before removing the heater core.
When a heater core leaks, a new heater core is installed or the old one repaired.
Heater Housing

  • The heater housing is usually under the dash and must be removed to gain access to the heater core.
  • Procedures for replacing the heater core vary with the year, make, and model of car. It threfore necessary to consult the manufacturer's repair manuals for the proper procedure for replacement.
f74-01.gif The heater housing is disassembled to get to the heater core. Heater Core
  • Remove the access panels(s) or the split heater/air conditioning case to gain acess to the heater core.
  • Remove the heater coolant hoses.
  • Remove the cable and/or vacuum control lines (if equipped).
  • Remove the heater core securing brackets and/or clamps.
  • Lift the core from the case. Do not use force. Take care not to damage the fins of the heater core when removing.
  • To reinstall the heater core, reverse the removal steps.
When the heater core leaks and must be repaired or replaced, it is a very difficult and time-consuming job primarily because of the core's location deep within the firewall of the car. For this reason always leak test a replacement heater core before installation.

It sound like you have a wiring problem somewhere behind the dash an the only way to know what to fix is by trouble shooting . Find wiring diagrams for the wipers , radio , blower motor an see if they share connectors in the wiring harness or see if wiring is rubbed through .

Go to you tube an check out some basic electrical trouble shooting videos an how to read wiring diagrams , an you mite also check out how to use a DVOM -digital volt ohm meter .

It's not that easy , What Exactly should we fix ! Your best bet is to take it to a ASE certified repair shop or a automotive electrical repair shop.

Can you hear relays clicking?
Have you got headlights power?
Does the lights on dash come on?
Is the flashing really fast the alarm/immobiliser LED and is there a sequence to the flashing like 5 flashes then a pause?

Dash removal

you must first fix the whole that\'s letting them in then get a Chilton book or a diagram from the dealer and remove the dash panels there should be screws and the instrument cluster then unbolt the steering column straps and drop the column any thing under the dash must be disconnected and removed the dash vents for the defroster/heater case and any wires must be disconnected and labeled for easy memory installation the heater cables and plugs from the heater control and inside the glove box there will be bolts holding in crash bar straps that have to come out make sure you disconnect the battery first and wait 5 min. before starting so the air bag voltage can dissipate use some pieces of wood to help you hold it up when reinstalling a bottle jack and stands will help hold it up when your trying to plug things back in this is a very hard job and you must step back and take a break when you get frustrated we all have extreme determination to not give up when things get tuff but you must take your time and go slow at it to make sure you have connected everything as before it will really piss you off if you forget something and then have to go back in again I don\'t know where you are but if there is a U PULL IT yard near you get the harness there and the make sure the wires color codes are the same when reconnected it is easy to get confused so take it slow otherwise catastrophe can result good luck and post back LATER MAN!

What is a fuse link?

Looks like a regular wire but has different core that acts as a fuse inline. If you feel wires you will feel it kinks and stays kinked because it is one solid piece of wire. Braided/normal, are/feel more flexible . What trouble are you having?

Removing the dash so i can remove the factory radio in 1995 dodge minivan

Do not do it!!!! The dash basically does not come out. Everything on it comes through it. You can get the radio out without removing the dash, I don't know how but it does. I just took the dash out of a junk truck just for the wiring harness, You gotta be kidding me. I knew it could never go back in and be right. I suppose it could but t would take weeks. The steering wheel has to come off, there are bolts inside the vents holding it on, A million switches and wires, and the ac unit is a bunch of unforgiving cables that never get hooked back up right. If you want to save some time and trouble, just go to a store like best buy where they install radios, they can do it in 10 minutes, where it would take you 3 hours just to figure it out. Hope this helps.

Instrument cluster dose not work with out pulling fuse many times to get the cluster rest

Try rotating your key when its off untill everything in the car turn off, but don't actually start it. The point right before it starts. This does the same thing as pulling the fuse basically as it robs the power to it to start the car. You need to replace the cluster as this also happened in my 2005 Chevy Cavalier.

To replace you have to remove the dash entirely. Here is how.

The entire dash is held on with about 10-15 screws.
Open both doors and pop off the platic covers normally hiden when the doors are closed. Remove the screws from both sides here.
Then open the glove box. There are 2 screws that hold on a metal bracket, remove them.
On the top-middle of the dash there is a vent to defrost your windshield.One screw holds it on, remove it (phillips I believe).Then remove the screws under the vent so that the dash can be completly removed.
The top part of the dash a 5" strip closest the to windshield will have to be removed frist. By simply pulling it up from the sides.
The entire dash can then be removed fairly easy by pulling it apart from the housing for the odometer and across the entire dash.
The housing that is around your odometer can then be removed by simply removing a few screws across the top and under the radio. You will have to disconnect the wireing harness for the light adjuster left of the blinker on the dash. to remove this part. (I had a little trouble getting this out so I had to take apart the plastic housing for the ignition. 3 bolts slightly bigger then the ones on the dash under neath.)

The instrument cluster if held on by a few bolts/screws and wireing harnesses. Not hard to change once you get to it.

I have a 1997 Ford F150 and we just removed the dash and replaced the blend door for the heater. We put everything back together and we now don't have any blinkers or tail lights. We do have headlights.

Hello! You probably don't want to hear this but...Take your dash apart until you can view all connectors. Find the brown lead in the headlight switch connector...This lead feeds tail/turn signal lights..With key on...Turn on headlight switch and check for battery on brown wire...If there is no battery...Turn off key...disconnect negative battery terminal...Using an ohm meter set on the X10 scale...Trace lead back to fuse block; you are looking for an open. Check the fuse (15amp).

Next check that dash has a solid ground connection to the body.

Keep me informed via comments.
