You need to drop the glove compartment and cut through the plastic that covers the blend doors e mail me at mrenc@msn.com and I will tell you how to do this its better than dropping the whole dash!

The Jeep Grand Cherokee sucks air from the outside via a hole on the passenger side of the cowl. It's under the black plastic piece that runs under the wipers.

The air is then sucked via the blower and blown into the housing where the heater core and A/C evaporator core live.

The blend door is inside this housing as well.

This also depends on if you have regular climate control or the more advanced ATC digital climate control found on some of the Limiteds.

You could possibly take out your glovebox and see if there are any broken pieces going to the door accuator.

Otherwise if it's internal, you'll need to take out the heater/ A/C housing.

To get to this housing, you have to take apart your entire dash, lift the top dash cover off, and then you'll see the housing. You could possibly check for a few thing there.

Most everything there is vacuum controlled.

You have to drain your antifreeze and have your A/C freon discharged (use a professional to capture the freon).

There are 5-6 nuts holding the housing to the firewall. You have to reach these from the engine compartment.

Disconnect your A/C lines and heater hoses. Pull out housing.

This is definately an advanced project, thus the reason for the high pricing.

Hopefully you can get it fixed without having to take this Jeep apart entirely. Try diagnosing with a vacuum gauge if necessary before tearing it apart.

If the heater hoses are hot, the problem may be a faulty blend door under the dash. The blend doors direct air thru the heater core and the vents.

Heat is out on 1999 jeep grand cherokee limited


I had this problem on a 99 grand cherokee limited, It was the heater blend doors and if you have dual climate control one side usually goes out before the other. These blend doors are located behind the glove box unaccessible inside the HVAC shell.
(http://www.wjjeeps.com/hvac_sub_assembly.htm) Motor failures for this HVAC sub assemblies is also something to look for although much less common.
My local dealership estimated $$$$$$$$$950.00 because they have to remove the entire dash so I looked around for something else.

I used something similar to this and now have heat that is controlled solely by the knob nearest the driver. It wasn't very difficult just kind of a tight squeeze.
Hope this helps
GOOD LUCK

No hot air control


Probably broken blend doors if everything else is working, but its just blowing cold air. Do a google search for "Jeep Blend Doors" or "Heater treater" for more info.
