U will need to replace the air temperature control blend door actuator motor, this will require removal of the dash assembly, how do I know this? I am a Ford dealer tech and have done dozen's of these.

I have no heat in my 2004 mercury mountaineer and i have lights that do what they want ,,what is going on with this


number of possibilites for no heat.

1. Your engine thermostat is broken and stuck in the on possistion. In the winter months, if its stuck in the open posistion, the vehicle may never get warm enough for the heater to blow hot air (i had this problem once, 13 degrees outside and even tho we had been driving for an hour, not a single bit of warm air... fixed instantly with new thermostat) this is a cheap repair

2. you have a clogged/broken or something has happened to your heater core, it is located in the dash somewhere and hot coolant flows into it. This is not terribly expensive, but labor cost may be a bit high, sometimes there not easy to get to

3. and least likely is that your heater door wont open. Does your a/c still work fine? if yes, if you leave the ac on, and turn it from cold to hot, does it stay exactly same temp or cold? or slightly warmer? if it stays the exact same tempature of cold and you cant tell that anytinh has changed, the door that closes the ac and opens to heater could be stuck/broken, etc. or the cable or electric wire controlling it could be bad..

that concludes 3 reasons you could be without heat, as far as your electrical goes, I would make sure all your fuses are in good, otherwise, who knows, electrical in cars is a whole nother ball game

Heater doesn't get hot on 96 chevy truck. Blows good, just cold. Replaced thermostat, flushed radiator. Any ideas?


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.

Heater hot/cold control knob doesn't work need to have the hot air.


Check the motor on the top of the heater plenum. It turns a shaft to shift the blender door which controls the input to this plenum either the heater core or the evaporator core (ac). You may find the motor is OK but the shaft (plastic) has broken and the blender door has to be replaced. This is a costly job that involves removing this plenum after removing the dash. A shortcut I found online was to cut a hole under the blender door and replace it through this opening. After replacing you can seal up the hole with epoxy. I cut three sides of a square hole leaving the back uncut. Pull down and the blender door can be removed. My problem was on a 1997 Explorer. _6.gif

Temperature Control not working on 1999 Ford Explorer


Sounds like your temperature actuator is not moving or your temp door is broken. On max a-c ,coolant is shut off to your heater core allowing only cold air in.
